Eco-friendly efforts

Environmental Philosophy

Under the slogan "A better environment for the next generation," we will proactively engage in environmental conservation activities, aiming to achieve harmony between economic development and an environment in which we can live in harmony with nature.

Environmental Objectives and Targets

The issue of global warming is one of the most important environmental problems that affects the very foundation of human existence, given the magnitude and severity of its expected impact.
Current global emissions are more than twice the amount absorbed by the natural world, and the average global temperature at the end of this century is expected to rise between 1.8°C and 4.0°C compared to 1980 to 1999.
Since obtaining ISO 14001 environmental management system certification in May 2001, we have been actively working on global environmental protection with the participation of all employees.
The Global Environmental Protection Committee, established in 1992, is furthered by five subcommittees, each of which sets annual targets for energy and resource conservation, resource conservation I and II, environmentally friendly products, and environmental improvements, with the aim of creating a recycling-oriented society.

6.Reduction of main and auxiliary materials Improvement in reduction of main materials (t)
Improvement in reduction of secondary materials (t)
7.Reducing CO2 emissions from logistics Reduction of CO2 emissions from transportation (t/billion yen) (CO2 emissions from transportation per 100 million yen in sales) 57.8

Environmental Conservation Activities

We are developing internal initiatives for global warming prevention, pollution prevention, resource conservation, waste reduction and proper management of chemical substances, mainly through special committees.

In order to further improve the effectiveness of these efforts, all employees are actively involved in these activities.

  • Global warming prevention measuresImage

    1.Global warming prevention measures

    We are working to reduce CO2 emissions, mainly through energy-saving activities.

  • Pollution Prevention MeasuresImage

    2.Pollution Prevention Measures

    We have established our own standards, which are stricter than the legal standards for water quality, air quality, noise and vibration, bad odors, and other factors, and we periodically measure them in an effort to ensure proper management.

  • Resource ConservationImage

    3.Resource Conservation

    We are working from the stage of product design and development, such as downsizing and sharing the number of parts, to save resources.

  • Waste ReductionImage

    4.Waste Reduction

    We try to reuse and recycle waste by separating it appropriately.
    In addition, we are striving for proper management of the waste generated through the use of electronic manifests and confirmation of disposal sites.

  • Proper Management of Chemical SubstancesImage

    5.Proper Management of Chemical Substances

    We use SDSs to check the impact of the chemical substances we handle on the environment and human health, and handle them appropriately while complying with the relevant laws and regulations.
