Environmental Initiatives

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 purpose・Environmental goals

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.
