Reducing CO2 and Greenhouse Effect

A company-wide effort is being made to reduce our company’s carbon footprint: Cool Biz, Warm Biz, No Overtime Day, etc.

Resource Conservation and Waste Reduction

Not only are efforts being made to reduce waste overall, we also categorize our waste and reuse food waste for feed and compost. We have also taken measures toward methanation and recycling.

Reducing Environmental Pollution

We have switched to natural gases for all of our boilers in order to reduce NOX and CO2 and minimize the impact on the environment. All vehicles are encouraged to avoid engine idling in all areas of our facilities.

Environmental Awareness and Protection of the Ecosystem

As a means of increasing employee awareness, we provide educational programs targeted at protecting a diverse ecosystem and contributing to society.
