To mitigate global warming, we will seek to reduce the carbon footprint of all of our products and services, not just in our own business activities but in every stage of the productʼs lifecycle.

Realization of a recycling society

To achieve the efficient and effective use of limited resources and reduce our environmental impact, we will promote the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) at each stage of all corporate activities, from raw material procurement to disposal and recycling.

Creation of a society in harmony with nature

To protect nature's living things and maintain their habitats, we will be conscious of the need to preserve biodiversity at various stages, including community development, raw material cultivation, and manufacturing.

3. Means


We will endeavor to develop and provide environmentally friendly products and services. We also will strive to adopt innovative technologies and methods.
