Basic Philosophy

Our Group contributes to society by lowering defect rates in our manufacturing processes, reducing waste generated and further treating wastes to enable recycling, as measures to combat the depletion of resources.
And we contribute to the resolution of water resource issues by recognizing the tap water and well water used in our business activities as water resources, and by undertaking the reduction of usage, as measures to combat the depletion of resources.

In addition to our regular waste emission activities, we were able to reduce the amount of waste by updating the factories and etc. in fiscal 2017.
