Basic Philosophy

Our Group contributes to society by improving 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 effective usage, as measures to combat the depletion of resources.

Reduction of Waste Generated

In fiscal 2018, the amount of waste was 20,103 tons and the basic unit was 0.053 tons/1 million yen, a 5.6% increase from fiscal 2017 due to increased wastes during manufacturing processes. We will continue improving our production processes and take new actions such as reusing waste oil, etc. for further improvement.
