In recognition that problems affecting the global environmental conservation are serious matters for all humankind, realization of a sustainable society in harmony with the environment is our top management priority and we construct environmental management system aiming to be an environmentally-friendly "good corporate citizen".
The Company has established Environmental Protection Action Guidelines which outlines our efforts to address environmental issues within our business activities based on our corporate philosophy.
Since the establishment of a department dedicated to environmental issues in the head office in August 1992, the Group has worked on reducing environmental load and is currently promoting group-wide activities toward the global "environment-conscious business operations."
Under the supervision of the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee, the Sustainability Promotion Department, of the Corporate Strategy Office chaired by Executive Vice President and Executive Officer in charge of environmental issues, is responsible for overall environmental management work and oversees the entire group.
At the Group, we hold meetings involving management-level staff that are aimed at enforcing managerial guidance and a better understanding of environmental protection measures. We also actively conduct a training for environmental experts who carry out the environmental guidance.
In our offices and distribution centers around the country, we are working on a variety of measures towards the prevention of global warming, including energy conservation, power-saving, and so on.
We are pushing through an environmentally-friendly green logistics program, as well as promoting environmental protection measures.
