The Great East Japan earthquake, occurred last March, brought not only earthquake disasters but also environmental damages, such as radiation damages caused by the nuclear accidents. It seems highly possible that the disaster causes economic structural changes in Japan. In order to maintain a viable environment for every creature on the earth, we must strive to improve the environment seriously on a global-level.
We recognize decreasing an environmental loads and leaving the comfortable global environment for future generations through daily activities as one of the most important business challenges. I herein inform you of the result and status of environmental preservation activity in 2011.
