Environmental report 2015

Message from the President

As the global environment, politics and economics rapidly change, the issue of living environment has been revealed. We are now supposed to grasp environmental influence caused by nature power such as volcanic eruption, earthquakes, and torrential rain, and environmental destruction due to evolution of human lives, and take them seriously.

We recognize that one of the most important management issues is leaving the comfortable global environment for future people by reducing burden on the environment throughout the business activities and we do our absolute best.
We herein report our environmental protection activities and their outcomes in 2015.
