Eco-Communication Initiatives

We actively disclose information and promote company-wide awareness as part of our eco-communication initiatives.

Basic Environmental Education

As part of our environmental education, we have divided our education system into general education and specialized education. For general education, we provide education on basic environmental knowledge necessary to all Japanese employees through measures such as e-learning. On the other hand, specialized education provides education of specialized environmental knowledge required for each specific function (development, design, sales, manufacturing) to operate, as well as education on the ISO14001 and ISO19011, provided with the goal to understand the mechanisms and train internal auditors.
