Environmental Management Philosophy

    We Actively Contribute to Protecting the Global Environment.


Considering the environment as “something left in our charge by our descendants,” we view activities to improve and protect the environment as one of the corporate management’s most important responsibilities. Based on the concept mentioned above, we promote activities aimed at leaving a clean world to future generations.
