CSR Information

Zero Emission Activities

We proactively engage in zero-emission activities in efforts to use precious resources effectively and achieve a recycling-oriented society.

Zero emission activities

We set our resource recycling rate goal at 99% or more, exceeding the JAPIA target rate of 85%, and we have achieved a resource recycling rate of 100% in actual practice.

In order to achieve a resource recycling rate of 100%, it is crucial to perform thoroughgoing separation, and to outsource recycling processing work to the appropriate service providers.

We set detailed rules at each of our business sites, create Environmental Dojos where we provide employees with repeated training, and establish Recycling Centers for thoroughgoing waste separation. In addition, we perform site visits to check on the state of operations performed by waste processing contractors, and we confirm that appropriate processing is being carried out.

The result is that we have been able to achieve a recycling rate of 100% at our company and our domestic group companies, and to maintain it to the present.

While maintaining our 100% recycling rate, we will also undertake activities to reduce waste volume.

Initiatives at each business site

Recycling of waste plastic and food waste

We store and transport soft plastics in compact form using compression packing machines, and recycle using the appropriate waste processing service providers. High-quality materials are recycled into plastic raw materials and high-calorie fuels.

Food waste is reused as feed for livestock or recycled as compost through a fermentation and decomposition process.

Thorough separation

In order to maintain our 100% recycling rate, we also thoroughly separate ordinary daily waste at our business sites.

On-site checks of waste processors

To ensure proper implementation of our zero-emissions policies, each business site conducts regular on-site checks of waste processing service providers to confirm that waste is being processed according to contract.
