1. Environmental awareness and education
We hold regular study sessions to educate our employees about the environment in order to raise their environmental awareness and understanding.We conduct awareness-raising activities for environmental conservation among departments and offices through environmental awareness surveys and eco-questionnaires via the In-house intranet.
2. Reduce energy saving and CO2 emissions
As a result of company-wide efforts to shift to energy-saving equipment, such as upgrading air conditioners to energy-saving types, switching to LED fluorescent lighting, and switching to HV vehicles, as well as familiar eco-activities, such as turning off and reducing unnecessary lighting, thoroughly controlling air-conditioning temperature settings, and reducing standby power, CO2 emissions in fiscal 2019 were 1,255 tons, a 37% reduction from 2,016 tons in fiscal 2007. As a result, CO2 emissions in fiscal 2021 were 1,062 tons, a reduction of approximately 47% from 2,016 tons in fiscal 2007.
3. Utilization of waste
We are working towards the formation of a recycling-oriented society, where waste becomes a new resource and circulates in society. We recycle lint, finished products, and other waste from the sock production process into RPF solid fuel, which is mainly used as an alternative to coal by paper companies. We will continue to promote waste reduction by taking optimal measures to create a recycling-oriented society.
