Initiatives for environmental activities

Reduction of waste emissions

In order to promote recycling, waste is properly separated and the company-wide recycling rate is maintained at over 80%. We are also working on introducing new equipment and making process improvements in order to reduce the loss from defects that occur during the manufacturing process.

Promoting paperless by introducing mobile tablets

We are striving towards a paperless work environment through digitizing data for package pick-up and manufacturing instructions as well as introducing mobile tablets. We've achieved waste reduction and business improvement by making it paperless through reducing the number of documents and halving the number of records; other effects are to be expected in the future.

Compliance with the RoHS Directive / Green Procurement

In order to comply with the RoHS Directive and green procurement, we examine restrictions and banned substances of materials and parts for each business segment and promote substitutions accordingly. For example, precision positioning stages are being adapted by replacing brass components with low-cadmium materials. We are planning to sell compliant products one after another, along with special order products. In addition, in terms of our corporate activities, we recognize that global environmental preservation is of the utmost importance for earth and will act with sincerity to protect and improve the global environment.
