Type II environmental label

Specifying our voluntary standard "Type II environmental label" to design environmentally-conscious products, our company is developing and manufacturing environmentally-conscious products aiming to reduce the environmental load of products.

Revising the standard of the "Type II environmental label" in 2012, an assessment based on a further strict standard was started.

Approaches to chemical substances contained in products and parts

For chemical substances contained in products, various legal regulations and requests from industry groups and customers are increasing year by year.

Based on wide-ranging requests, our company investigates the chemical substances contained in products and parts to ensure environmental consideration of the same.

In addition, we ask suppliers to manage chemical constituents in accordance with the list of environmentally hazardous substances in the Green Procurement Guidelines.

An LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) means an assessment of the load on the environment through the life of products (overall life cycle).

Life cycle of products


Models for LCA implementation and LCA for part of the products were selected in 2012.

Case examples of implementation will be increased in future to compare the LCA results for each product category and utilize it as an effective tool to reduce the environmental load.
