Promotion of green purchasing

We joined the Green Purchasing Network in 1998 and compiled "Green Procurement Guidelines" in 1999, making a conscious choice to purchase environmentally aware products preferentially.

When ordering office supplies in the company, we are striving to purchase them only after confirming whether they are environmentally-conscious or not, as well as the cost.

In particular, for office automation paper, which is purchased in bulk, a certain selection standard pursuant to the general performance index system is established to prepare the list for recommended products.

Environmental consideration by renewing working clothes

A contract for carbon offset when renewing working clothes was concluded.

The carbon offset means a system to offset all or part of greenhouse gas emissions by reducing emissions or amounts absorbed elsewhere.

Greenhouse gas of 5 kg per set of working clothes was offset.
