Examples of environmental activities

Responding to climate change

Promoting energy saving in hardware

The business consumes a great deal of electricity from electric furnaces and is designated a Type 1 Designated Energy Management Factory. The personnel of the factory work to rationalize energy use, especially with regard to hardware.

Reduction of carbon dioxide (CO₂) emission

The fuel used in the production process was converted from LPG (liquefied natural gas) to natural gas in 2019. We also converted most of the fuel used for heating from kerosene to natural gas, in the winter of 2021.
Furthermore, by 2022, we adopted 100% renewable energy sources, effectively reducing the CO₂ emission coefficient from electric energy to zero.

Waste management and resource saving

In addition to improving production efficiency, we are selecting and reviewing recycle-conscious waste treatment companies and working to reduce waste with a target of 3% less than the previous year. The company will continue to assess and implement environmentally friendly cycles.

Examples of social contribution activities

Accepting apprentices from Thailand

We accept apprentices from Thailand, where the KITZ Corporation parent company has a factory. The company hopes they will bring home the skills they learned through practical training and make use of the Japanese company culture and labor practices in their home country.
