Sustainability Initiatives

Based on our management philosophy of contributing to the creation of an affluent society, we believe that it is essential for the stable operation of our plants that we contribute to society as a member of the local community and earn the trust of the local residents. We regularly hold information exchange meetings to explain our disaster prevention and environmental initiatives and to gain their understanding of our plant operations.
