Reducing the environmental impact of our facilities

We have installed a solar power generation system at our Narita Terminal, and at Misato Green Warehouse (Misato City, Saitama), we are using renewable energy through Green Power Certificate System. At other facilities, we continue to introduce energy-saving equipment, strict temperature control, and turn off lights during lunch breaks.

At all our facilities, we reuse wooden pallets, recycle plastic wrap, bands and cardboard, and recycle office paper.

Minimizing Environmental Impact from Business Activities

In Japan, we are undertaking several environmental initiatives such as requesting affiliated businesses to reduce automobile idle time and promoting fuel-efficient driving to reduce automobile emissions, replacing forklifts with battery operated alternatives and replacing company cars with energy-saving models.

Outside Japan, we work on reducing CO2 emissions by replacing trucks owned by local subsidiaries with new ones.
