Minimization of Environmental Impac

Manage the emission of pollutants that are inevitably generated in the manufacturing process by measuring, analyzing, and reducing.

  • 01. Reduction of Water Consumption

    We develop water conservation plans each year to reduce water consumption. We have controlled the pressure of main public water supply sources as well as major waterconsuming facilities such as restrooms and shower rooms. We have also controlled the steam pressure and temperature of condensate water and regularly cleaned boilers to reduce the overconsumption of water. By monitoring our water consumption levels, we will continue to identify and implement improvement plans to conserve water resources.

  • 02. Water Pollutant Management

    We treat all the pollutants generated within our product manufacturing process. the effluents discharged from our manufacturing process are safely treated through internal water treatment facilities and are managed in accordance with internal guidelines more stringent than legal thresholds. Wastewater treatment plans and facility operational manuals are also developed in consideration of worksite-specific conditions to thoroughly manage the quality of our wastewater.

  • 03. Air Pollutant Management

    We comply with self-measurement regulatory standards in accordance with air control manuals to identify air pollutants generated from our products and our manufacturing process. To reduce our annual nitrogen oxide emissions, we stringently manage air inflow ratio for our boilers and document measurement outcomes in our NOx emissions management log and measurement register. To reduce the concentration of air pollutants emitted, we make semi-monthly measurements on formaldehyde, fluorine, and phenolic compounds and semi-annual measurements on dust, NOx, SOx and THC.

Climate Change

Strive to reduce climate change risks.

Climate Change Risk Management

Manage climate changes in four stages, from risk analysis to monitoring and improvement of risk response. The results are reflected in the business strategy and risk management.

  1. Climate change risk analysis.
  2. Review countermeasures.
  3. Risk management and response.
  4. Monitoring and improvement of risk response performances.

GHG Emissions Management

Analyze the causes of GHG emission, and achieve our goals by subdividing strategies into mid- to long-term plans.
