The Kurabe Group shall operate an environmental management system with the goals of reducing the environmental burden from procurement of parts and materials through use and disposal of products, realizing a sound material-cycle society, and protecting the global environment, with the aim of improving its performance.

In our products and business activities, we will take the following measures to reduce the environmental burden

  • To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we are working to develop a new method for energy and resource conservation.
  • We (1) manage and control the discharge of wastes in order to reduce them, and (2) recycle them in order to make effective use of resources.
  • We strictly manage hazardous chemical substances in our products and materials.
  • We strive to implement design/development processes that take the life-cycle of our products into consideration.
  • We endeavor to protect the local environment by preventing the pollution (air, water, and soil) and noise.

We will comply with all environmental laws and regulations as well as all other requirements to which we have subscribed. In order to achieve this policy, all employees will set targets for regional environmental protection and strive to continuously improve the environmental management system.
