We manufacture products using parts that conform to laws, regulations, and other regulations concerning environmental load, and parts that contain no banned substances and can be proven to be non-contained.
Structure for carbon neutrality
  • To date, we have worked to reduce CO2 at our plants by upgrading and consolidating our manufacturing facilities, switching from heavy oil to gas/electricity, and adopting high-efficiency hydraulic units and LEDs.
  • Going forward, we will further strengthen and expand our approach by utilizing renewable energy, innovating production lines, and reorganizing plants.
