Environmental plan
Our approach
We instituted in 2003 the Environmental Policy in which our stance on the environmental activities was manifested.
In all the branches and business places, environmental activities are carried out to suit their respective circumstances. In the principal office, the Environment Management System according to ISO14001 was introduced and activities are implemented thereon. Activities benefited from this system include the use of the system to guarantee products free from substances banned by clients who, in consideration of the impact on the global environment, pursue green purchasing and require such guarantee. We are also carrying out resource and energy saving activities so as to contribute to the improvement of the global environment.

We recognize that the global environmental issues are important common issues of mankind. From this standpoint, we aim to maintain natural environment and conduct business activities which contribute to build a rich society harmonious with the environment. Taking advantage of our history of starting a business in recycling steel scraps, we contribute to the global environmental conservation by promoting resource and energy saving in the wide range of our business including recycling of automobile materials.
