2. We will comply with environment-related laws and regulations related to our activities and other requirements that we have agreed to.

3. We will work on the following as priority issues for environmental management regarding energy saving, resource saving, waste saving and reduction of environmentally harmful substances.

3-1.Resource saving, waste saving
(1) Reduce environmental load and improve productivity by improving processes, etc.
(2) Reduce the basic units of raw materials such as steel, coating, and organic solvents.
(3) Reduce factory waste

3-2.Energy saving
(1) Energy saving policy Optimize the management of equipment and machinery and improve the energy consumption intensity by 1% or more per year
(2) Development design policy Consider reducing energy consumption required for production at the stage of material development and product design
(3) Policy on new installation and renewal of equipment Consider energy consumption efficiency when selecting a model for new or renewal equipment, regardless of production equipment or office equipment.


4. In order to achieve this environmental policy, we will set environmental targets on a regular basis and promote environmental management with all employees.

5. We will contribute to society by raising awareness, so that we can effectively tackle the environment for our suppliers.


This environmental policy will be thoroughly disseminated to all employees and will be disclosed to related parties such as customers and suppliers and the general public.

Our Approach to Sustainability


What we can do for the children's future. Toward a Safe and Sustainable Society


Toward Carbon Neutrality

1)Development of materials, specifications, and manufacturing methods that enable decarbonization

  • Development of materials that can be used in various environments (energy saving, heat resistant, wear resistant).
  • Development of manufacturing method and tooling to achieve long life, low cost, and high productivity.

2)Product development for electric vehicles

  • Establish product specifications to achieve low cost, low friction

3)Increase development speed by improving efficiency and productivity

  • Establish evaluation method to reproduce phenomena (tracking, crack resistance)
