CO2 Reduction and Light-Down Campaign (Organized by The Ministry of The Environment)
Since 2003, the Ministry of the Environment had conducted this campaign, which calls for turning out lights in facilities to prevent global warming. Participating since 2008, our company has set the summer solstice and the Star Festival and Cool Earth Day as special days for the campaign, and has requested cooperation in the conservation of electricity not only from the areas of our business but also from offices and shops. We work to turn off lights in all of our facilities, and make the campaign an opportunity to think about global warming.
