Environmental Improvement Activities

ISO 14001 Certification
With the belief that the acquisition of ISO 14001 certification would be effective as an environmental conservation effort, Furukawa Sangyo worked to obtain this certification.

Certification was obtained in May 2004 for a total of 6 sites: the Head Office, Kansai, Chubu, Kita Kanto and Chugoku branches and the Gunma Sales Office, in December 2007 the Hokkaido, Touhoku, Hokuriku, Shikoku and Kyusyu branches and the Himeji, Matsumoto and Kita-kyusyu Sales Office respectively.

We will make more effort in order to obtain the certification for the rest of all our offices until 2008.

Eco Office Activities
Each employee is aware that we carry out our business activities by utilizing limited natural resources. They carry out, in their daily activities, efforts to lower energy and natural resource use as well as reduce the amount of wastes created.

The use of unnecessary power is reduced by guiding employees to turn lights out during lunch breaks as well as in the use of OA and other equipment. Furthermore, we are involved in efforts to reduce the amount of OA paper used by promoting the use of electronic media, reviewing how internal reference materials are used, etc.

Green Purchasing
We promote "green" purchasing of general-purpose items such as office supplies. We practice making purchases only after full consideration of their necessities, and prioritize the purchasing of products that have as little impact on the environment as possible.
Sale of Products Harmonious with the Environment
We recognize the 21st century as being the century of the environment, and we work with customers to sell products that are environmentally friendly.
Activities at Affiliated Companies
We promote environmental conservation activities at affiliated companies as part of the Furukawa Electric Group. We strive to contribute to the lowering of environmental groups and well as the enhancement of recognition of our activities by society.
