(1) Introduction of Products That Reduce the Environmental Impact
Sensors and lights handled by the Group are eco-friendly products with low energy consumption, such as those that are activated only when people or objects are detected and those that activate systems only when necessary.
In addition, based on its business strategies, the Group proactively introduces products that reduce the environmental impact (introduction of LED lighting, battery operation of devices, etc.) and energy-saving products that are highly advantageous to customers.
(2) Green Procurement
We have established a rule of not using, in any component of our products, lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE), which are the six hazardous substances restricted by the European Union’s RoHS Directive, and the four phthalates that have been newly added to the list of restricted substances for enforcement in July 2019. We also comply with the revised WEEE Directive concerning the disposal of hazardous substances in electric and electronic equipment.
In addition to the above, each company of the Group has defined environmental policies and is making company-wide efforts for the mitigation of the environmental burden and the protection of the environment based on the recognition that the preservation of the global environment is an important issue.
