Global Warming Prevention

Preventing global warming has been established as a theme of the GLORY Environmental Vision, and we are working to cut emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2).

For example, in addition to cutting CO2 emissions by installing efficient production equipment in our factories, we are also making progress in installing LED lighting and motion sensors in offices. We have also installed solar panels on the roof of the Head Office building as part of our active effort to use renewable energy.

Our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions in logistics include promoting a "modal shift" by switching from truck transport to rail. We are also optimizing shipping routes and using lighter packing materials.

Control and Reduction of Chemical Substances

We exert thorough controls on the chemical substances used in our production processes, and are making progress in switching to chemical substances with low impact on human health.

The factories manage and issue monthly reports about the amount of chemical substances they use. Factory employees who use chemical substances are trained in chemical substance handling.

Material safety data sheets (SDS) containing chemical substance safety data are also always on hand so employees can, when necessary, confirm precautions when handling these substances as well as procedures to take in an emergency.

Effective Use of Resources

GLORY is engaged in "3R" (reduce, reuse, recycle) efforts to contribute to creating a recycling-oriented society.

We are improving our production processes, raising parts manufacturing yields, and reducing the number of manufacturing trials to use resources more effectively and cut down on the volume of materials used. We are also making progress in going paperless at our offices.

We are using returnable containers for deliveries from suppliers and are reducing packing material volume. We are also reusing cushioning materials used for intra-Group parts shipping.

GLORY engages in thorough waste separation to recycle even more. We have established a recycling rate of 99.5% as our "zero emissions" target, and are aiming to achieve it at our production sites.
