Glory continuously strives to preserve the Earth’s environment and reduce environmental impact by reducing CO2 emissions, managing chemical substances, and effectively using resources.
"Mitigation of Global Warming" has been established as a theme of the Glory Environmental Vision, and we are working to cut emissions of CO2.
Under this part of the vision, we have adopted highly efficient production equipment to cut CO2 emissions. We have also been installing power monitoring systems (demand monitoring functions), LED lighting, and human detection sensors at our business sites while setting up a solar power system on the roof of the head office for the use of renewable energy sources.
Furthermore, we are promoting a modal shift by switching transport from trucks to railways and ships as a means of improving shipping efficiency with lighter weight packing materials in order to reduce the burden on the environment.

We thoroughly manage the chemical substances used in production and are making progress in switching to chemical substances with a low impact on human health. The factories manage and issue semi-annual reports about the amount of chemical substances they use. Factory employees who use chemical substances, including those subject to the Law concerning Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR Law), are trained in chemical substance handling. Safety data sheets (SDS) containing chemical substance safety data are always on hand so employees can, as necessary, confirm precautions when handling these substances as well as response procedures for emergencies.
Glory is engaged in 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) efforts to contribute to creating a recycling-oriented society.
In order to use resources more effectively, we are improving our production processes, raising parts manufacturing yields, and reducing the number of manufacturing trials to cut down on the volume of materials used. In addition, our factories and offices are going paperless, returnable containers are being used for deliveries from suppliers, and efforts are being made to reduce the volume of packing material. Also, we are reusing cushioning materials used for intra-Group parts shipping. Wastes are thoroughly separated when we dispose of them in order to increase recycling rates. Moreover, we have established a recycling rate of 99.5% as our zero emissions target and intend to achieve it at our production sites.
