Reduction of Environmental Impact of Business Activities
Through our experience and know-how we are positioned to promote energy and resource conservation.
Energy prices are soaring from the expansion of demand worldwide. Japanese are all too familiar with the problems of maintaining a safe and reliable power supply system.
With this in mind, the Semiconductor & Storage Products Company Group proactively promotes cross-departmental energy and resource conservation activities utilizing its collective experience and know-how.
For example, our clean rooms and waste heat recovery systems on our semiconductor manufacturing lines conserve energy and promote efficiency. Our “MOTTAINAI” (in Japanese, “too good to waste”) policy and 3R (reduce, reuse and recycle) efforts at all worksites prevent valuable resource waste.
We are also committed to biodiversity preservation around our plants, both in and out of Japan with activities for employees that raise awareness of biodiversity spotlighted at the Convention on Biological Diversity’s eleventh Conference of the Parties, COP11, held in India in October 2012.
Here we introduce our efforts toward promoting energy conservation through manipulating the dew point temperature in high pressure air facilities at our Yokkaichi Operations, and our cross-departmental 3R promotion activities at our Oita Operations with specific policies aimed at biodiversity preservation activities both in and out of Japan.
