Environmental Management Survey
Environmental Management Survey Results
We were ranked 38th in the "2016 Environmental Management Survey" organized by the Nihon Keizai Shimbun. Aiming at comprehensively evaluating corporate environmental measures, this survey attributes an Environmental Management Score based on the results of the survey for each company. Nihon Keizai Shimbun then publishes the ranking in its newspaper. Our ranking has risen thanks to the positive evaluation we received in the categories "Global Warming Mitigation Measures" and "Environmental Management Promotion System".
