環境への取り組み

The Yokohama Factory of Taiyo Yushi makes efforts to reduce CO2 emissions through the introduction of a cogeneration system using natural gas and the establishment of a solar photovoltaic system and to manufacture environmentally friendly products in terms of ingredients, production processes and containers. Furthermore, it acquired EcoAction 21 certification to contribute to the realization of a sustainable economic society.


EcoAction 21
Certification/registration number: 0003575

■Acquisition of EcoAction 21 Certification

[Certification/registration completed in March 2009]

Building a sustainable society requires that environmental initiatives be actively carried out by a full spectrum of socioeconomic actors. For their part, institutions must take an environmentally conscious approach to all of their products, services and business activities - striving for energy efficiency, conservation of all natural resources, waste reduction and the like.
The EcoAction 21 guidelines were created to support all institutions - whether corporations, schools or public agencies - in carrying out environmental initiatives efficiently and effectively. They provide methods for setting up, operating and maintaining environmental management systems to set environmental targets, carry out initiatives, and evaluate the results. They also offer methods for communicating with society about environmental issues.
The overall aim of the EcoAction 21 guidelines and certification/registration program is to encourage institutions to carry out environmental initiatives, thereby contributing to the achievement of a sustainable economy and society.

■Introduction of a Cogeneration System

What is a cogeneration system?

Cogeneration is the use of energy obtained through burning fuel to simultaneously generate more than one form of energy, e.g., electricity and hot water. It has extremely high thermal efficiency and therefore a smaller burden on the environment. Taiyo Yushi adopted natural gas as the fuel for the system, because it can realize low NOx combustion.

■Introduction of a Solar Photovoltaic System

Taiyo Yushi has introduced a solar photovoltaic system, which converts abundant solar radiation into electricity and therefore generates no CO2, NOx and SOx - which cause global warming and acid rain - at the time of power generation.

■Positive Commercialization of Refills

We are making efforts to commercialize refills to reduce plastic containers (which are difficult to dispose of) and devote ourselves to advocating environmental and resource conservation.
