Environmental Policy

NEOJAPAN ensures that its business activities have a significant impact on the environment. Positioning harmony between business activities and the environment as one of our management issues, we will strive to reduce the entire supply chain's environmental burden and contribute to creating a sustainable society.

1.Promoting environmentally- conscious business activities

In order to reduce the impact on the environment, we will set quantitative targets while continuously working on improving and reviewing them. We will also strive to save energy, resources, and to prevent pollution caused by waste throughout the supply chain.

2. Promoting environmental awareness activities

Through environmental education and environmental and social activities, we will raise our employees and collaborators' environmental awareness and contribute to global environmental conservation, including climate variability response and biodiversity conservation.

3. Compliance with environmental laws and regulations

We will comply with applicable laws and regulations regarding environmental aspects and other agreed matters in promoting our business activities.

4. Stakeholder communication

We will actively communicate with our stakeholders inside and outside the company, such as by disclosing environment-related information in our business activities to stakeholders.

Environmental goals

To reduce our business activities' environmental impact, we are working on setting goals that target the office environment, such as electricity, waste emissions, and paper purchases. Aiming towards a five year period from FY2020 to FY2025, we have set the following targets to work on our environmental activities.

Item Reduction target
Power usage Overall emissions will not increase based on FY2020, and per capita, paper usage will be reduced by 25% in the five years up to FY2025.
Waste discharge (paper usage) Overall paper usage will not increase based on FY2020, and per capita emissions will be reduced by 25% in the five years up to FY2025.

* As for waste emissions, we can only grasp the entire tenant building's quantity, therefore we have set a reduction target using our office paper usage as an alternative index to waste emissions.

Climate Change Initiatives

We believe that it is a corporate responsibility and an important management issue to transition to a carbon-free society and to mitigate climate variability- which poses a threat to humans and other organisms. We will contribute to these changes by reducing greenhouse gases by reducing our energy consumptions in our offices.

Air conditioning

  • Reducing the extensive use of air conditioning ⇒ Efforts to reduce usage by installing fans, etc. on each floor.

PC / OA equipment

  • Frequently turning off the power of unused PCs and office automation equipment. Turning off all PCs and OA equipment when leaving the office.
  • Set the screen saver to less than 10 minutes.
  • Recommend the energy saving mode setting for PC.
  • When turning off the power of the personal computer and the power of the PC display.

Achievement

CO2 emissions(㎏)
CO2 emissions per person(㎏)
