In accordance with our corporate vision and corporate environmental policy, the Nitto Group promotes environmental management by reducing the environmental impact associated with our business activities. Through innovative business development, we aim to conserve the environment both regionally and globally by developing and supplying sustainable products.
The Nitto Group evaluates the level of a product's environmental impact under two performance axes, "is the product useful for solving global environmental issues" and "does the product utilize materials efficiently through its life cycle." This determines whether or not a product is approved as "low environmental impact" or has a "positive environmental impact."
|A. Low Environmental Impact Products||A-1||Products that do not contain any prohibited substances specified by customer request, legal regulations, or in the Group Regulations on Voluntary Management of Chemicals, or products whose contents of substances specified for reduction by customer request, legal regulations, or in the Group Regulations on Voluntary Management of Chemicals have been reduced.|
|A-2||Products that not only have lower environmental impact (e.g., energy consumption, industrial waste reduction) during any process from collection of raw materials to the Group processes (manufacturing, disposal, and logistics), but also have a lower total environmental impact from collection of raw materials to Group production processes, in comparison with other Group products or competing products.|
|B. Positive Environmental Impact Products||B-1||Products that not only have a lower environmental impact during any customer process from use to disposal, but also a lower total environmental impact from use to disposal by the customer, in comparison with other Group products, competing products, or conventional technologies.|
|B-2||Products that help resolve global environmental issues. This subcategory also applies to products whose total environmental impact generated over their life cycle, from collection of raw materials to manufacturing to disposal, has a positive effect on the global environment according to the Life Cycle Assessment or another assessment method.|
