Environmentally Friendly Products

Green Mind Products

We carry out environmental impact assessment on our products at the stages of planning, development, and design. The environmental impact of products is estimated over their whole lifecycle (from the procurement of materials, through manufacture, use to disposal) to improve their environmental performance. Moreover, the green product management committee examines the product assessment check sheets submitted by the business departments and registers products that meet the predefined criteria as "Green Mind Products." In fiscal 2012, 68 products were registered as Green Mind Products.

Green products

Under our Green Product certification system, which we have established to foster the development of more environmentally compatible products, we certify products that are even more environmentally friendly than Green Mind Products as Green Products. We label Green Products with the Green Project mark and approve the use of this mark according to the rules for ISO 14021 Type II environmental labeling.

Environmentally Friendly Products

Optical Fiver Unit

Ultra High-density Overhead Optical Fiber Cable

Product description Ultra High-density Overhead/Lead-up SM Optical Fiber Cable
Application Overhead FTTH optical fiber cable
Features Due to the ultra-high optical fiber density achieved by the use of intermittently-adhered four optical fibers, the cable is far smaller in diameter and lighter in weight than conventional products (with the outer diameter reduced by 29% and the weight by 52%, each at a maximum).

Electronics Unit

Flexible printed circuit

Product description Flexible printed circuit
Application Internal wiring for electronic devices
Features The substances contained exclude those prohibited by the RoHS Directive and are also halogen-free.

Automotive Unit


Product description High-voltage shield cable (ASiBS)
Application High-voltage wiring for electric and hybrid vehicles
Features This high-voltage shield cable has an outer diameter that is 10% thinner and 20% lighter than conventional products. It is also more heat-resistant due to the use of selected insulating and coating materials.

infrastructure Unit

eco cable

Product description Environmentally friendly electrical wire and cable, and lead-free electrical wire and cable
Application Used as industrial cable, communication cable, measuring cable, and coaxial cable
Features This environmentally friendly wire is made using non-halogen cable technologies, which is suitable for sorted recycling, and other wires and cables are lead-free and compliant with RoHS Directive.
