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 2013, 66 products were registered as Green Mind Products. The number of products registered during the period from fiscal 2010 to 2013 has totaled 286.

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.
