Approaches to Environmental Issues

We are promoting waste reduction and recycling to reduce environmental impact.

We are also promoting the shift to gas boilers, the introduction of equipment with low power consumption, and the use of LED lighting.
In consideration of our neighbors, we are actively installing deodorizing equipment and soundproof walls to prevent odors and noise.
