SDGs goals related to

  • 8. DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
  • 12. RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
  • 13. CLIMATE ACTION
  • 15. LIFE ON LAND

Our Group's business activities revolve around human resources, which means that we have a small impact on the consumption of natural resources and on the environment. In order to create a sustainable society, we source environmentally-friendly products for our business operations. By doing so, we further reduce our impact on the environment.

Theme Initiatives
Global warming Appropriate management of energy use

We monitor the two CO2 emissions below and endeavor to have our energy use optimally adapted to the scale of our businesses.

  • CO2 emitted from electricity use in the office
  • CO2 emitted from gasoline use
Modal shift

By reducing the number of company cars and distance covered for sales and recruitment activities, we strive to use trains*1 and other public transportation that produce lower carbon emissions. We further reduce our CO2 emissions by controlling the amount of travel to the office by encouraging remote working and direct commuting.

Office performance

We contribute to the lowering of CO2 emissions by making selections based on environmental performance at our headquarters located in the big cities and other large-scale offices.

Forest preservation Using environmentally-friendly products

We contribute to environmental preservation by purchasing FSC-certified*2 paper, reducing the purchase of plastic items, and taking environmental impacts into account when selecting printer ink and printing paper.

Environmental protection Reducing the use of paper and recycling paper waste*3

By promoting DX, we reduce the amount of paper used per person in our business activities. We collect used paper generated in our offices, manage information related to waste, and process our own paper waste. Our paper waste serves as the main material for pulp that is turned into recycled paper. This recycled paper will be used to create promotional materials such as name cards and calendars. By doing so, we reduce waste and reuse precious resources.

  • Used paper collected in 2020: Approximately 5t

*Moving forward, we will reduce the use of paper, collect 10t of used paper every year (management of information related to waste), and record the rate of paper recycling. These data will be made publicly available.

*1 Carbon emissions from trains are said to be one-eighth of that from cars.

*2 FSC is an international certification system dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world's forests.

*3 The paper recycling activities at Our Group are carried out by our employees with disabilities. The artificial flowers that decorate our offices are also recycled in an environmentally-friendly manner.
