Sanwa Environmental Day

Since 2007, the Sanwa Group has held "Sanwa Environment Day" on June 10, in line with "Environment Month" (June), as designated by the Ministry of the Environment. We set this day to further promote the priorities of the Sanwa Group Environmental Policy - "Continuously work for the preservation and improvement of the environment" and "Endeavor to raise the awareness of environmental preservation of all people working for the Sanwa Group by ensuring they understand the Environmental Policy and by providing them with information about the environment."

Eco Activities

  • A PVC curtain helps to prevent
    cold air leak from refrigerator.
  • Morning glory seeds were planted
    to make green curtains.

To raise awareness of the environment, employees share their ideas for environment-friendly initiatives at the office and at home. Ideas are divided into "office" and "individual" categories, and are presented to the whole company to be shared among all employees.
