Ecological Balance

Each year we numerically determine the environmental load of the entire USHIO Group, and use these figures to reduce environmental load, and also check the effectiveness of environmental management. Load information for each site is constantly tabulated and monitored using ECO-SYS (Environmental Management Information System), and this aids reduction of loads through real-time collaboration with each site. Going forward, the Group is working to better understand environmental burden not only in terms of business activities, but also from a carbon management perspective.
