Basic Concept

The IDEC Group including domestic and overseas companies, has proceeded the initiatives for recycling industrial wastes for accomplishing one of the environmental targets "Reduction in industrial wastes by 24% (compared to the level in FY2020) established in the medium-term management plan.

Initiatives for Recycling

Expand use of eco-friendly materials to product packaging materials

As a review of product packaging materials, we began to use bubble wrap made of film containing 25% or more biomass plastics at two bases in Japan in December 2021.

Initiaitives for non-use of plastic bottles

In 2019, we have started the campaigns to stop selling plastic bottled beverages in vending machines at its major bases and encourages employees to use their own bottles and bring back plastic bottle taken from outside of the head office. Currently, the initiative has been prevailed not only to head office, but also major business bases.

Before "no plastic bottle challenge", approximately 60,000 plastic bottles were consumed at the head office. Only beverages of cans, glass bottles, and paper containers are sold now, and we realized the zero consumption of plastic bottles.

IDEC also participates in the "Plastic Smart" campaign promoted by the Ministry of the Environment and displays posters to raise awareness of the issue of marine plastic waste.
