'Contribute to the environment through business'. We, Yamazen set 'dissemination of ecologically friendly products' in our environmental policy as a specialized trading company for production equipments & consumer goods. We refer products more beneficial to environment than the standard such as solar power generating system as ecologically friendly products. We are trying to establish manufacturing environment which is ecologically friendly and easy for the workers under the collaboration of manufacturers, professionals in manufacturing and the dealers, as well as comfortable and healthy living environment.

Production Equipment Division

The production equipment department develops environmental products, displays products in environmental exhibitions, and holds environmental seminars. It is actively engaged in providing solutions to companies engaged in environmental ISO and local neighborhood affiliations and in developing those markets.

Housing Equipment and Materials Division

Contributing to the environment by creating highly functional and comfortable homes

Creating 21st century eco-homes for a healthy environment

To comply with the “Next-generation Energy-saving Standard” and the “Quality Assurance Act”, we are hard at work on construction materials and methods needed for energy-saving housing design and highly airtight and adiathermanous homes as part of our eco-home creation solutions.

Creating healthy living spaces for healthy people

Our solutions also cover creating healthy living spaces, such as interiors, that use natural materials that accord with “living naturally with nature”, while also creating barrier-free housing.

Home Products Division

Environmental load reduction of packaging material

We are reducing Styrofoam used as packaging and cushioning material for our original products. We are also taking other environment-focused actions, such as using recycled cardboard and employing recycled paper in product manuals.

● Solar power generation systems

Solar power generation is a green system that generates power from the light emitted from the sun—an inexhaustible source of green energy. Such systems can be installed on various roof types, and excess power generated can be sold to power companies. Installations are expected to increase in the future with the support of facilitative subsidy programs.

Campaign for the environment

● The “Green Ball Project” engages in the exchange of eco-equipment CO2 reduction amounts for CERs. Small steps lead to big strides in eco-performance. banner
In FY2005, Yamazen began a campaign of buying from participating companies CO2 reductions, enabled by introducing eco-housing equipment, such as Eco cute, and solar power generation and energy-saving industrial equipment, such as factory compressors, hydraulic equipment, and factory air conditioning units. From 2008, we began as the fourth stage, the “Green Ball Project”, which incorporates a scheme of supplying C02 emission quotas.

Environmental Exhibitions

● Resonating with manufacturers and users

▪ In FY2009, exhibitions dedicated to the environment and accompanying seminars were held in Hamamatsu, Tokyo, and Fujishima, stimulating vigorous business discussions.
▪ Yamazen was also active in exhibiting ecologically friendly products in 12 international exhibitions in six countries, at public exhibitions such as the Mechanical Components and Materials Technology Expo (M-Tech) and the Shiga Environmental Business Exhibition, along with local private shows.
▪ Plans and exhibitions are also underway in FY2010.

Ecologically friendly product symbol

At Yamazen, we established the “ecologically friendly product symbol” for products that we specify as “ecologically friendly products”, and we are engaged in their distribution. These are products can exceed standards and benefit the environment by contributing or adapting to it. This symbol incorporates the Yamazen logo concept, which expresses the idea of a triumvirate consisting of manufacturer, distributor, and user, with the single aim of realizing a recycling society. e_p09
