Introduction of hybrid cars

We have actively introduced low-pollution vehicles such as hybrid cars. We accelerated further in FY 2017, the introduction ratio exceeded 80% with 451 of 563 vehicles becoming hybrid cars. In the future we will work on introducing more eco-cars such as EV introduction in mind.

Laws, regulations, and requirements applicable to our business activities, products, and services are identified. Regarding applicable management standards of special facilities, we have set and aim to comply with in-house voluntary standards that are stricter than regulatory standards.

We are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including the Wastes Disposal and Public Cleansing Act, Noise Regulation Act, Sewerage Service Act, Private Sewerage System Act, PCB Waste Management Special Measures Act, CFC Recovery and Destruction Act, Automobile NOx PM Control Law, the Energy-saving Act's specified shipper provisions, the Containers/Packaging Recycling Act, and ordinances ordained by municipalities.
Our record is free of lawsuits and violations related to the environment.

Our entire workforce's commitment to continuous improvement based on a clear understanding of Yamazen's effects on the environment in our capacity as a specialized trade company is crucial to implementing environmental management. This depends critically on the “implementation of environmental education and enlightenment activities” for all personnel. Various measures are in action, raising the banner of enlightened environmental policies.

Environmental education system
Spreading the same level of awareness across our entire workforce entails from the beginning “general training” for new employees. We have also established and carry out an education system that includes “specialist training” and “internal auditor training” for personnel engaged in significant environmental aspects. The curriculum for specialist training is devised by eco-office, eco-business, eco-logistics, and other special committees. Each department then engages in systematically their raising expertise and abilities.

Environmental education tools
All employees receive a copy of the “EMS Pocketbook”, enabling quick comprehension of the environmental management system and understanding of the details of environmental activities carried out by the company, company departments, and individuals. Yamazen's web publication “Breakthrough” (our in-house newsletter) and the “Environment and CSR” website, both found on our intra-net, host up-to-date information concerning in-house environmental activities and societal trends regarding the environment, thus contributing to awareness-raising activities.
