Waste Products

In FY 2018/3, the amount of waste we generated (both of industrial and non-industrial waste) was approximately 43,000 tons, a year-on-year increase of 65%. This dramatic increase is due to the increase of construction waste compared to the previous fiscal year. NEC Group also continues to implement company-wide initiatives to achieve zero emissions. To ensure increased thoroughness in processing waste, NEC performs regular site inspections at plants where waste processing is outsourced, and offers advice to boost recycling levels.

Sorting and Collecting Trash

Activities for Sorting and Collecting Trash

Rules for sorting trash differ from one local government to another. NEC is thorough in providing training on sorting trash in new employee training when new employees are assigned to business operations to ensure trash is collected appropriately. Posters explaining the rules for sorting trash in an easy-to-understand manner are posted in trash collection stations so that each employee can sort trash properly.
