Environmental Education

Promotion of Environmental Education

Each employee's increased awareness and environmental practice is essential to promote environmental activities. The SII Group Environmental Policy clarifies that all employees seek to raise their environmental awareness and protect the environment in their personal lives.

SII has formulated environmental education programs in 1996 and has been performing enlightening activities in a continuous manner.
SII head office conducts a wide range of environmental programs in three categories: general education, special education, and training for internal qualification. The programs are reviewed every year based on a global trend and in-house needs. In addition, we send out questionnaires at the completion of the courses to improve the next programs.
