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.

In FY 2020, while the COVID-19 pandemic made it difficult to provide education in the conventional way, we worked on group education with infection control measures in place and education using remote systems. Eighty-eight employees participated in the educational programs provided by the head office, bringing the total number of participants to 4,939 to date. In addition, the sites in and outside Japan conduct their ingenious environmental education programs and awareness activities.

Environmental Information Delivery

The Corporate Environmental Administration Department at the head office operates its intranet website called "eco-town" that delivers wide-ranging environmental information including laws and regulations, progress toward the SII Group's environmental goals, and environmental activities carried out at each site.
