Promotion of Environmental Education
Each employee's increased awareness and environmental practice is essential to promote environmental activities. The Environmental Policy clarifies that we raise the environmental awareness of our employees, and all of us will work together on environmental activities.
Since 1996, SII has formulated environmental education programs and has been performing environmental education and awareness activities by in-house instructors.
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.

While it was difficult to provide face-to-face group training due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as in the previous year, we worked on training using a remote system, and 242 employees (5,355 in total) participated in the training hosted by the head office. In addition, each of our sites in Japan and the world is implementing creative environmental education and awareness-raising activities.
In addition to this in-house training, we also encourage employees to take outside training courses for work that requires qualified personnel to ensure compliance with the law.
Environmental Information Delivery
The Environmental Division 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.
