Initiatives to be environmentally conscious

Aiming to Be a Company Friendly to Both People and the Environment

We want to preserve, because...

Recently, the global environment is increasingly threatened and environmental issues are getting more attention worldwide. Against that background, environmental efforts from the global standpoint have come to constitute a mainstream movement, including the Kyoto Protocol for global warming prevention that entered into force in February, 2005. Now, such efforts are made not only by national and local governments, but also by private corporations. One example of the initiatives taken by corporations is environmental preservation activities, including acquisition of ISO14001 certification.

In response to the growing interest in environmental issues in the industry, Nidec-Shimpo received ISO14001 certification, and published our own Environmental Concept and Environmental Policy. In line with these, we strive to develop environmentally friendly products while participating in various environmental preservation activities.

In pursuit of business activities that are friendly to both people and the environment, we hope to contribute to the establishment of a society that thrives in harmony with nature into the future.

Your understanding and cooperation are highly appreciated.
