Ensure Environmental Conservation and the Optimal Supply of Resources and Energy

 We promote efficient energy use, the introduction of renewable energies and new energy sources, and the creation of next- generation energy and social systems integrating all these efforts. We also pursue recycling to reduce the burden on the environment and build a recycling-oriented society.
Building a recycling-oriented society
 Our goal is to build a recycling-oriented society with low environmental impact. To this end, we effectively utilize “urban mines,” which are useful resources hidden in cities—primarily used small home appliances—while actively pursuing the 3R policy (Reduce waste generation, Reuse, and Recycle) and properly implementing individual recycling laws.
Realizing a low-carbon society and creating next-generation energy and social systems
 While promoting energy conservation and the Chubu region- created CO2 credit under the J-Credit Scheme, we are also engaging in efforts to achieve an optimal energy mix such as introducing renewable energies including solar power, wind power, and biomass; building a hydrogen society; and encouraging the local consumption of locally produced energies, capitalizing on regional characteristics.
