Effective Utilization of Resources and Reduction of Waste

We continueto strive to reduce waste in every area of the workplace, from the factory floor to offices and employee cafeterias, and to improve recycling so as to help create a recycling-based society.

To contribute to the creation of a recycling-based society, the CITIZEN Group has implemented measures to achieve zero waste emissions through recycling, as well as reducing the amount of waste. In FY2016, the Group reached a 99% recycling rate, with 24locations reporting zero waste.
