Health and protecting the global environment are a common desire of people throughout the world. To embody our core management principle of “Realising our wishes for the well-being of both mankind and Earth“, we have made integrating our business activities with global environment preservation one of our highest operating primacies.
By using the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System, Shimadzu has worked to reduce our environmental impact and prevent pollution, such as by reducing company-wide CO2 emissions, reducing and reusing waste, appropriately controlling chemical substances, and protecting biodiversity. The new head office building completed in June 2014, incorporates various features to save energy, such as automatically controlling windows to minimize the effects of direct sunlight and using natural air flow for the air conditioning system.
Shimadzu Environmental and Social Report
Shimadzu’s “Medium and Long-Term Programs,” will continue to reduce the burden on the environment due to business activities and contribute to creating a low-carbon future through our core business, the development of product.
Since global-scale efforts are necessary to deal with issues such as greenhouse gas emission, global warming and energy related issues; Shimadzu continues with our “Save the Energy Project”.
Its aim is to develop new products with high energy-saving potential that can consume at least 25% less power than former models resulting in reduced running costs as well as combating global warming.
