Environmental Management

Our Policy for Environmental Management
In recent years, global climate change events, such as global warming have become more serious and have had major impacts on people's lives and business activities.
To realize the "safe, secure, and sustainable society in which people can live comfortably" that NAGASE Group aims for, we believe that a sustainable global environment is a key factor. Most of the raw materials used in our products are produced by nature, and therefore it is important that we take initiative in addressing environmental issues in order to make our business sustainable.
We believe the "environment" is one of the most important global concerns, and as such, have put our focus on reducing environmental impact to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.
