We provide various products mainly for packaging materials, plastics resins and products, and electronic materials, not only for domestic businesses, but also for import and export. In performing these trading activities, we periodically evaluate the environmental impact, set and review environmental objectives, make continual improvements to the environmental management system, make efforts to prevent environmental pollution, and have established the five action guidelines concerning environmental preservation as follows.
