Resource Saving and Recycle

Social Background

Under the social system of mass production, mass consumption and mass disposal, we have lived a convenient and affluent life surrounded by many things. On the other hand, it consumes a large amount of the earth's limited resources and energy, and generates a large amount of waste. It faces various problems such as depletion of natural resources and destruction of the environment. At present, there are global calls for a shift from a society based on mass production, mass consumption and mass disposal to a recycling-oriented society. Companies are also required to make efficient use of resources and further promote the 3Rs, taking into account the entire product life cycle from raw material procurement to disposal.

NOKʼs Policy

The NOK Group is promoting 3R (Reuse, Reduce and Recycle) activities to realize a recycling-oriented society. We will strive to contribute to a sustainable society and enhance corporate value by reducing and recycling waste generated through the efficient use of resources such as raw materials, water and energy throughout the product life cycle and by improving each process.

3-Year Targets (FY2020 to FY2022)

Recycling rate: 98% or higher
* Recycling rate = (1-Amount of waste in landfills/Total amount of waste generated) x 100
