We participate in the Environmental Action Plan (waste management) and the Follow-up Related to Management of Emissions of Organic Volatile Compounds (VOC) of Japan Paper Association to which we belong and promote reduction.
An example of collaboration with an external organization is as follows. Wastewater sludge generated from the business establishments of Oji Group companies around Shizuoka Prefecture is disposed of at a final disposal site (landfill disposal). The wastewater sludge is now used as a waste fuel for a thermal power plant of a paperboard company, which has a waste disposal license. This enables the paperboard company to obtain electricity and steam while reducing the landfill disposal volume of the Oji Group.
