Coexistence with Nature

Modern society is maintained by receiving a variety of ecosystem “services” from nature, including circulation and regeneration of materials in the atmosphere, water, and soil. The Tsubaki Group contributes to the protection of the ecosystem by reducing our environmental impact through our manufacturing and products that are in harmony with the global environment. We are also reducing the use of hazardous chemical substances in our production activities to reduce the risk that such substances pose to the natural environment. Furthermore, we are striving to improve the environment and conserve the ecosystem by directly cooperating with the environmental conservation activities taking place all around us in our day-to-day business.
