Sysmex Group Establishes Long-Term Environmental Objectives
- Aiming to Remain a Company That Instills Confidence in All People -
Sysmex Corporation (HQ: Kobe, Japan; President: Hisashi Ietsugu) has established groupwide long-term environmental objectives that it aims to reach by the end of fiscal 2020, ending March 31, 2021. These objectives are centered on themes that are important to society, such as global warming countermeasures, effective use of resources and waste reduction, and effective use of water resources, and the Sysmex Group is promoting activities designed toward these goals.
The Sysmex Group has always been a strong believer in corporate efforts to preserve the local environment and has been proactive in its conservation efforts. As part of this ongoing commitment, in May 2009 the Company reviewed the existing Environmental Policy with an eye toward reducing the environmental impact of each stage of its product life cycle, from product design, production and sales to use and disposal.
Ramping up its environmental conservation activities even further, Sysmex established long-term environmental objectives to be achieved by fiscal 2020. These targets call for the Group to conserve energy and resources and reduce waste by promoting eco-friendly service models (such as SNCS*1, its proprietary network-based support service), developing eco-friendly products and raising the efficiency of its business activities.
Through such efforts, going forward the Sysmex Group will continue aiming to achieve harmony with the global environment, putting its corporate philosophy, the Sysmex Way into practice.
