Aiming to be an Environmentally Friendly Plant

Since the start of operations in 2001, the Shilong Plant has been doing its best to produce multifunctional products (MFPs) and printers and conduct manufacturing that is trusted and chosen by customers. In particular, we are continuously growing as a plant that creates products based on the ECOSYS concept, which satisfies both ecology (a reduction of environmental impact) and economy (a provision of economic merits).

In addition, true to our aim of creating an environmentally friendly plant, we are actively engaged in environmental preservation activities. Our energy-saving activities include the ongoing replacement of approximately 80% of all lighting fixtures with LED lights and shifting from equipments with poor power efficiency to the latest energy-saving ones. We are also maintaining cleaner conditions by setting a target for plant effluent and exhaust that is better than the local emissions standard; this is in order to minimize environmental impact. We also treat water used in our production processes and recycle it as domestic water for use in the plant.

We practice waste-free management in every corner of the plant by thoroughly maintaining employees' awareness of reuse and recycling, thereby ensuring the elimination of waste.

For plant operations, we emphasize the welfare of employees and promote the operation of the plant as a single organization, like a family, through various recreational activities and plant events. The Shilong Plant has also been recognized as an excellent corporation in relation to the operation of the employees' cafeteria. We continue to improve the food services in our facility in order to offer employees safe and healthy foods.

In the field of social contribution, we are expanding the operations of the "Kyocera Class", which is designed to teach the skills and know-how of the company to students in cooperation with vocational schools. This endeavor is intended to promote further development of human resources by providing a greater number of children with a valuable opportunity to avail themselves of practical education.
