    We have obtained the globally recognized Forest Stewardship Council Chain of Custody and forest management certification as a part of our efforts to achieve a sustainable society.

    As a company that handles paper, we have obtained the internationally recognized FSC forest management certification and the FSC CoC certification (FSC-C 021088) for our distribution process in an effort to be mindful of how we use raw materials from an environmental perspective. The lumber that is the raw materials for the paper our company handles is guaranteed not to be obtained through destructive logging, but through responsible forest management. We will continue to contribute to a sustainable society.

    We have obtained ISO14001 certification and are working to enhance internal environmental management.

    In March 2006, we obtained company-wide ISO14001 certification, an international environmental management standard, and we continue working to enhance internal environmental management measures.

We then quickly incorporate this into our environmental management system.
