First and foremost, allow us to express our deepest sympathy to all those affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake. We also wish to communicate our sincere gratitude to those involved in recovery efforts in the disaster-affected areas following the earthquake. All of us at Nippon Signal pray for the safety of everyone and a swift recovery from the disaster.
Toward an age where all corporate entities strive for concrete action...
A new Strategic Plan for Biodiversity, including the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, was adopted at COP10, the 10th Convention on Biological Diversity held in Nagoya in October 2010. With recognition that nature is not a free and limitless resource, "pay as you go," the international economic assessment of biodiversity, is gaining global popularity. The UN declared 2010 the International Year of Biodiversity, and has named 2011 as the International Year of Forests, elevating awareness of the importance of sustainable management and preservation of the world's forests.
Against this backdrop, we have arrived at the pivotal point at which all corporate entities strive for concrete actions, the key being how much we can achieve, and how quickly, in terms of globally-oriented goals. The existence of a sustainable company fully depends on the ability to anticipate social changes over the coming decade.
Nippon Signal aims to pursue sustainable growth as a corporate entity while striving to realize a society of prosperous lifestyles in harmony with the earth's environment. Promoting environmental management per Vision-2020 3E, the long-term management plan illustrating our desired image of Nippon Signal in 2020, we target three initiatives for corporate action that reflect the "Environment" perspective of 21st century management.
Nippon Signal continues to deliver environmentally-friendly products and services while complying with relevant laws, contributing to society, and satisfying our customers and other stakeholders through Group-wide expansion of environmental activities.
