Rather than engaging in dedicated environmental preservation activities, companies are now incorporating initiatives into their core business activities, for such advanced initiatives are being required by society. Here at the Kobe Steel Group, we continue to develop new products and technologies designed to reduce environmental impact, whilst also implementing environmental activities as part of our diverse range of business activities.
We also consider it to be our fundamental responsibility as a company to contribute to the local community. As such, we organize activities aimed at promoting interaction with local people and contributing to community development at all of our premises, both in Japan and overseas.
Our goal is to live in harmony with society and the Earth. That same desire underpins all of the Kobe Steel Group's environmental and social activities outlined in this report.
