Challenge to realization of a sustainable society

While economic development and technological innovation will make the modern society materially rich and convenient, the sustainability, that is essential for us to survive abundantly due to the impact of climate change caused by global warming and due to the limitation of reserves of material resources, is continuously becoming ever worse.
The Envipro Group believes that solving these social issues can be achieved by creating a resource circulation society, a decarbonizing society, and a society where each person of us can live and work actively and we formulated the "Sustainability Strategy", which is a strategy to synchronize our corporate sustainability with a social sustainability.
