There are also CO2 which discharge through greenhouse effect gas and commodity distribution, not only by manufacturing process. In each business places, we consult to reduce all over greenhouse effect gas discharged through business activity by fixing reduction aims.
Sales emission increased due to sales decrease by banking crisis of 2008. Also from 2008, new domestic company, COPAL YAMADA has joined the COPAL GROUP and added to counting object of environmental load material.
