Environmental Efforts

Protecting the global environment
and wishing for the happiness of those who live there

Yuwa will create a rich life for the next generation, and wishes for a beautiful global environment and the happiness of people who continue to live there. We are actively working on beautifying the environment around the plant, including the efficient use of energy by using rainwater and heat shielding. We value the beautiful earth.

Solar power

In April 2013, Yuwa started the operation of a solar power plant. Komoro City decided to use the clean energy of sunlight as much as possible because of its high sunshine rate nationwide, so we decided to install it. 1204 solar panels are installed on about 70% of the roof of the factory, and the annual power generation is 309,136 kwh. It can generate enough electricity to cover 75 ordinary households.

All employees actively participate in regular beautification and cleaning activities at the Komoro Inter Industrial Park, such as mowing and picking up trash.

At Yuwa, young employees play a central role in establishing a committee to carry out various initiatives and activities. We will actively exchange opinions in committees such as employee awareness and reform, internal improvement, exchange meetings, and regularly hold study sessions and events.
Committee activities also play a role in establishing personal connections across departments.
