Fukoku is Serious about Environmental Conservation

Our corporate color symbolizes sky blue, marine blue, and our blue planet

Fukoku's corporate color represents sky blue, marine blue, and the blue planet of earth. In order to engage proactively in global environmental conservation, Fukoku strives to carefully consider green practices in the materials development and product planning stages by designing materials that can be reused and materials that have little impact on the environment, for example. Fukoku is constantly striving to be a green company by routinely recycling waste products.

Constant awareness of environmental conservation

Fukoku is doing its part to lessen environmental impact by making products lighter and longer lasting. We are working to produce environment-friendly and people-friendly products such as rubber products for reducing noise and vibrations, automotive products for meeting emission standards, and industrial machinery that does not damage the pavement surface. In addition to meeting customer requirements and complying with national regulations, the entire company sought certification to ISO 14001, the strict international environmental management standard, as a way of keeping our word to give full consideration to the environment throughout the manufacturing process. We received certification for ISO 14001 in 2005, certifying our products and manufacturing environment internationally.

Zero emission is the ultimate goal!

Fukoku wants to minimize its environmental impact from business activities. We have established company policies stipulating that non-toxic materials are to be developed during the product design stage, encouraging recycling, and attempting to reuse rubber waste produced during the manufacturing process as an underlying buffer for paths in public parks. We will carry out environmental management activities to enforce these policies with the ultimate goal of achieving a zero-emission state in which no waste products are produced. Fukoku is proactively working on creating a system aimed at “reducing, reusing, and recycling” to eliminate substances that impact the environment.
