Since foundation of the company, based on the corporate motto “Respect the Divine and Love People,” the Kyocera Group has focused all corporate activities on three pillars of coexistence (Living Together): Coexisting with Our Community, Coexisting with Global Society, and Coexisting with Nature. The entire Kyocera Group is committed to environmental management and aims for sustainable corporate development while striving to combine the goals of ecology and economy. The Kyocera Group handles many chemical substances during production processes, such as raw materials and chemical agents for fine ceramics. Regarding treatment of waste water from factories, our policy is to purify discharged water to a state cleaner than the water system into which it is to be released.

It is Kyocera Group policy to render any industrial waste as harmless as possible by using the latest technology.

Based on this concept, the Kyocera Group enacted the “Kyocera Environmental Charter” in 1991, the company’s basic philosophy regarding the environment. Kyocera established its “Environment Vision 2020” in order to embody the Kyocera Environmental Charter and define the company’s stance on a long-term basis up to 2020. As a yearly goal to achieve this vision, Kyocera has formulated the “Kyocera Group Global Environmental Policy.”
