What is a Green Curtain? Green Curtains in the Kyocera Group Grow your own Green Curtain

The Kyocera Group carries out “Green Curtain” activities, which grow goya (bitter gourd) and morning glory on external walls of factory and office buildings as part of summer energy-saving activities. The Green Curtain is designed to absorb CO2 with the plant’s photosynthesizing capability and prevent strong summer sunlight from entering indoors through the windows which in turn helps reduce air-conditioning loads.
In FY2008, the Green Curtain program was started at Kyocera Nagao Okaya Plant. Green Curtains are now saving energy consumption at over 25 sites in the Kyocera Group.
