The Japanese government has set the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 60-80% from the current level, by 2050. This goal is part of its Low-Carbon Society Action Plan, adopted in 2008. Under this plan, the government is promoting the "School New Deal" initiative for installing solar power generating systems at schools nationwide. Kyocera solar power generating systems have been installed in many schools, with more than 1,200 systems installed as of March 2011. At more than 40% of the total, Kyocera holds the top share in the industry.

In addition to installation of solar power systems, Kyocera is presenting "Eco-Lessons" for school children. Actual solar cells and other materials are used in these hands-on classes to raise awareness of energy and environmental problems.

Kyocera will continue to provide highly reliable products, and at the same time contribute to enhancement of environmental education.
