Green Buildings Help Create a More Sustainable World for Everyone!
Passers-by of Kyocera's manufacturing facilities may assume it is just for decoration, however these "green curtains," plants covering the walls outside of the buildings, provide shade for the rooms inside and lower the building temperature. The use of green curtains provides an average temperature reduction of 2℃ at Kyocera's facilities to help reduce the use of air-conditioning systems.
Additionally, during the summertime Kyocera employees enjoy healthy dishes with vegetables harvested from the green curtains. The green curtain gourds can be cooked as tempura and enjoyed with a delicious bowl of udon noodles. As another added benefit, eating nutrient-rich bitter gourd also helps to prevent fatigue in the hot summer months!
