    Education is implemented on laws, regulations, and bylaws relating to environmental conservation, as well as issues such as the handling of chemicals. In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022, we launched an e-learning environmental education program for all employees. Moreover, during Japan’s Environment Month each year, we invite employees to submit suggestions for an energy-saving awareness slogan and energy-saving proposals.
