Environment Business Policy

As a company that provides markets with filtering materials used in environmental purification applications, the NBC Meshtec Group understands our implicit obligation to participate in environmental protection activities and to hold ourselves to high standards. Today, amid calls for worldwide environmental protection based on a global perspective, we as responsible corporate citizens are deepening our commitment to addressing these issues. The global environment is mankind's most precious shared asset. We keep in mind at all times our duty to protect and pass on the natural environment to the generations to come. To guide us in fulfilling this duty, we have established both an Environmental Philosophy and Action Guidelines based on the company creed, "The basis of business is built on trust," and a corporate philosophy that emphasizes social contributions. Each and every employee will make positive contributions in accordance with the guidelines specified below to resolve the various environmental issues that may arise during the company's operations.

Environmental Policy

Protecting the global environment is a challenge confronting all of society. Environmental threats pose risks for human survival and development. As a corporate citizen and member of society operating as a business, we understand that protecting the environment is an important challenge, one we must confront. "Providing a clean, friendly, safe environment for both people and nature": This is our slogan, and providing various materials that help protect the environment, including filter materials, is our specific way of contributing to efforts to protect the environment and mitigate climate change.

NBC Meshtec Spring Water Protection Club

A group of fresh-water springs in the west and the north of NBC headquarters (Hino, Tokyo) (called were "Fresh-water springs around the Hino Central Library ") included among the "Top 57 springs in Tokyo" in January 2003. The springs produce approximately 14.5 liters/s at a rate of 23.3 ms/m. The average water temperature is 17.3° C, and the temperature does not fluctuate significantly. The springs abound with nature: they are the habitat of river crabs and conches named "kawanina", which can live only in a clear stream. During the summer, fireflies, which are very rare in Tokyo these days, can be seen.

Since the company's foundation, we have been working in the rich natural surroundings of Musashino, a suburb of Tokyo. To protect the natural sanctuary that our ancestors conserved, we have formed the "NBC Spring Water Protection Club." In cooperation with the people of the community, we help to clean the springs and streams.
