Social contributions and environmental conservation

Environmental policies

IRISO Electronics Co. Ltd.’s head office, Manufacturing Technology Center and Ibaraki Plant will build an environmental management system for business activities and products/services associated with the production of connectors and pins (the company's major products). We will also promote environmental conservation activities as follows:

  • Iriso will strive to prevent environmental pollution, and periodically review the objectives and goals of environmental activities such as energy conservation and waste countermeasures. At the same time, the company will work to continuously improve its environmental management system.
  • Iriso will comply with environment-related laws and regulations as well as other requirements to which we have agreed.
  • Iriso will carry out education on environmental conservation activities, and will strive to promote the understanding and awareness of everyone who works at and for our company.

CSR activities

Three-Star Business activities

In FY 2005, the city of Yokohama established a program to certify large-scale businesses that carry out outstanding waste separation and recycling activities as Three Star businesses. Iriso received this certification in FY 2009. Our efforts for thorough separation of wastes were highly received by Yokohama city, which includes labeling on waste separation bins that describes precautions for disposal, as well as the confirmation of waste separation led by the in-house Environmental Promotion Committee. We will continue to make companywide concerted efforts to separate and reduce wastes.

●Criteria for certification as a Three-Star Business

  1. Categories for items to be separated are appropriate.
  2. Wastes are thoroughly separated.
  3. All recyclable items are recycled.

Eco-cap and PET bottle collection movement

We recycle PET caps through the Ecocap Movement, a NPO. If incinerated as waste, 800 caps would generate 6,300 grams of carbon dioxide. If recycled, however, those 800 caps earn enough money to purchase a vaccine for a child in a developing nation.

Pull-top collection movement

The pull-top collection movement began as one employee learned about a program where a wheelchair is donated from the proceeds of recycling 800 kg of empty can pull-tops. Collecting enough weight of pull-tops, with each weighing less than 1 gram, is a major chore. However, we will continue this program with the aim of recycling precious resources as well as the wish to contribute to those in need of wheelchairs.

Used stamp collection movement

Volunteer employees collect used stamps in offices and at their homes, and donate them to groups that support medical activities abroad and other organizations. The stamps collected are cashed in by domestic collectors, and are used to help healthcare in underdeveloped nations.

Calendar donation movement

Employees at the head office and Ibaraki Plant deliver calendars to people who live in nursing care facilities within the community as an incentive to further interaction with nursing home residents.

Monetary donation movement

With a strong recognition that we are a member of the global society, we provide disaster relief donations to victims of disasters that occur in all parts of the world. Those donations are coordinated through the Japanese Red Cross Society and the Japan Committee for UNICEF.

Community activities

We aim to become a corporation supported by the community through the implementation of cleaning operations around our head office and supporting local events such as the Shinyokohama Performance festival.

Family Tours

We began family tours with the goal of giving members of employees’ families a deeper understanding of our company. We provide easy-to-understand explanations specifically for small children in a way to promote interest in the company, so that they can learn what sort of place their fathers and mothers work and what sort of work they do. The company's president himself even dresses up as Santa Clause and hands out Christmas presents in an effort to stimulate interaction. Children who took part in the event sent in comments such as “I was very happy to see where my father and mother worked.”
