Wallcoverings that care for the environment
Fuji Kogyo Co., Ltd. aspires to become a company that cares about and contributes to the restoration of the environment by setting such policies in all business activities. Our company acquired the Eco-Action 21 certification and registration in December 2005 at our Fukui City factory and headquarters. In searching for environmental activities that would support quality living, Fuji Kogyo has found the answers in its very own products.
* Scope of activities for certification and registration: Wallcoveringｓ (materials) manufacturing, processing and sales
What is Eco-Action 21 certification and registration system? (Excerpt from Eco-Action 21 website)
Eco-Action 21 certification and registration system is especially tailored for small and medium corporations (SMCs). It is based on the Eco-Action 21 guidelines set by the Ministry of Environment as the measures “to enable corporations to adopt effective and efficient systems to promote environmental activities, to establish objectives of environmental activities, and to compose, evaluate and report the results of these activities.”
* Eco-Action 21 guidelines were established by the Ministry of Environment, while the certification and registration are implemented by Institute for Promoting Sustainable Societies (IPSuS).
