VISIONMessage from the Managing Director
Since 2006, we have been providing consulting services on environment, health and safety, and sustainability to local and international companies, governmental organizations, and international organizations.
The 20th century was an era of thorough pursuit of material affluence, rationality and efficiency.
As a result, we are able to enjoy a rich and abundant life. However, on the other hand, social issues, such as increased environmental impacts due to emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, water pollution and massive waste-generation, and labor issues are caused not only in Japan but around the world.
Corporates, government agencies and all sectors share a common raison d'etre: contributing to the improvement of welfares and quality of life (QOL) of the humankind throughout the world.
In other words, we all need to take a long-term perspective, think about the future of humankind, and act accordingly. However, current response to environmental and social problems does not necessarily promise a bright future for our next generations. Also, the solutions to problems do not start with just idealistic visions. Our generation is tasked to select and implement realistic, most effective and sustainable options while building a long-term sustainability strategy within limited time.
The environmental and social issues are ever-changing. In response to the various challenges, we support our clients to minimize their environmental and societal impacts globally, while aligning their business vectors and improving their business value and well-being, as well as the measures implementation.
As a Japanese company with the global network, we experienced the superiority of Japan's environmental technology, on-site management and improvement capabilities and Japanese culture that we are proud to introduce to the world.
With our vision of "becoming a global environmental and social consulting company originating from Japan"", we do our utmost to support the smooth business development of domestic companies expanding overseas in line with the social demands for sustainability.
