  1. From the perspective of cutting carbon dioxide and effectively utilizing natural resources, we  work intensively to reduce the consumption of resources in our business activities, products and services. We positively expand and proceed with the FPCO Method Recycling business of recycling used food containers from general households into food containers for reuse.
  2. We fulfill the statutory requirements imposed on us. We understand stakeholders’ needs and expectations of us to formulate voluntary standards for implementation to prevent pollution.
  3. We establish environmental goals that take the environmental impact of our business activities, products and services into account, build an environmental management system to formulate and promote management plans, evaluate our success through internal audits and reviews by senior management, and undertake continual improvement. 
  4. We make efficient use of water to reduce the consumption of water resources.
  5. We prevent environmental risks that lead to the pollution of the natural environment with chemical substances and waste and to health hazards.
  6. We pursue initiatives that take biodiversity in to account and strive to conserve the environment. 
  7. We make these guidelines broadly known to employees and all stakeholders, and cultivate human resources who will take their own initiative in tackling environmental issues.

Environmental Management System Promotion Structure


In the FPCO Group, Environment Management Department, a dedicated environmental organization under the aegis of the President, promotes initiatives aimed at solving environmental issues including climate change, resource utilization, waste and water usage under the supervision of the director in charge.  In addition, the director in charge of the Environmental Action Office instructs related departments on improvements concerning environmental issues brought up for discussion at Corporate Management Committee (held monthly), and the Board of Directors supervises these processes. The Board of Directors also oversees the operational status of various policies on climate change, resource utilization, waste and water usage. 


Under FP Corporation Eco Action 2.0, the FPCO Group has established working groups (WGs) under the product, production, logistics, sales and office sectors. These WGs proactively set various goals and implement initiatives aimed at reducing the total CO2 emissions of the FPCO Group.
We also periodically run environmental workshops for all employees on environmental themes in which there is a lot of interest, in an effort to raise environmental awareness Groupwide.

Environmental audits

Each business site of the FPCO Group conducts internal audits every two years in compliance with the environmental management system, and efforts are made to improve the environmental management system at each site. 

Compliance with Environmental Laws and Regulations

In conducting its business activities, the FPCO Group observes environmental laws and regulations as well as voluntary industry standards, with the aim of realizing a recycling-oriented society. 

Environmental Conservation

Climate Change and Energy Use

The FPCO Group understands that measures against climate change constitute a core element of business management. In accordance with our environmental management plan, FP Corporation Eco Action 50 (FPEA-50), we will establish separate working groups in the product, production, logistics, sales and office functions to set goals independently and carry out activities for meeting them. In so doing, the Group will strive to reduce its total CO₂ emissions.

Use of Resources and Waste

The FPCO Group recognizes that the reduction of waste emissions and the proper treatment of waste are important environmental issues, given that the expansion of business activities leads to an increase in waste emissions.
In addition, the FPCO Group is aware that making proper use of resources is another important environmental issue, because existing resources are limited while more and more resources are required.

Use of Water

With regard to the use of water, the FPCO Group believes that it is necessary to understand the circumstances in the individual regions of its production bases and make effective use of limited resources.
We will implement appropriate management that responds to the issues regarding water resources that are specific to the individual regions and make effective use of water resources in an effort to cut our consumption of water resources.
