At TYO, our vision is to contribute to a society where diverse values coexist. We are actively engaged in various initiatives including environmental conservation, regional revitalization, and work style reform. Through our business activities, we fulfill our corporate social responsibility (CSR) and aim to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs and the resolution of societal challenges.
By digitizing our internal application forms, we have reduced our paper usage and are striving to protect the environment. Furthermore, we will continue to progressively digitize our internal documents. At TYO, compared to before our digital transition, we have achieved a paperless environment with over 30,000 sheets saved annually. The paper we use for copying is PEFC-certified, and through the “1 box for 2 trees project” by Askul Corporation, we have confirmed the planting of 622 trees in 2021.
◆About “1 box for 2 trees project”
For every box of PEFC-certified copy paper designated by Askul (made from one tree such as Acacia or Eucalyptus), two Eucalyptus trees are confirmed for industrial afforestation, linking it to the sustainability of the raw materials. TYO supports this initiative, which contributes to the protection of local natural forests and addresses various challenges in the community.
We are transitioning to eco-friendly clear files where possible, converting approximately 1,200 clear files to paper files annually. By choosing FSC-certified paper files, we are further committed to contributing to the environment.
We collect PET bottle caps and donate the proceeds from their sale to support vaccinations for children in developing countries. Additionally, this recycling effort contributes to environmental conservation. TYO supports the philosophies of the following two organizations and participates in the eco-cap collection initiative.
◆Japan Committee, Vaccines for the World’s Children
This organization collaborates with UNICEF to convert received donations into vaccines and related equipment, delivering them to children around the world.
◆Disable Support Association of Japan, Eco Cap Association
The organization collects, cleans, and grinds eco-caps to create chips, which are then sold to recycling companies. The profits from these sales are donated to the ‘Vaccines for Children of the World: Japan Committee’ (JCV). TYO has entrusted this organization with the collection of eco-caps.
By switching to LED lighting in the office, we are reducing electricity consumption and contributing to CO2 reduction.
We’ve segmented the training for Production Managers into three stages, aiming to cultivate five new producers annually. This program clarifies roles and progression milestones, with hands-on training, cost meetings, and field experiences at each phase. Experienced Producers, Directors, and Production Managers lead the training, emphasizing practical knowledge and fostering a development-focused culture within the company.
To promote the health of TYO employees, create an environment conducive to taking vacations, improve productivity, and offer opportunities for diverse experiences, we established the ‘Refreshment Allowance’ system in 2023. We provide this allowance to employees who take five consecutive paid leave days on weekdays and undergo a health check-up.
We aim for our veteran career employees to further contribute to their work by leveraging the skills they have cultivated at TYO. We support them through value creation activities and assistance with service contract agreements.
