Contribution to the Environment

Green Procurement of Energy


Green Procurement of Energy

The Green Power Certificate System is a system for turning electricity generation using natural energy sources (such as biomass and wind power) into "environmental value" that can be traded in the form of "green power certificates" in order to promote wider adoption of natural energy sources, energy conservation, and reductions in CO2 emissions. We have purchased green wind power certificates from the Japan Natural Energy Company Limited since April 2002, and allocate them to our corporate museums and offices. We are making a positive contribution to the fight against global warming at the local level as well, and since April 2007 have been a "Yokohama-Green Partner" in Yokohama's Hama Wing wind power project.
