Organization for Promoting CSR

Shiono Koryo's Efforts

  • Solar power

    As part of our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, we adopted a solar power system in spring 2013. 99 290-W solar panels installed on the roof of the Factory 18 building are capable of generating up to 27 kW of power and are used as a supplementary source of power. We have achieved a CO2 reduction of 28,185.3 kg/year (the equivalent of 72.3 10-m tall camphor trees).

  • Odor reduction

    Since our Osaka factory is surrounded by apartments and residential areas, odor reduction measures are an indispensible part of our consideration for our neighbors. In each of our factory facilities, we have installed deodorization equipment to target the appropriate odor types and concentrate and eliminate the odor-causing agents inside the factory before releasing the air to the outside.
    In addition, as a health and safety-related activity, we conduct odor patrols in the surrounding neighborhoods twice per week in order to confirm the effectiveness of our odor reduction measures in the community.

  • Food recycling loop

    The “Food Recycling Loop” is a local sustainability model that is part of the efforts set forth in our Recycling Business Plan and is based on the Food Recycling Law. As part of our ISO 14001 efforts, we established this “Food Recycling Loop” in 2015. By recycling food extract residue used in our manufacturing processes as food waste for recycling, we hope to raise environmental awareness among our own employees while contributing to a more sustainable community.

  • Participation in local events

    Starting in 2013, we have been participating in the “Yodogawa Festival,” an arts-and-crafts event for children held in Yodogawa-ku, Osaka.
    In the “Fragrance Corner,” we introduce familiar fragrances in order to give children a small amount of insight into the world of fragrances.

  • Educational workshops

    As a member of the Kansai Career Educational Support Council, we offer educational workshops upon request for elementary and middle school students.
    Educating students on the roles played by fragrances in our everyday lives, we also allow them to experience a variety of less-common fragrances, giving them a taste of the challenge and reward in the world of fragrance creation.
