What We Do

  1. Legal Compliance Checklist

    We established a check system for legal compliance and made an annual plan to conduct fire prevention drills, check deleterious substance management, have drainage and soil analyzed by external organizations, and measure environmental conditions such as odors, noises, and dust.

  2. Green Procurement

    In order to provide products that are considerate to the global environment, MARUWA Group is procuring products and services that impose smaller burdens on the environment. We have issued our Green Procurement Guidelines to all our business partners so as to communicate to them our Environmental Policy and the goals of our Green Procurement. Also, those partners assist us with reports on the situation regarding use of environmentally harmful substances and outline surveys on environmental and quality matters.

  3. Zero Emission

    "Zero Emission" means carrying out final disposal of wastes by methods other than landfill. At our Toki, Seto, Naoetsu and Kasugayama Plants, we have achieved zero emission by carrying out material recycling of 95% or more of their total emissions (excluding regular combustible material).

  4. RoHS

    MARUWA's ceramic products, electronic parts (EMC parts, etc.) and device products are all RoHS Directive-compliant, with the exception of those that are produced on customer's specification (customized product). The "RoHS Directive" is a Directive enforced in the European Union (EU) that forbids the use of environment-burdening substances. The Directive restricts to introduce those electrical and electronic equipment that contains any of the six banned substances: lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) to the market. Likewise, our ceramic products, electronic parts (EMC parts, etc.) and device products comply with the "Chinese RoHS *". They also conform to almost all of the REACH regulations. We are able to provide the report concerning chemical substance contents for each of our products upon the request. Please contact member of our sales team regarding the report.

    Regulatory measure on harmful substances that was enacted in China on March 1, 2007. Formal title: "Administrative Measure on the Control of Pollution Caused by Electronic Information Products".
