Initiatives to reduce environmental burden

Reduction of CO2 emissions

The Kaga Electronics Head Office building employs an air supply type double-skin* curtain wall on the exterior, allowing air to flow into the office, thus reducing heat load nd providing natural ventilation. The energy efficient design also enhances sound insulation.
In addition, the building features a variety of environmental technologies, with the use of solar panels on the roof enabling eco energy and the installation of LED lighting throughout. These technologies serve to save energy and reduce CO2 emissions.
* Double-skin technology refers to a method of construction in which part or all of a building exterior is covered in glass.

PC product reuse and recycling business

The Kaga Electronics Group company KAGA MICRO SOLUTION CO., LTD. has flexibly changed and expanded business domain to meet a wide range of customer demands, from the development, production and sale of electronic products to their repair, maintenance, reuse and recycling. The company leverages know-how in the production of electronic equipment and an extensive procurement route for electronic parts and materials—both of which were accumulated in EMS business, a strength of the Group—to focus on a reuse and recycling business for PC products in recent years.
Although the number of reused units decreased in the year to March 2016 following unusually high demand the previous year, the figure rebounded gradually thereafter, and in the year to March 2019, actually increased by 34% year on year.
In addition to “reduce programs” that look especially at cutting CO2 and rubbish, the Group will contribute to a reduction in environmental burden from a reuse and recycling perspective and to the realization of a recyclingoriented society.
