As warming of the global climate system due to human activities continues, we have formulated TAISEI Green Target 2020, 2050 which incorporates the concept of the construction industry contributing to future generations through our business. We of course provide our customers with buildings with high energy efficiency performance undertake a wide range of initiatives including reducing carbon dioxide emissions from construction sites during construction, minimizing the quantity of construction waste disposed of, promoting 3R activities (reduce, reuse, recycle), and creating a more diverse natural environment by conserving biodiversity, as well as. Also, we develop technologies with the aim of speeding up recovery and restoration from the Great East Japan Earthquake by even 1 day.
