Once the Japan' s Law Concerning the Rational Use of Energy, which streamlines energy usage, and the Revised Soil Contamination Countermeasures Act came into effect, businesses could no longer afford to wait to adopt environmental measures. In addition, social awareness concerning global environmental issues such as the development of low-carbon societies, protection of biodiversity, and the formation of recycling-based societies is rising rapidly.
Taisei established the Environmental Division by consolidating and integrating related divisions and functions to accelerate the pace of responses to societal needs and to lead to new business. Environmental businesses are conducted under a strong organizational structure that can exhibit comprehensive abilities within the company.
Environmental business is one of the pillars of Taisei's growth strategy. The Environmental Division is working as a platform with company-wide ties to collaborate with other divisions.
