  2. Execution

We also reduce our environmental burden, set environmental goals and objectives related to preventing contamination, and develop progressive environmental measures.
    1. By providing a society with electronic devices that use fewer resources and less energy, we are helping to reduce society's burden on the environment and to fight climate change.
    2. We make efforts to promote mutual understanding between stakeholders through cooperative solidarity with all regions and communities.
