Environmental Contribution

We will contribute to environment
by products and services.

Basic Concept

In order to create many models (products and services) which contribute environment, we specify the assessment systems and assessment standards, and certify "Super Advanced Eco-Model", "Advanced Eco-Model", and "Eco-Model", in the order of higher environmental contribution. We award the development division of the certification model, and utilize as purpose to promote communication such as information sharing to inside/ outside of company, submit application to the internal environmental contribution award, etc.

Advanced Eco-Model

Products with superior environmental performance

Products with environmental performance of a certain level, such as products with higher environmental performance than previous products.

Eco-Model

Products with basic environmental performance

Introduction to Activities

Environmental Contribution
by Electrical Power Reduction
at the Data Center

We relocated the data center which engages data management at Pioneer to reduce the disaster risk and cost. For the relocation, we had proceeded server virtualization and abolition/ reduction of the equipment, so we could execute procedures to reduce energy consumption of IT infrastructure (reduce 61% of consumption power). Moreover, when we select the data center, we considered environmental friendly viewpoint such as utilization of recycled energy and energy saving performance, so energy consumption of accompanied facility such as light and air conditioning have been drastically improved. By this relocation, we could achieve reduction of disaster risk such as earthquake or flood damage and cost reduction of consumption power on IT equipment or accompanied facility. It also improved PUE value* to evaluate energy saving at the data center.

Smaller PUE value means better power efficiency at the data center.
Calculation methods of the PUE value: PUE = Consumption power in entire data center (kWh) / Consumption power of IT equipment (kWh)
