The Pioneer Group aims to uphold and share its philosophy: "Move the Heart and Touch the Soul" through its business activities.
We consider one of the major factors in achieving this goal is the preservation of the global environment, with our "Philosophy of Environmental Protection" established in 1992.
In recent years, an increase in the world's population and expansion in economic activities have accelerated environmental problems such as global warming, pollution, loss of resources, and biodiversity which previously had been advocated has now become apparent. The range of social responsibility in continuing business exceeds our fields, where we are expected to achieve activities related to environmental preservation through entire lifecycles, contributing to the environment through our products and services. In order to achieve a sustainable society with stakeholders, the Pioneer Group promotes cross cutting strategies for environmental protection in view of laws and regulations and social contributions in response to each issue. We initiate our activities via environmental education and proactively disclosing information of the results.
The Pioneer Group will make efforts to always contribute to maintaining and realizing the rich and safe global environment through our corporate activities, based on the general understanding that it is one of our corporate missions to maintain, improve, and hand over the global environment to the next generation.
The Pioneer Group shall promote environmental preservation activities through four basic actions to address four key environmental issues.
In order to realize environmental contributions from the perspective of stakeholders, we promote a shared vision of our environmental policy globally.
The Pioneer Group declares its philosophy and policies concerning environmental protection as follows:
The following 4 basic approaches are taken in promoting the environmental protection activities:
To create an eco-friendly, enriched life, and contribute to society with high quality "technology" and "activities" for the realization of a sustainable society.
As corporate citizens, our mission is not only to accelerate proactive environmental preservation and fulfillment of our responsibility with mitigation measures, but also to propose eco-friendly measures, enrich life, and deliver sensations. As a company that has offered the world's first products to customers, we established "Environmental Vision 2020" based on our consideration toward environmental contributions.
Pioneer launched the "Pioneer Environmental Conservation Committee" to control environmental preservation activities in 1991. In 2004, the "Pioneer Eco-Products Committee" which cross divisionally controls environmental preservation activities related to products was inaugurated. These current two committees structure serves to promote overall activities of Pioneer's environmental preservation system to cover both facilities and products.
In the future, transparency of CO2 impact across all business activities will be promoted in addition to activities for manufacturing plants, offices, and products. A system for environmental contribution by planning, development, production, and use of products will be organized to reduce greenhouse gases for each stage of the lifecycle.
