What is "Green Stencil Program"?

SDGs
  1. Maxell will donate a portion of sales of electroforming products developed and manufactured with Maxell's precise Electro Fine Forming technologies called “EF2” to plant trees. Maxell has named this program the "Green Stencil Program".
  2. The consulting company for the tree planting is CARBON FREE CONSULTING CORPORATION. Maxell will plant larch trees in designated areas under their management. A standard-sized larch can absorb about 250㎏ of CO2 over 30 years.
  3. This program started in April 2021, and the results of carbon offsetting will be sequentially posted on our website.
  4. We will start with the Mongolian region, however we will consider not only planting trees in this region but also in other regions.

Corporate Sustainability Vision

Maxell orporate Sustinability Vision

The Maxell Group has formulated its Corporate Sustainability Vision for "Contributing to the Earth 100 years from now" through its mission: "Contribute to a sustainable society by innovating unique, original technologies."

Maxell is moving forward with energy-saving initial activities with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions by 30% compared with FY2013 level by FY2030.

Currently we have established specific action plans through to 2030, and plan to continuously promote steps that will boost the possibility of achieving the target.

Activities and Achievements for Realizing a Low Carbon Society

CO2 emissions

The Maxell Group is promoting initiatives to conserve electricity, such as turning off lights, growing "green curtains" of plants, upgrading air conditioners and lights, efficiently operating equipment by managing demand, and creating visualizations of power consumption patterns.

In fiscal 2019, we proposed a plan to systematically renew air conditioners and chillers particularly at Maxell’s Kyushu Works. By upgrading to energy-saving types and adjusting capacity to suit the current situations, we achieved 49 MWh of energy savings.

CO2 emissions reduction image

Electroforming products require electric power and emit CO2 in the manufacturing process of plating and growing metals.

We would like to work together with our customers in Asian countries that use electroformed products for manufacturing to improve environmental problems for the next 100 years.

We will further reduce and absorb the amount of CO2 emissions that we cannot reduce even if we make efforts to reduce CO2 emissions by investing in afforestation activities, which we call "carbon offset".

We are planning additional measures to achieve virtually zero CO2 emissions by 2050.

In addition, Maxell signed the United Nations Global Compact(hereinafter referred to as UNGC) proposed by the United Nations and was registered as the participant company on February 19, 2021. Maxell also joined to "Global Compact Network Japan (GCNJ)" that consists of Japanese companies who signed UNGC.

Through the active implementation of the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact, UNGC is an international initiative that contributes to the realization of a sustainable global society by building platforms for companies and organizations in Japan and overseas to jointly create the will and actions to achieve SDGs.

UN Global Compact

Maxell supports the ten principles set forth by UNGC, consisting of "human rights," "labor," "the environment," and "anti-corruption," and will continue to engage in activities in various fields.
