Daifuku Eco-Action Program

In 2012, Daifuku set up its Eco-Action program, which rewards Eco-points for environmental activities undertaken by employees in a bid to foster an environmental mindset, and provided a variety of ecological activities in each region. Eco-Action programs are offered at various locations. In fiscal 2017, a total of 7,474 participants carried out volunteer activities and attended environment related learning events.
Eco-points gained by the employees can be exchanged for eco-friendly goods and other rewards. In addition, an amount equivalent to the total points gained by the employees is donated to external organizations.

Environmental Award System

Environmental Award System

We established an Environmental Award System in 2014 to recognize the environmental initiatives of individual employees and internal company groups, which serves as a driving force of our environmental management efforts. In fiscal 2017, employees participated in nature conservation activities of the Kanagawa Prefecture Mountain Federation as individuals, and as a Group, we received commendations for introducing an ecological water system making use of the characteristics of alkaline electrolyzed water to reduce environmental impact, and for realizing oil-free processing.

D-EMS (DAIFUKU Eco-Management System)

In January 2017, we launched D-EMS to allow for timely assessment of global environment data to effectively reduce our environmental impact. By receiving monthly reports of environmental information from our various sites (including non-Japan affiliates), we have sped up the gathering, aggregating and analyzing of environmental information to achieve our environmental goals.
