Daifuku Eco-Action Program

In 2012, Daifuku established its Eco-Action program, which rewards eco-points for environmental activities undertaken by employees in a bid to foster an environmental mindset. With a variety of ecological activities provided in each region, a total of 6,458 employees participated in volunteer activities and environmental learning events.
Eco-points gained by employees can be exchanged for green goods and other rewards. In addition, we donate an amount equivalent to the total points gained by them to external organizations.

Environmental Award System

We established an Environmental Award System in 2014 to recognize the environmental initiatives of individual employees and Group affiliate companies, which serves as a driving force of our environmental management efforts. In fiscal 2018, employees participated in individual volunteer initiatives of composting food scraps and weeds and creating toys using scrap material; as a group, we received commendations for using a special jig to create a lift-free large frame, changing to paper-free customer specification documentation, and reusing production waste.

D-EMS (DAIFUKU Eco-Management System) KPI

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.The goal for fiscal 2018 was 95%, and the achieved companywide deployment rate was 95.3%.
