SquareBecoming a global, environmentally friendly corporation


We established our Environmental Problem Project Team in 2002 with the goal of becoming an "Environmentally Friendly Morimura." Then, in 2007, we formulated Environmental Policy, which incorporates our founding spirit, and introduced the Environmental Management System to vigorously and systematically promote actions for protecting the global environment. We acquired ISO14001 certification, an international standard for environmental management system, in March 2008.
Taking advantage of functions only available to trading companies, we produce products and technologies that help reduce environmental impact as well as products the exert low environmental impact in production processes in Japan and overseas. We strongly supply and encourage the use of these products and technologies across society.
