Enhancing environmental mindset through company-wide events

Nitto has been holding a global company-wide event, "Nitto Environment Week," to coincide with World Environment Day on June 5 every year since 2019. Various events were held by using digital contents such as easy-to-learn environmental textbook, environmental quiz, and other participatory-type events. In 2021, we held an 3R event to ask our employees to think about garbage problems around themselves and take 3R actions at both home and work.
