SDGs

Fundamental Approach

At Shin Industries, we have been committed to product development to remain "a company that always contributes to society," in line with our company's basic philosophy. This is because, since our foundation, we have wanted to enrich people's lives by solving social issues. Recently, our products have been used in transportation systems to deliver COVID-19 vaccines in a cold state worldwide.

Currently, discussions towards achieving a "sustainable society" are being held worldwide, highlighting various issues. In response, Shin Industries focuses on "human resources" and "environment" to confront and contribute to the realization of a sustainable society. In terms of "human resources," we continue to accept trainees and interns and wish to enhance activities such as waste reduction through improvement in product quality, energy-saving activities, and fundraising activities through SDG education for employees.

Moreover, our company has been conducting corporate activities in "environments" surrounded by beautiful nature, with production bases set up. In the construction of a new building in Obama City, Fukui Prefecture, we are planning not only to install solar panels but also to introduce hydrogen systems. By achieving environmental goals such as reducing electricity consumption, we will protect nature, pass it on to the next generation, and promote activities in cooperation with the region towards achieving carbon neutrality.

Detailed Initiatives at SUSUMU

1.Coastal Cleanup Activities in Collaboration with Municipalities / Doing What We Can Now – Contributing and Giving Back to the Local Community

Itoigawa is known as a coastal town famous for its sea. Many people come to Itoigawa to search for jade, which we are very pleased about. However, the beautiful beaches here are also littered with drift garbage and illegally dumped trash, among which plastic waste does not decompose and remains forever, becoming microplastics. Marine life is at great risk of ingesting these microplastics. Shin Industries aims to protect the environment by doing "what we can do now." Despite the cloudy weather and light rain at the gathering, the sun came out as we started the beach cleanup, allowing us to conduct the activity under refreshing weather conditions.

2.SDGs Education at Obama No. 2 Junior High School

As education for the young generation who will carry the future, we conducted SDGs education aimed at junior high school students in Obama City, where our production base is located. We visited class 1 of the second year and conducted a lesson on diversity for about 35 students.

3.Transportation of COVID-19 Vaccines

Products from Shin Industries have been used in Data Loggers for transporting Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccines, enabling safe delivery of vaccines to various countries around the world and contributing to society.
