Environmental Management Logo
This logo was created in June 1993 and it is used when making internal postings about our EMS activities and Environmental Charter. The design was selected from among internal suggestions. The green leaves represent environmental technology, nature, and the hands of our employees, while the blue circle depicts the sky and the earth, environmental equipment made by our employees, and the community and society surrounding us.
