Of the various challenges involved in business activities, BRAING is committed to focusing specifically on social interests and aiming for sustainable growth in society.
We have decided upon these as four of our most important issues. With the help of business partners and local residents, we are working together to address these issues.
Creating a circular economy is a global theme. BRAING actively supports and works toward the accomplishment of this theme. Every member of our company is working together under the belief that our business is part of building a society with a true circular economy.
To prevent the earth's limited resources from being depleted, we are doing what we can to provide recycled products through our vehicle recycling business. In order to make it possible to provide a stable supply, we strive to take in large amounts of end-of-life vehicles and manage them properly.
With the themes of a "circular economy", "low carbon society", and "biodiversity" as our goals, we are undertaking initiatives to reduce the burden on the environment to reach these goals. We will continue promoting various environmental conservation activities through our business and fulfill our social responsibilities.
We proactively cultivate talented personnel, giving them expertise not only in business, but also the knowledge and skills to promote conservation of the global environment, and beyond. By improving our corporate vitality, we are helping develop the industry and contributing to local communities.
Under the theme of environmental contribution, the plant logos represent the ocean, earth, sun, and sky.
At present, destruction of the environment is proceeding at a tremendous speed all across the planet. With global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain, deforestation, declining wildlife species, desertification, marine pollution, and more, the threats are too numerous to count. Even in Japan, we face numerous problems directly connected to our lives, be it harmful substances making their way to us from nearby countries, tornadoes and landslides caused by abnormal weather, etc. Part of the underlying cause behind all of this is the degree of mass production and mass consumption throughout the world. Problems can be attributed to human-induced natural destruction, trying to dispose of the massive, overflowing amounts of waste, and other similar issues, all while we continue to greedily consume our limited resources.
While we are facing a declining birthrate and aging population in Japan, emerging and developing countries such as China and India, which make up almost 40% of the world's population, are expected to continue increasing in population in the foreseeable future. And in that not-so-distant future, in exchange for modernization of the entire human race, we will see insufficient supplies of resources, energy, and food, leading to further depletion of resources and making the seriousness of our global environmental issues more apparent.
We have volunteered to enter the environmental business amidst currently increasing global concern over environmental issues. Every company, every individual, and the human race as a whole needs to face these shared global issues and take action, starting right now.
With our business, we are pursuing recycling to the utmost limit to appropriately process end-of-life vehicles in accordance with the law, while at the same time embodying the tenets of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Although we may be a small business from a global perspective, we strongly believe that our efforts are part of building a truly circular economy, and all of our employees are working together to contribute to local communities and combat global environmental issues. We will draw on that accumulated technology and know-how, spreading it all across the world.
Please look forward to the continuing efforts of the BRAING Group.
