“Income inequality” accounts for the majority of inequality.

 Women are more likely less 50% of their average income than men to live on because of "income inequality".

SDGs Goal 11 "Sustainable cities and communities"


"Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable"

More than half of us live in cities now. By 2030, two-thirds of all humanity—will be urban.
Making cities sustainable means creating career and business opportunities, safe and affordable housing, and building resilient societies and economies.

Picking up trash


  Every April, our new employees and our Environmental Management Committee pick up trash in two parts, one for Miyako City and one for Yamada Town. While walking on the sidewalk, we pick up from small trash to large trash such as empty cans, empty bottles, cigarette butts, and plastic bags.
The collected garbage is properly sorted and disposed of, such as burnable garbage, plastic, empty cans, and bottles. This activity contribute to solve the problem of disposing of large amounts of waste in a proper way.


Sorting garbage


 Waste generated in daily work is not just discarded, but is sorted and then disposed of. Even for a single laminated film, there is a dedicated place to throw away the laminate, and the batteries are also insulated and then thrown away.
 In addition, as part of environmental education, new employees are educated on the correct sorting method and waste storage. This activity contributes to the theme of SDGs Goal 11, "Sustainable cities and communities" along with the above-mentioned "picking up trash".
