Environmental Preservation
We use precious resources efficiently, so as to live in harmony with the global environment.
  With the aim of maintaining good relations with the community and living in harmony with the global environment, Godo Steel specializes in recycling steel and promotes various environmental activities. Notably, Godo Steel has installed various environmental protection systems, including dust emission prevention equipment, water pollution prevention equipment and air pollution control equipment. In an effort to create “green plants” that are welcomed by local residents, and thereby sustain a harmonious relationship with the global environment and local communities, we are planting as many trees as possible in open spaces inside the plant's property line.
 In November 13, 2003, Godo Steel's Osaka works received notice from JIC Quality Assurance Ltd. that the Plant had been certified by ISO14001, internationally recognized environmental management standards.
 This meant that all Godo Steel's works (Osaka, Himeji and Funabashi) had acquired ISO14001 certification. Since these works had by then already acquired the 2008 version of ISO9000 certification, the new acquisition of ISO14001 encouraged them to further upgrade their continuous quality enhancement and environmental preservation promotion systems. Godo Steel will continue to contribute to society as a resource circulation-oriented electric arc furnace steel maker, under the corporate philosophy of contributing to “environmental preservation on a global scale” and “constructing an environment-conscious society.”
CO2 Emissions

 Godo Steel has replaced its steel making processes with new processes that do not require a blast furnace, and has changed the fuel from petroleum to natural gas. These changes enabled the company to reduce yearly CO2 emissions by more than 80%, compared with FY 1990. The company will positively promote energy conversion and introduce a drop-shipping system to further reduce CO2 emissions.
