Initiatives in Containers and Product Packaging Materials

Our Stance

OMRON cares about and works on the environment burdens by containers and packaging materials for products, such as individual product boxes, trays, and sticks.

FY2017 Overview

The amount of containers and packaging materials used increased 2% in Japan and 91% abroad from fiscal 2016, due mainly to the increase in production volume. OMRON will keep working on resource saving by monitoring the amount of containers and packaging materials, and by standardizing containers and product packaging materials. In Japan, OMRON reports to the volume to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, complying with the Containers and Packaging Recycling Law.
