We aim to reduce any environmental burdens that might arise as a result of our business activities.
Efforts are being made to meet targets to reduce the amount of electricity used in the conduct of business. The following figures are non-consolidated. Click here for other environment-related performance data.
Head Office Initiatives
At Head Office, we have a number of energy conservation measures in place.
Installed in each department on all floors to ensure better insulation.
Helps reduce power consumption as the summer temperature in offices is set at 27°C.
Reduce power consumption as fewer and dimmer corridor lights are used.
Double effect gas absorption chiller and hot water generator
|Water transport system
Controls the number of pumps activated by the heat load and controls the pump inverter
|Air conditioners, exhaust fans
To reduce the amount of power used, air volume is controlled by an inverter activated by the difference between the indoor temperature that is set and the ambient temperature.
For a reduction in power consumption:
Provide energy efficiency. The shield keeps cool air in during summer and hot air in during winter.
|Water-conserving wash basin fixtures
Water-conserving foam dispensers reduce the amount of water needed for handwashing.
PET Bottle Cap Collection Campaign
In July 2009, the DENTSU SOKEN Head Office launched an annual PET bottle cap collection campaign. Volunteers collect and recycle used PET bottle caps, which are sold to recycling enterprises, thereby providing the money for poor children in Third World countries to receive vaccines.
The bottle caps are collected at Head Office and the vaccines are purchased and provided through the NPO Cap Savings Box Promotion Network and the NPO that goes by the name of Japan Committee, Vaccines for the World’s Children.
It is said that if 400 caps are incinerated, rather than recycled, they generate 3,150g of CO2. This initiative thus contributes to society by reducing CO2 emissions.
In Tokyo’s Minato Ward, where the DENTSU SOKEN Head Office is located, we take part in cleaning activities each spring and fall, together with other nearby companies. This not only helps protect the environment, but also helps the community by removing litter, such as empty cans and bottles, as well as cigarette butts, that passers-by drop on the sidewalk.

Raising Environmental Consciousness
E-Learning for Employees
Every year, DENTSU SOKEN conducts environment-related e-learning sessions for all officers and employees. By highlighting issues related to our and the Dentsu Group’s environmental activities, we hope to raise the environmental consciousness of all those who work for us.
Slogans that highlight the SDGs are being solicited from all those at Dentsu Group companies in Japan and their family members. This step is our attempt to increase awareness in this country of the SDGs.
