The Toyal Group’s approach
12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION17 PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS
As a manufacturer of aluminium products, we make every effort to communicate what we do as well as our technological expertise to stakeholders across the board. We will stimulate not only our business but the entire industry by educating the next generation and contribute to a more sustainable society by pursuing further technological development. Our factories conduct production activities with a close eye on ensuring the safety of neighboring communities. We are dedicated to enhancing the local communities we call home and always keeping the lines of communication with our neighbors open.
13 CLIMATE ACTION17 PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS
Whenever a climate-related hazard or natural disaster occurs in any country, especially any of the countries or regions where we operate, we conduct disaster relief activities in cooperation with the affected communities. We are continually looking at ways to help strengthen local resilience and the ability to adapt in the wake of a disaster by discussing disaster response measures with local residents and more. We are also developing a business continuity management (BCM) system that will enable us to restore normal operations as soon as possible in the event of a disaster

OUR PERFORMANCE

Environmental Education for the Next Generation at Our Production Site (Hino Works)

Our production sites have a significant impact on local communities, and we believe that contributing to the education of the next generation at our production sites has a positive effect on the sustainability of both the Toyal Group and the community.
The Hino Works co-sponsored phase 2 of a renovation project for the Lake Biwa Museum in Shiga Prefecture, where the plant operates. Focusing on the lake and how it relates to people’s lives, the Lake Biwa Museum is a comprehensive museum that attracts many visitors. The museum conducts joint research on the environment with many universities and research institutions and also serves as an environmental learning facility, making it a popular field trip destination.

Launching an Educational Website about Aluminium

We believe that it is crucial to find different ways to get as many people as possible interested in aluminium. In fiscal 2017 we launched an educational website about aluminium* containing easy-to-understand explanations and illustrations with an eye to getting people of all ages interested in aluminium and helping them gain a better understanding about the metal.
The website has garnered a lot of attention since it hit the internet. We have received inquiries from parents and teachers of elementary school-age children, people with whom we never had direct contact before. We were also asked to be interviewed by a TV producer and the editor of a newsletter for union employees of a major company. *Visit Toyo Aluminium’s corporate website to explore its educational site on aluminium.
