SDGs Initiatives


In support of the “Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)” advocated by the United Nations, we will contribute to realizing a sustainable society through our business activities.


What are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations in September 2015 as the common global indicator that aims to achieve a society in which the three aspects of the economy, society, and the environment are well-balanced. The SDGs consist of 17 goals and 169 targets, whose purposes are to achieve the social infrastructure for people to live a life worthy of human beings by 2030 in poverty, hunger, water, health, education, medical care, freedom of speech, and gender equality.

Practical Examples 01

By increasing the sales of wallcoverings and other products made from recycled materials, we contribute to reducing environmental load.

We actively realize the upcycling of resources by using recycled materials such as rice husks, sawdust, recycled glass beads, listings of cushioning material, etc.

Specific Initiatives

  • Production and Sales of wallcoverings made from recycled materials.
  • Use of recycled paper for backing paper of wallcoverings.
  • Production, Sales, and Promotion of “Non-Woven Wallcoverings” that allow for the reduction of environmental burden in re-covering.

Introduction of wallcoverings made from recycled materials

Rice Husks
Rice Husks

Wallpaper made from rice husks

Rice is one of the staple foods of the Japanese people, and a large amount of “rice husks” are generated when “rice is hulled”, which is one of the processes to produce rice. Since rice husks are generated in large quantities every year, various ways to effectively use them are being researched. We produce wallpaper using "golden powder," a mixture of ground rice husks and sawdust.

Recycled Glass Beads
Recycled Glass Beads

Wallpaper made from recycled glass beads

Glass beads are made mainly from broken window glass, and are 100% recycled material. The main use is for road materials.
We also produce wallpaper with glass beads scattered all over or patterned on it.

Cushioning Material
Cushioning Material

Wallpaper made from listings of cushioning material

We crush, sort, and process the sheets and rods of foamed olefin generated during the shaping of foamed olefin blocks to produce olefin chips. We use these olefin chips to produce wallpaper.

Through various processes, recycled materials are transformed into wallcoverings that are unimaginable from their original materials.
Our products can be viewed in the sample books of domestic and international name-brand manufacturers and house-builders. And our original sample book, “ACCENT by Wallcoverings” is also available. The products in this collection are all made with “Non-Woven Paper” and have unique designs.

Practical Examples 02

By focusing on environmental activities, we aim to establish a sustainable production system.

By understanding the impact of our own production activities on the environment and setting numerical targets to curb the negative impact, we are implementing continuous reduction activities.

Responsible Consumption and Production
Climate Action

Specific Initiatives

  • Reduction of carbon dioxide emissions through energy-saving measures.
  • Reduction of waste and PRTR-listed chemicals.
  • Reuse of industrial waste. ex)Cementation of sludge

Practical Examples 03

We aim to realize a safe and secure work environment.

With thorough safety management at production factories and a training system tailored to individual skill levels, we aim to create a safe and secure workplace while protecting the employment of our employees.

Good Health and Well-being
Gender Equality
Decent Work and Economic Growth
Reduced Inequality

Specific Initiatives

  • Employment of 100% full-time employees has been continued for more than ten years.
  • Safety seminars have been held.
  • Employees themselves conduct regular 5S patrols to point out hazards, make improvements, and take corrective measures.

We will actively develop products that lead to the reduction of environmental load!

We will strengthen our product development in the following themes as environmentally friendly wallcoverings.

  • (1) Upcycling product development utilizing recycled materials.
  • (2) Development and Promotion of wallcoverings that use “Non-Woven Paper” which is less likely to damage the substrate in re-covering.
  • (3) Development of wallcoverings that lead to energy-saving and an improved air environment.

The most important role of wallcoverings is to decorate walls, but there are many hidden stories behind the commercialization of these wallcoverings. One of the most demanded themes today is the environment. To pass on a better planet to future generations, we will actively contribute to the regeneration of global quality through activities to achieve the goals set out in the SDGs.

Environmental Policy

When we think of humans as part of nature, there is nothing more important than the connection between our lives and nature. We provide wall coverings made of natural stone, soil, wood, and recycled materials, and contribute to the creation of safe and comfortable spaces with a cozy atmosphere under the slogan, " With sincerity in quality".
We are now faced with the problem of a deteriorating global environment. In order to coexist with nature and pass on a better planet to future generations, we aim to be a company that contributes to the regeneration of global quality by giving consideration to the environment in all our business activities.
We hereby declare that we have established an environmental policy and will put it into practice "with all our heart" by all employees.
