Initiatives for SDGs
What are Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
As a successor to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) established in 2001,
It is an international goal aiming for a sustainable and better world by 2015, which is stated in the “9 Agenda for Sustainable Development” adopted by the United Nations Summit in September 2030.
Composed of 17 goals and 169 targets, we vow to "leave no one behind" on the planet.
A blueprint for a better and more sustainable future for all.
We aim to solve global issues we face, such as poverty and inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.
The goals of the SDGs are interrelated.It is important to achieve each goal / target by 2030 so that no one is left behind.
Our company has been reviewed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the details of our SDGs initiatives.

Sponsoring the FIT Charity Run
FIT Charity Run (English name: Financial Industry in Tokyo For Charity Run)is an organization that contributes to society through donations to organizations that are rooted in the community and have socially meaningful activities, but have not secured sufficient funds for their activities due to problems such as recognition.
We also strive to contribute to society by providing more people in the industry with opportunities to support local action groups and by encouraging them to participate in charity events and community action groups.
The collected donations are donated to non-profit organizations that support learning environments for children with difficulties and support children's homes.
Daio Seisakusho also aims to cooperate with local organizations and grow together in order to build a better society.
Initiatives for career learning support activities
At Daio Seisakusho, in order to promote the career education of students, by actually visiting the workplace and getting in touch with our knowledge, techniques and skills, we will utilize a wide range of information such as the significance and role of working, and self I am working with the hope that it will give me an opportunity to choose my career path and way of life.
Specifically, you can explain what kind of activities you are doing with the efforts of the SDGs of Daio Seisakusho, and see and experience the actual manufacturing site to see how the product will be completed.
In addition, regarding quality control, which is one of our strengths, you can learn about environmental problems and responsibilities to create from the explanation of substances that affect the human body and the environment, which are called harmful substances, from the analysis results by actually operating the inspection equipment. ..
I feel that conducting career learning support activities will lead to awareness and new discoveries by communicating with students who have a wide range of values.

Working on ISO14001
The 3R "(1) Reduce (2) Reuse (3) Recycling" activities based on the Basic Act on Establishing a Recycling Society are, of course, wasteful due to the active introduction of materials that are friendly to the global environment and the creation of a mechanism that does not generate defective products. We aim to provide "friendly" products that are conscious of the global environment, such as not wasting resources.
Environmental management system that Daio Seisakusho thinks (Thinking about the environment means thinking about quality) Generally speaking, the environment is familiar to us, such as reducing resources (copy paper, etc.) and saving energy, but Daio Seisakusho puts the most effort into it. What we have is to create a mechanism that does not make defective products.
Disposing of defective products wastes the resources of the defective products themselves, and doubles the environmental burden of recreating them.
In other words, environmentally conscious activities also lead to quality.We want to reduce the environmental load by improving quality.
what we can do
If you feel "mottainai" at any time, you should be able to carry out activities that lead to environmental conservation.After all, people. The feeling of "mottainai" leads to cost reduction and can be returned to customers in the end.
At Daio Seisakusho, we pay attention to the usual awareness, and every day we clean up with a team of all employees to discover petit "mottainai", gather together to take in-house training, discuss, and tackle environmental problems brightly and happily. I'm out.
Aiming to be an eco-style company
Familiar activity "recycling" that everyone is doing. However, I think that there are things we can do closer to when we consider the energy that goes into "recycling." That is to continue to use it for a long time.
At Daio Seisakusho, we are paying attention to parts, which is one of our main products, as well as developing eco-designs with an awareness of extending the service life.In addition to the conventional 3Rs, we would like to introduce and promote "still usable" -Repair methods to support users who practice eco-style.
In response to Target 12.5, "We will significantly reduce waste generation by preventing, reducing, recycling and reusing waste.", We will reduce waste by implementing ISO9001 quality control and ISO14001 environmental goals. To proceed.
Our approach to harmful substances
Friendly to people and nature-Lead-free/CPSC/EN71 compliant/RoHS
Information such as MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) related to the products we handle and inspection results of hazardous substances that comply with regulations such as RoHS, CPSC, and EN71 are released at any time.
Daio Seisakusho is actively promoting lead-free production, but in 2006 there was a problem that lead was mixed into parts imported as lead-free products from the Chinese factory (preliminary inspection at the start of import passed as lead-free). ), And in order to strengthen the acceptance inspection and pre-shipment inspection at the time of import and arrival, we purchase and install a fluorescent X-ray analyzer in-house and perform sampling inspection to ensure quality assurance as appropriate. We are doing it.
In addition, we have a system in place to report the content inspection results using an X-ray fluorescence analyzer for the six RoHS regulated substances including lead on the same day in response to customer requests.
In our activities to minimize the adverse effects on human health and the environment of Target 12.4, we will promote the following lead-free and nickel-free specifications with the goal of changing the specifications by XNUMX% per year.
Regarding the problem of lead contained in our metal accessories
In a series of reports on "the problem that metal accessories contain high concentration of lead", I got the impression that imported products such as those made in China and cheap products for children contain a lot of lead. I will give it, but it depends on what kind of manufacturing method it was actually made.
However, due to the revision of the Food Sanitation Law, "toys used by infants as accessories" are finally regulated, which may damage the health of those manufactured or imported after October 20, 10 due to contact with infants. Unfortunately, the manufacturing side, the selling side, and the consuming side all have a weak awareness of lead, and even in Japan, metal products using lead-rich materials and manufacturing methods are for children. The current situation is that it is widely manufactured and distributed, not limited to metal accessories.
We will take this opportunity to change our awareness of lead, strive to understand the lead content in our products, and call attention to the lead content and handling of the products, and at the same time, whether or not they are subject to regulation. Regardless of this, we will continue to develop manufacturing methods and products for lead-free operation.
Since the number of people who complain of metal allergy symptoms is increasing in recent years, we have described countermeasures and cautions for nickel, which is listed as the top cause of metal allergies.Daio Seisakusho has handled more metal products than before, but since the number of people complaining of metal allergy symptoms is increasing in recent years, nickel is free from nickel, which is one of the causes of metal allergies. We would like to promote the production of products that are as friendly to people as possible by actively promoting the conversion.
What kind of metal can cause metal allergy (allergic contact dermatitis)?
It is whether it is a metal that is sensitive to sweat = acid and easily dissolves.Nickel is generally said to be the number one cause of metal allergies (allergic contact dermatitis).One of the reasons is that nickel is weak against acid and chlorine ions in sweat have a strong action to dissolve nickel.Another reason is that nickel itself is very often used in the base material (material itself) of industrial products or on the surface (plating, etc.).Even in our products, the silver-shining key chains and cellphone strap parts are nickel-plated.People often say that they are allergic to gold (K18) or silver (SV925), but in that case, it is rare that they are allergic to gold or silver. It is highly likely that the auxiliary materials added for industrial reasons, such as increased workability and hardness, contain metals that may cause metal allergies.Of course, there are some people who have metal allergies even if they are gold or silver, so please be careful.
Responding to the marine plastic problem
We would like to actively switch from conventional petroleum-derived plastic products to plant-derived plastics made from natural materials such as corn.
Biodegradable plastic is an eco-friendly material that is decomposed into water and CO2 by microorganisms in the soil and water. Even if it flows out into the sea, it will be decomposed and will not stay in the sea.
Currently, using PLA (polylactic acid), which is a biomass (plant-derived) plastic,Netsuke stringHas been commercialized.In addition, we are proceeding with trial production of shoehorns, security whistles, business card cases, PET bottle openers, clips, etc.
We are also promoting commercialization by adopting various environment-friendly biomass materials such as MAPKA and cellulose nanofibers.
Replacing conventional petroleum-based plastics with biodegradable plastics will help solve the marine plastic problem.
At Ishikawa Prefectural Noto High School, students who focused on the problem of marine debris during the "Comprehensive Exploration Time" created fish-shaped accessories to raise awareness of the existence of bioplastics.
It seems that this accessory, which was involved from ideation to completion, was molded with a XNUMXD printer using bioplastic filament.
In order to use the biomass fish as a key chain, we have provided a netsuke string made of polylactic acid.
In order to mitigate the effects of climate change and as an activity to contribute to carbon neutrality in 2050, we will change the resin-based products that we produce and sell as our standard products to biomass materials that emit less CO2. ..
We will continue to use MAPKA and thinned wood as alternative materials.
First of all, we will use our popular products for acrylic smartphone stands, coasters, and polystyrene multi-tray materials.MAPWe will commercialize it with the changed product and proceed with proposals to customers.
MAP TheEnvironmental Management Research Institute Co., Ltd.It is a material developed by the company, and it is a biomass material that contains 50% or more of paper powder, and the biomass  mark can be displayed.It is also a material that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 35% compared to plastic made from petroleum.
In response to the climate change countermeasures of Target 13.2, we will promote the sale of the above three products by changing 10% annually to COXNUMX reduction materials.In addition, we will cooperate in the prevention of global warming by providing environmentally friendly alternative products.
In addition, we are managing demand by visualizing the amount of electricity used every day and setting the upper limit of the amount used.Initially, we were engaged in energy-saving activities with the aim of reducing electricity costs, but we have also set targets from the perspective of reducing COXNUMX, and are managing demand with the goal of reducing usage by XNUMX% or less in the previous year.
As a paperless activity, we are promoting the digitization of quotations and invoices to customers and switching to email delivery.
The production of fur involves the sacrifice of animal life.
Fur products are produced by peeling off the skin, rather than cutting only the hair like wool.
These animals are sourced by capture and rearing, but by any means their cruelty has led to widespread movement against fur in the world.
However, recently, the epidemics of genuine animal fur have been expanding once again due to improvements in some breeding conditions.
Although we are not a company that strictly advocates for animal welfare and protection, we believe that it should not be an excessive supply in terms of the value of life and protection of the natural environment.
For example, for one-season fashion and small accessories such as bonbons, the fake fur "=Faux FurWe will cooperate by providing alternative products so that you can select.
We do not currently handle real fur.Made of polyesterFaux fur (eco fur)Is in stock and sold.
Daio Seisakusho will continue to promote fur-free initiatives with an awareness of ethical consumption without using real fur.
New way of working
I would like to introduce Goal 8 “Rewarding work and economic growth”.
In order to feel "motivated to work" and to achieve economic growth, we are currently promoting work style reforms using the Tokyo Metropolitan Government TOKYO Work Style Reform Declaration Incentive.
In addition, the Tokyo Metropolitan Olympic and Paralympic Preparatory Bureau aims to achieve both the provision of safe and smooth transportation services during the Tokyo Olympic Games and the stability of urban and economic activities.2020 TDM promotion projectParticipation in the program and promotion of staggered work and telecommuting as a preventive measure against infection with the new coronavirus, staggered work was divided into four stages and distributed.
As for working from home, we are systematically working from home about two days a week.
“Rewarding work” varies from person to person, but at our company, individual work styles work by actively incorporating various work styles, including such staggered work, working from home, and promotion of paid leave and childcare leave. We hope that the environment will be easier and that it will lead to improved productivity as a result.
