Reducing the environmental impact of the PPIH Group's business activities
Installation of energy-saving equipment
In order to reduce the environmental impact of store operations, the PPIH Group is working to reduce CO2 emissions by installing "energy-saving equipment" that efficiently operates store air conditioning systems, as well as refrigerated and freezer cases. In addition, UNY has obtained ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management system at its head office and all of its stores, and has set targets for reducing the consumption of electricity, gas, and heavy oil at each of it's stores, as one of the ISO environmental goals. UNY as a whole is promoting energy-saving initiatives with a FY2020 target of reducing CO2 emissions by 3% (per business area and business hour) from the previous year.

Target: Don Quijote, UNY, Nagasakiya, UD Retail (as of December 2020)
Refrigerated and freezer cases: 16 stores
The PPIH Group promotes initiatives to reduce the generation of plastics, as well as recycle them properly as a resource, given that the use of plastic leads to the destruction of natural resources, including marine issues.
Implementing renewable energy
In order to lessen emissions of Co2 gas, which is produced as a result of the PPIH Group's business activities, we have implemented wind and solar powered energy sources at a number of our stores. We are evaluating the effectiveness of renewable energy sources for the future, and are moving forward with the intention of reducing the environmental impact which the Group's business has on the environment.
