Received the “Yokkaichi City Environmental Activity Award” (FY2019)

In December 2019, KIOXIA Yokkaichi Plant received the "Yokkaichi City Environmental Activity Award" from Yokkaichi City, which established this award in 2015 to raise awareness about environmental conservation. Yokkaichi Plant was commended for making joint efforts with the local community and government.

Since 2006, Yokkaichi Plant has been holding on-demand environmental lectures in a few local schools. The aim is to raise awareness of global warming and other environmental problems by discussing and presenting energy-saving activities that people can do at home. The cumulative total number of attendees now exceeds 3,000.

Since 2007, Yokkaichi Plant has been collecting and selling resources, including calendars, notebooks, PET bottle caps, and empty contact lens cases. It donates the profits to administrative or nonprofit organizations (NPOs).

In 2017, Yokkaichi Plant signed the Mie Biodiversity Partnership Agreement with Yokkaichi-Nishi High School and Mie Prefecture in order to help Yokkaichi-Nishi High School with their owl protection activities by, for example, providing and installing equipment to observe owls.

Going forward, KIOXIA will continue to carry out community-based environmental preservation activities.
