The roots of our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policy lie in the reduction of the impact our operations have on the Planet, through the advocation of plastics recycling.
Pantech's efforts to address global environmental problems
In recent years, various unusual weather events caused by human economic activity, such as global warming, have occurred throughout the world and have now become a threat to earth and humanity. Forests can absorb carbon dioxide, a cause of global warming, and can generate and emit oxide; however, they are continuously being lost due to illegal logging and for other reasons. Individual countries acting alone cannot deal with global environmental problems; cross-border cooperation is essential.
We, Pantech, are eager to help resolve global environmental problems, and have thought about what each of us can do toward that end. The answer was to conduct forest volunteer activities. Since 2009, because of common passion for reforestation, all members in Himalayan Green Club, an incorporated nonprofit organization, have contributed themselves to forest plantation activity in Omihachiman City, Shiga Prefecture as volunteers. However, because of aging members and instability of internal politics in the north-east Pakistan, where club members have supported since long time, resulting in the decreasing members. Himalayan Green Club has officially ended in July 2016. In October 2016, a new organization, Shiga Green Club, cooperating with members from enterprise has been founded. With the same sense of mission inheriting from Himalayan Green Club, Shiga Green Club will continue the monthly volunteer activity in the forest of Omihachiman City.
