Prior to constructing a plant in Mexico, MMMdM conducted surveys regarding the locations and number of mesquite trees growing within the premises, to keep these trees as they were to the greatest possible extent. Of these trees, old trees recommended to be replanted were moved to appropriate areas (at the front of the main gate, for example) for protection.


Water Resource Protection by Keeping Rainwater

Environment

Community

Objective

To protect water resources nearby MMMdM

Initiatives

Since, in manufacturing process, MMMdM will use subsurface water, which is managed by the national government as an important resource, the company creates rainwater keeping pits to make effective use of rainwater, as one of the subsurface water supply sources in the natural environmental conservation. This system helps not only to keep water resource by assisting rainwater circulation, but also to regenerate the wastelands and to promote natural conservation (greening). In addition, this pit making results in social contribution by creating jobs.

FY March 2013 Results

Soil Management by Relocating Soil within the Factory Premises

Environment

Community

Objective

To protect the natural environment through appropriate management of earth and sand

Initiatives

In line with the soil management scheme called "Material Bank," MMMdM excavates and relocates earth and sand in an appropriate manner, thereby contributing to the protection of the natural environment.

FY March 2013 Results

To construct its factory in Mexico, MMMdM developed farmland to prepare the factory site, under the concept "soil should not be brought in and out of the site." The excavated soil was used to build the foundations of the factory building, and fertile soil was relocated to the area around the boundary of the site, to create a hill displaying the bounty of nature.
