■ Top message about the sustainable initiatives
Sustainable initiatives by a few microns coating films.
Okitsumo provides various kinds of functional paints in order to realize a sustainable society.
Only a few microns coating films are creating a new society.
We set our key issue that is “Environmental protection”, “Making quality products” “Work style reform/Gender equality” and “Connecting with the community”, and we will aim to eco-friendly and human-friendly production by solving these key issues.
■ Examples of the activities for each goals – example 1 ［ Environment ］
1. Promotion of 3R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)
We promote 3R on our production activity and effort to reduce amount of waste emission.
1．Reduction of wasteWe will reduce amount of waste by advancing the technology of production process.
A volume of waste emission per production, Target; 4% reduction in 2025 compared to 2021.
2. Reduction of environmentally hazardous substances
（Development of eco-friendly products）
By reducing environmental hazardous substances contained in products, we promote environmental conservation through our products on a global scale.
1．Developing water-based raw material―Water-based lubricative paint (From 2022)
―Water-based heat resistant paint (From 2022)
3. Activity for Carbon Neutral
We minimize energy consumption at production operation activity and promote renewable energy.
■ Examples of the activities for each goals – example 2 ［ Social ］
We promote a comfortable work environment for each and every employee from a viewpoints of human resource development, respect for diversity, and health and safety.

1. Development and expansion of products that solve environmental issue
Reduction of Greenhouse Gas by “Heat insulation paint HIP AERO”
Heat Insulation PaintHIP AERO
A coating is the only method that enables thermal- insulate any shapes.
The revolutionary new heat insulation paint with the most advanced aerogel in practical use.
CO2 decreased by 20%
Decreased by 3,600㎏ per year
□ Actual cases ① Manufacture Furnace
Inside temp. : 800℃ Surface temp. : 53℃
Hope to reduce CO2 emission volume by preventing heat loss. But a conventional insulation material couldn’t be used for its limited space.
Achieved decreasing CO2 emission volume by 20% (-3,600kg/year).
Surface temp. dropped to 46.6℃ and satisfied with the results.
Surface temp. decreased by 20℃
Energy saving・Burn injury prevention
□ Actual cases ② Steam pipe (Chemical manufacturer)
The surface of many steam pipes reached over 80℃. Unable to cover the whole pipes with the insulation materials for their complex shapes and the concern to get burnt in the work of using the materials.
The pipes could get insulated no matter what shapes they were and I’m satisfied with the effect.
The surface temp. has downed 20℃. Now we can touch the surface for several seconds without any burn injury.
Cold insulation effect
□ Actual cases ③ ：Water reserve tank (Confectionery company)
2. Appropriate management of chemical substances and provision of the information
We promptly obtain information on hazards and toxicity of raw material in order to comply with environmental law and regulation and manage it appropriately and provide to customers by GHS or SDS etc.
■ Examples of the activities for each goals – example 4 ［ Social ］
1. Contribution to social and economic development.
2. Communication with the local community
1．Show room “Okini”
We hold community studies “hometown studies” collaboration with local elementary schools.
We encourage children to experience wonder of paints to invite curiosity for a leaning.
2．Sponsoring to e-sports
We sponsor e-sports that can be enjoyed regardless of gender, race and disability.
