Environmental Activities

An Ecological Factory

General Shiga Plant is located in Ohmi Minakuchi Technopark,
an industrial district close to Lake Biwa.
At General, minimizing the impact on the surrounding natural environment one of our highest priorities. Accordingly,
we give careful consideration to our waste processing methods.
For example, we reuse nearly 100% of the waste from our production processes.
Dust and liquid waste are collected and incinerated to ensure that they are not discharged into the environment. The General Group made environmental protection a top priority early on, before it became a prominent global issue. One important effort has been to reduce the amount of toxic substances in our factories,
with our Shiga Plant leading the way.
The Group will continue to make environmental protection a top priority.
