CO2 reduction also contributes to cost reduction. The NISSIN FOODS Group is reducing CO2 emissions by, for example, introducing energy-saving facilities such as LED lighting and lighting with motion sensors, installing heat pump facilities, and reusing heat energy.

To prevent fluorocarbon leakage, the Group conducts simple inspections and periodic inspections performed by external specialist organizations in accordance with the Fluorocarbon Emission Control Law. Also, we are incrementally moving away from the use of alternative fluorocarbons (HCFC refrigerants such as R-22) in order to completely eliminate their use by 2020.
NISSIN F.D. FOODS, which manufactures dry ingredients for cup-type noodles, introduced freezers that use natural refrigerants (ammonia and CO2) for its vacuum freeze driers in February 2017. As a result, all of its large freezers now use natural refrigerants.
The overseas operating companies comply with regulations, prevent environmental pollution, and engage in environmental conservation activities in accordance with the circumstances of the individual country and business site.
NISSIN FOODS VIETNAM has established the Environmental Management System (EMS) Committee and is monitoring electricity consumption, boiler steam generation, and water consumption and taking measures to reduce consumption. Indo Nissin Foods has been introducing biomass fuels, mainly palm shells. The plants in China and Indonesia have completed fuel conversion from heavy oil to natural gas. NISSIN FOODS (THAILAND) has converted plant interior and exterior lighting to LEDs. The ZHUHAI GOLDEN COAST WINNER FOOD PRODUCTS production plant recovers flash steam and reuses it in boilers. This has resulted in CO2 emissions reduction of 772 tons. NISSIN FOODS (U.S.A.) has introduced software at its offices to shift to paperless procedures and is striving to raise awareness of the environment by installing an EV recharging stand in its parking lot.
