As an electronics company, Brother International Corporation's
(BIC) parent company, Brother Industries Ltd. (BIL), has defined our Global Charter
that "Concern with the environment shall be the cornerstone of all operations",
and we shall develop environmental management programs as an aim to build up society
to achieve sustainable development. The "At your side" motto is applied,
as our basic stance, to conserve the global environment.
The primary reason for BIC's communication here is "to have more people know
about Brother's stance and approach toward the environment."
Various efforts are deployed to protect the global environment for the achievement
of sustainable development. These efforts start with product development and continue
through with product collection programs.
