In its corporate activities and throughout the product life cycle, Paramount Bed aims to reduce the burden on the environment.

In order to create a sustainable society in accord with the requirements of the environment, Paramount Bed Group aims in its corporate activities and throughout the product life cycle to reduce the burden on the environment.

Through products and services

Paramount Bed Group aims throughout the life cycle of its products to reduce the burden on the environment. Moreover, Paramount Bed is working to acquire the CE mark and to accommodate the RoHS directive enacted by the European Union as a regulation on hazardous materials.
Furthermore, Paramount Bed strives to enhance the efficiency of raw materials usage through steps such as the recycling of transportation jigs used for product delivery, the use of returnable containers employed in assembly routines, and the simplification of packaging materials.

Through the production process

Paramount strives as a manufacturer to use production methods that are light on the global environment. At the integrated production line of the Chiba factory a complete ban on solvent paint usage resolved the issue of volatile organic compounds (VOC) while achieving a 60% reduction in industrial waste by changing the chemical agents of the paint and a 30% reduction in electric power consumption of paint coating equipment. Moreover, at the production division an energy conservation office was established accompanied by proactive measures to reduce electric power consumption. Paramount Bed will continue in its efforts to reconcile additional production technology enhancements with further consideration of the global environment.

Through other business activities

Energy conservation activities

Operating sites of Paramount bed engage in a diversity of energy conservation measures that range from turning off the lights during work breaks and using both side of copying paper to indoor-climate control by adjustments to employees’ clothing rather than to air conditioner temperatures, and reallocation of redundant paper as material for paper recycling by outsourcing of the shredding of confidential documents.
