Reducing printing paper
The Septeni Group is sharing meeting materials and in-house documents as digital data to reduce the consumption of printing paper significantly, falling 53% year on year from July 2018 to June 2019.
Use of LIMEX made primarily from limestone for business cards
LIMEX is a new material made primarily from limestone, developed by TBM Co., Ltd.
LIMEX substitutes paper and plastic without consuming wood or materials produced from oil and is attracting attention as environmental conservation is promoted in recent years.
The Septeni Group has been using LIMEX for business cards since 2019. By using business cards made of LIMEX, the Group can reduce the consumption of water by approximately 10 liters per box (100 cards) compared with the consumption of water for manufacturing business cards made from plain paper.
Approximately 20 trees and 85 tons of water are generally used to manufacture a ton of plain paper. If LIMEX is used, one ton of a product substituting paper can be produced without using any wood or water.
