Environmental Activities

To contribute to the realization of a sustainable society, the Don Quijote Group promotes environmentally conscious business activities. Members of the Group vigorously strive to reduce environmental load, mainly through the installation of equipment and systems to reduce CO2 emissions and other initiatives.
These measures include automated air-conditioning systems and interior LED lighting inside stores, water-saving devices in kitchens and restrooms, 100% recycling of cardboard boxes used for deliveries, and an emphasis on acquiring used computers rather than buying them new. In addition, we actively participate in awareness campaigns that utilize retailing resources.

Energy-saving activities

At stores under the Don Quijote Group umbrella, efforts are being made to reduce CO2 emissions through the installation of the latest energy-saving equipment and systems, which keep air-conditioning systems running efficiently and automatically maintain an appropriate temperature at all times, and through a switch to power companies with smaller CO2 footprints.
Also of note, between July 2016 and June 2017, we recycled all delivery-use cardboard boxes, totaling 40,110,880kg.

Call-out to inbound tourists on heatstroke prevention

Since 2015, we have been involved in a heatstroke prevention project, organized by public and private sectors, to advise citizens and inbound tourists on ways of preventing heatstroke. In 2017, we provided blue plastic shopping bags which were printed with four ways of heatstroke prevention—a total of seven million—just during the summer at all our stores in Japan.

We also put up posters in four languages (English, Chinese, Korean and Thai) and ran a video on in-store monitors, large display screens outside stores and our website in these four languages to highlight the seriousness of heatstroke for inbound tourists who are not familiar with this illness.
