Our Policy on Reducing Use of Disposable Plastic
The OLC Group is striving to reduce the use of disposable plastic in line with Our Environmental Policy.
On March 2019, we replaced the plastic straws used at some restaurants at our Theme Parks and hotels with paper straws.
With respect to items and restaurants where safety and convenience can be secured, we will continue stepping up our measures to reduce the use of plastic by adopting renewable resources, among others. We are also continuing with our efforts to recycle waste plastic through rigorous sorting.
Reducing Environmental Impact across Supply Chain
The OLC Group has in place the OLC Group Vendors Code of Conduct with the aim of fulfilling its social responsibility across the entire supply chain.
To encourage our suppliers to advance their measures for environmental protection, the Code of Conduct prescribes our efforts to reduce all kinds of environmental impact, as well as to comply with laws, regulations and other standards, for the purpose of preventing global warming and environmental contamination as well as giving consideration to biodiversity.
Furthermore, as part of our efforts aimed at reducing impact to ecosystems in the course of procurement, we have in place guidelines on the procurement of paper. The guidelines require that illegal or excessive deforestation is avoided and recommend using paper made 100% of recycled paper in the office.

Structures to Promote Environmental Action
The OLC Group has established an Environmental Action Committee to promote the environmental activities of the Group. This committee is chaired by Executive Director in charge of Social Activity Promotion Department and is responsible for planning and setting targets for the company’s environmental activities. The Environmental Action Committee is comprised of four subcommittees *. These subcommittees conduct fact-finding surveys, devise strategies for addressing environmental issues, and implement initiatives to reduce environmental impact.

Going forward, we intend to keep enhancing our environmental management structure and operate our business in harmony with the environment.
