Introduction of Renewable Energy

Crestec's new head office building in Hamamatsu was completed in autumn of 2022.
Solar panels installed on the roof provide a portion of the site's energy needs through renewable energy.

Head Office Building Roof (Hamamatsu)

The use of renewable energy produced by the sun contributes to preserving the earth's environment by reducing the emission of greenhouse gases. Crestec will continue to actively promote the installation of more solar panels and the introduction of storage batteries with the aim of expanding power consumption through renewable energy.

Cleanup Activities in Local Communities

Various groups and associations carry out cleanup activities in local communities.
We actively participate in these activities in order to support the local communities.

33rd Welcome Sea Turtles Clean-Up Operation

19 volunteers (including family members) participated in the “33nd Welcome Sea Turtles Clean-Up Operation” held by the city of Hamamatsu. (Sunday, May 8, 2022)
