Dissemination of Sustainability Activities Throughout Nissui

The Sustainability Newsletter

Let’s Listen to the Voice of the Sea, an employee newsletter, is published once or twice a month as a way of disseminating Sustainable activities throughout Nissui.
The newsletter posts and shares such information as the approach to Sustainability, the progress being made by the subcommittees for each of their key issues and Sustainability events in which the employees participated. The newsletter was launched in April 2016. Each issue from the inaugural issue to the 54th issue was collected and compiled as a booklet and distributed to the Nissui Group companies. Since then, the newsletter has been distributed simultaneously to the Nissui Group companies, and in March 2022, the 119th issue was published.
