Sharp Environmental Forum in Shenyang

Sharp Hosts 8th Environmental Forum in China

A scene from the forum

In response to the growing momentum of environmental efforts in China, Sharp is holding a series of environmental forums for Chinese government officials and media executives. The eighth Sharp Environmental Forum was held in Shenyang on June 2, 2009 following earlier ones in Shanghai (May 2007), Beijing (September 2007), Guangzhou (March 2008), Tianjin (May 2008), Wuhan (September 2008), Xian (December 2008), and Chengdu (February 2009). The eighth event drew 21 representatives from the Shenyang municipal government and media organizations.

Sharp Corporation's Nobuyuki Sugano, Executive Managing Officer and CEO China (in charge of all Sharp operations in China), opened the forum by presenting an outline of Sharp and its environmental policies. He explained Sharp's efforts to become an environmentally advanced company, as exemplified by the new LCD and solar cell manufacturing complex being constructed in Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan.

Hiroshi Morimoto, Executive Officer and Group General Manager, Environmental Protection Group, followed up with explanatory panels that illustrated Sharp's company-wide environmental efforts.

After that, an executive of Shenyang, representing the Chinese participants, introduced the city's environmental policies and offered Sharp some advice as well.

The high level of interest in environmental issues was abundantly clear as the forum came to a close with a flurry of enthusiastic questions from participants about Sharp's environmental efforts and policies.
