Sharp Environmental Forum in Wuhan

Sharp Hosts 5th China Environmental Forum im Wuhan

Forum conference

In response to the growing momentum of environmental efforts in China, Sharp Corporation is holding a series of environmental forums for Chinese government officials and media executives. The fifth Sharp Environmental Forum was held in Wuhan on September 25, 2008 following earlier ones in Shanghai (May 2007), Beijing (September 2007), Guangzhou (March 2008), and Tianjin (May 2008).

The fifth event drew approximately 30 representatives from the Wuhan municipal government and media organizations to a hotel in the city.

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 and a video on the Kameyama Plant that illustrated Sharp's company-wide environmental efforts in an easy-to-understand manner. After that, an official from the Wuhan People's Government, representing the Chinese participants, introduced Wuhan'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.
