Overview of the Eco-First System

The "Eco-First System" was created by the Ministry of the Environment in April 2008. This system involves companies promising the Minister of the Environment to conduct environmental conservation initiatives such as global warming countermeasures, waste and recycling measures, and the Minister of the Environment certifies that those companies are conducting advanced and unique business activities that lead the industry in the field of the environment.
