SDGs Starting with Screw Fastening HIOS Initiatives for SDGs

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted at the United Nations Summit in 2015.
The 193 UN Member States aim to achieve the goals by 2030.
The SDGs are a set of 17 goals to achieve a sustainable world and 169 specific targets to achieve them.
The SDGs pledge that no one will be left behind on the planet.
The SDGs are goals that should be addressed by society as a whole, and we are going to actively take action to solve issues.
HIOS Initiatives
As a manufacturer specializing in screw fastening, we have continued to develop products aimed at improving
the global environment and QOL (quality of life) of people since our foundation.
We will further focus on the areas that have common intentions with the 17 development goals of the SDGs.
Good Health and Well-Being
Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Since our foundation, we have developed electric screwdrivers and screws with the aim of
"improving safety and reducing physical burden of operators, as much as possible”.
Use of high-precision screws can help prevent injuries and accidents.
In addition, improved workability reduces physical and mental stress.
Our electric screwdrivers are ergonomically designed to reduce operators’ fatigue.
Moreover, our electric screwdrivers are equipped with features to reduce the operators’ mental burden,
such as a screw fastening error detecting function.
The driving part uses a brushless motor that does not emit carbon particles.
This creates a clean environment where everyone can work comfortably.
Affordable and Clean Energy
Climate Action
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Effective use of limited resources is an essential challenge for sustainable growth of manufacturing companies.
Screws with superior precision and durability are parts that can be used repeatedly.
Reliable screw removal also contributes to recycling.
The screw fastening solutions we offer are carefully selected from the shape of the screw to
the durability of the bit to eliminate component loss due to screw fastening errors.
We offer a range of electric screwdriver models that reduce heat generation and power consumption.
We also pursue resource saving and long life by eliminating disposable parts as much as possible.
As a result of the product development as above, our head office acquired BELS (Building-Housing Energy-efficiency Labeling System) Certification designated by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan.
Our office building has open areas and a roof terrace, and is energy saving, thus, making an “office friendly to people and the environment”.
Decent Work and Economic Growth
Job satisfaction and economic growth
We are working to develop devices that make screw fastening easier for everyone every day.
The “JUKUREN” electric screwdriver series enables people who have never used an electric screwdriver
to fasten screws in the same way as a skilled craftsperson.
We will change "difficult and difficult-to-learn workplaces" to "easy and easy-to-learn workplaces" and create rewarding workplaces.
Improved workability will also contribute to increase productivity.
Our products and solutions can help you in the workplace wherever screw fastening is required.
Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.
Smart IoT of electric screwdrivers enables visualization of processes that lead to increased productivity,
from production management to quality control.
Furthermore, by connecting online, we can share information with production sites around the world.
In addition, we have established a collaboration system with robot manufacturers,
various peripheral manufacturers, and robot SIers. We are also proposing automation of the screw fastening process.
Responsible Consumption and Production
Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
For over half a century, we have developed products that are environmentally friendly and safe as an effort to
improve efficiency of operations and screw fastening quality.
We have also introduced ISO 14001 for environmental management systems to
ensure that all people and products surrounding us are not adversely affected.
In addition, we have a lineup of products that are compliant with the amended RoHS Directive 2019.
We are still in the middle of our efforts; however, we will always be aware of the SDGs that we can realize
and we will continue our full commitment to corporate activities toward our goals.
