3R - Origins

Our company name, 3R Corporation, has come from our commitment to thoroughly carry out 3 kinds of "R" in a process of dismantling End-of-Life Vehicles. Those are;
1) Reduce - to minimize waste production
2) Reuse - to extract and reuse all available components
3) Recycle - to process raw materials into new products
This order has a significant meaning, which shows a priority to dispose waste to build up a sound material-cycle society. The order was defined in Fundamental Law for Establishing a Sound Material-Cycle Society.

Message from the President

The economic growth of the past century, founded upon mass production, mass consumption and mass disposal, has left the world at the risk of exhausting its natural resources and global warming. Therefore, it is urgent for us in the 21st century to build a sound material-cycle society.
Japanese national policies and regulations pertaining to environmental protection have become stricter in recent years due to the urgency of global environmental protection. It is one of the few areas nationwide legislatively that have become so. 3R Inc. hopes to play our part in the protection of our environment by incorporating the 3 'R's into the various stages of disposing end-of-life vehicles

Noriyuki Yamaguchi
Chairman & CEO
3R Corporation.
The 3R's stand for,
1) Reduce: the amount of waste produced
2) Reuse: all available end-of-life vehicle components
3) Recycle: raw materials and process them into new products
As proof of our dedication to environmental protection we have acquired the environmental management certificate ISO14001 in 2002 and have renewed periodically since then. 3R strongly believes in the importance of waste management industries and in this century that has been coined "the ecological century," we will work diligently to protect the environment we live in. We ask for and thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding. Yours faithfully,
