The Ube International Environmental Cooperative Association revised its original Japanese version of the “Environmental Technology of Ube 2000” directory, to an English version titled “Environmental Technology of Ube 2002”. The 2002 directory was not issued until later in March of 2003. A Chinese version of the directory was also published and issued in March of 2003. Crediting the fact that the directory has been published in Japanese, English and Chinese, many organizations and companies from all over the world have been able to read the directory and benefit from its valuable information.
Over the past few years more companies have been added to the directory as well as other modification being made. These additions and modifications have made it necessary to publish newer versions of the directory from its original form 2002.
We are very happy to send you a copy of the 2005 directory in English, which has been published thanks to the cooperation of several companies in the City of Ube.
It is our pleasure to know that this directory has been made available to you, in hopes that it will provide you with valuable information pertaining to industry and the preservation of our environment. It is especially important for us to know that this directory may be of use to those who are in most need of implementing environmental preservation programs.
Finally, we would like to extend our gratitude to those companies that have contributed to this issue, and to all of the interested organizations that have supported us with their desires to learn more about industrial environmental prevention programs.
President of UBE IECA
