With growing awareness of environmental issues, such as air pollution and global warming, no enterprise can hope to survive without paying proper attention to protecting the global environment. This is something that each and every one of us - crew members of Spaceship Earth - must address if we want this planet to exist in perpetuity and full of life. Our belief that an enterprise is an integral member of the local community is evidenced in the Alps Philosophy, which reads, "Alps creates new values that satisfy stakeholders and are friendly to the earth," and in one of the Alps Action Guidelines, "Alps people will preserve the natural environment and treat precious resources with great care." In our opinion, maintaining such a philosophy and guidelines is essential for any enterprise to fulfill its duties to the society it serves. Seeking harmony with nature, Alps Electric will remain committed to realizing a bright future for people around the globe.
