Kyocera Corporation has received two 2016 Environment Minister’s Awards: one at its Kyoto Ayabe manufacturing plant for global warming prevention activity and another for its part in developing a residential-use solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) co-generation system.

This is a seventh consecutive year that Kyocera has been a recipient of the award, and this latest one adds to many other environmental-related awards and third-party recognitions that the Kyocera Group has received worldwide, the company says.

This award, which was established in 1998 by Japan’s Ministry of the Environment, is presented every year in December to coincide with Global Warming Prevention Month, and is given to individuals and groups that have shown achievements in the prevention of climate change.
