Promotion of Employees’ Health

FY2020 Initiatives

Idemitsu Hokkaido Refinery, the First Refinery in Japan Certified as “Sports Yell Company”

On January 29, 2021, Idemitsu Hokkaido Refinery became the first oil refinery in Japan to receive "Sports Yell Company 2021" certification. The "Sports Yell Company" is a system in which the Japan Sports Agency certifies companies that are actively engaged in the implementation of sports to improve their employees’ health. “Stand-up meetings” and “walk home after work” are among the refinery’s efforts to promote health, and these exercise habit stimulating activities were highly evaluated by the experts. Hokkaido Refinery is the second business unit in Idemitsu Group after Idemitsu Unitech to be certified as “Sports Yell Company”.

Hokkaido Refinery Cafeteria’s Healthy Menu Certified as “Smart Meal”

On August 1, 2021, the "Healthy Menu" provided at our Hokkaido Refinery cafeteria received 2-star certification for "Healthy Meal and Food Environment (Smart Meal) *" promoted by the Japan government. Up to this point, there are 289 offices nationwide of which the cafeteria menus have been certified as Smart Meal, and Idemitsu is the first oil company to acquire it. We believe that employees’ health is the foundation of business management. Based on this stance, we have been promoting health through programs that can easily be implemented by all employees and proven effective to gradually improve their health. “Hokkaido Refinery Smart Life Campaign” is one of those programs which consists of 3 main pillars; healthy meal, exercise habit, and quit-smoking. The "Healthy Menu" that we provide as part of health promotion activities is a nutritionally balanced meal that keeps calories to less than 630kcal. We came up with ideas such as serving appetizing vegetables dishes to make the food more filling and this idea was highly evaluated in the certification process.

  • *Smart Meal" is a system that certifies stores and business establishments that continuously provide well-balanced meal in a healthy eating environment, conducted as part of the national "Healthy Meal and Food Environment" promotion project.
