Power Saving Measures
The Konami Group implemented "power saving work shift" as one of the voluntary power saving measures to cope with insufficient supplies of electricity.
The Konami Group also implemented measures to save electricity by turning off outdoor advertising signs, adjusting air conditioning temperatures, and limiting nonessential usage of power in offices, such as lighting, at Konami Group facilities located within the service territories of both the Tokyo Electric Power Company and Tohoku Electric Power Company. Employees have also received manuals on power saving in order to promote understanding of the necessity of conservative energy measures at home and the office, and the steps by which to implement them.
