Efforts toward Reduction of the Environmental Burden through Vending Machines

Efforts to Reduce Power Consumption

DyDo DRINCO’s constant efforts to improve energy efficiency has led to a 79.5% reduction in the annual power consumption of the major type of its vending machines from FY 2000.

In particular, in 2007, we started the full-scale introduction of vending machines with a heat pump function, which reuses the heat generated when cold beverages are cooled as a source of energy to heat hot beverages. Later, we have employed LED lighting, high-performance vacuum insulators, and other energy-saving components, significantly reducing power consumption.

    LED lighting not only saves energy but also reduces the use of environmentally hazardous substances, including mercury contained in fluorescent lights.
  • High-performance vacuum insulators

    Better insulation has enabled even more energy-efficient operation.

Green Power Certification System

In 2002, DyDo DRINCO joined the Green Power Certification System, being the first in the soft drink industry to join it. The company uses the clean energy generated by wind power, contributing to reducing about 400 tons of CO2 emissions every year.

DyDo DRINCO places a sticker on all its vending machines, hoping that as many people as possible will learn about natural energy (green power), a type of energy indispensable to the next generation.
