International Strategy

The East Asian market - the Yellow Sea Rim economic region


Asia is growing at a remarkable pace, and an important part of Asia is the area from coastal regions such as Dalian and Shanghai in China, Inchon and Busan in Korea, to Kyushu in Japan. This is known as "The Yellow Sea Rim". The population of the area occupies approximately six percent of the world's population. According to the Kyushu Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry, the GDP of this area accounts for five percent of the world's GDP. The amount of trade from the Yellow Sea Rim is fourteen percent of the global share.
Amita Co. has a recycling factory and a sales office for solution services in Kitakyushu and also an office in Korea. These offices are strategic spots in the Yellow Sea Rim. We utilize these offices and network to provide East Asian customers with comprehensive environmental solutions.

The Southeast Asian market

Amita group has been trading materials since the 1990s. We plan to offer Japanese environmental technologies such as the development and operation expertise for small and distributed energy generation, material recycling and pollution control.

Annual Reports

Issues we address 1: Recycling the waste of manufacturers in Asia

akbk_top002.jpgWe are expanding our recycling business in Southeast Asia, by applying 100% recycling technologies and know-how that we have developed in Japan.

AMITA BERJAYA Sustainable Resource Management Centre became operational in Malaysia in May 2017, operated by AMITA BERJAYA SDN. BHD., a joint venture between AMITA and the Malaysia-based Berjaya Group. The AMITA BERJAYA Centre recycles all waste received from businesses into alternative cement materials and supplies them to cement companies in Malaysia.

We also provide alternative fuels and materials to material industries in other countries. In cases where it is difficult to find customers for recycled materials in a country, we widen our search across Asia, utilizing our recycling business network.

We offer consulting services to enforce segregation of industrial waste, waste management and compliance with environmental laws. These services have achieved satisfactory results in Japan and they will minimize environmental risks for clients in other Asian countries.

Issues we address 2: Conservation of marine resources in Asia

amita41.jpgJapan is one of the main countries with regard to the import and consumption of seafood. Seafood consumption in China has increased dramatically in recent years, and the JoongAng Daily newspaper reports that fish consumption in Korea has doubled in the last thirty years. According to the WWF, Asian countries produce 87 percent of farmed seafood worldwide.

The AMITA Institute of Environmental Certification Co., Ltd. (AIEC) has addressed the depletion of marine resources by introducing eco-labels for the Japanese market. We earned accreditation as the first certifying body of MSC and ASC, which are globally recognized fishery certificates and aquaculture certificates respectively. We conduct Chain of Custody Certification (COC) assessments for these two eco-labels.

Fishery certification

To processors and distributors of seafood:

We at Amita group offer quality solution services related to marine eco-labels in Asia for the sustainability of the marine industry. In 2013, we are focusing on the dissemination of MSC/ASC certification in Korea. Please feel free to inquire if interested.

To potential partners:

We are seeking partners for the promotion of MSC/ASC labels on the Asian market. Please feel free to inquire if interested.

Issues that will be addressed in the near future

biomass.jpgEnergy production for Asian countries:
Small biomass facilities

In rural areas and islands, infrastructure development is relatively expensive. We offer systems to produce self-sufficient, waste-derived energy. We have conducted experimental proof of this system in the Tohoku region of Japan.

sem7.jpgPollution prevention:
Consultation from environmental regulations to facilities.

We offer the skills that Japan has developed for governments and companies who need proper regulations and facilities to prevent pollution. The minimization of environmental risk is a source of competitive advantage for companies and provides governments with an incentive for foreign investment.
