Incinerating 400 PET bottle caps as trash produces 3150 g of CO2. These are separated and collected. We are participating in activities to sell them back to recyclers and use the profits to provide polio vaccines for children around the world. 800 caps enables the supply of one vial of vaccine. We are also collecting the pull tags from canned drinks and selling the aluminum to metals traders. We are participating in activities to donate the profits to welfare institutions. “If you throw it away, it's trash. If you separate it, it's a resource.” We have placed collection boxes in our branches, so please help out.
Colorful decorative illuminations are commonly used to decorate the inside and outside of pachinko halls on signboards to attract customers. However, the Bellagio branch design reduces the number of decorative illuminations fitted inside and outside, partly to reduce the costs of installation and maintenance, but also to prevent “light pollution” that bothers people in the area, and because of environmental concerns that make it desirable to reduce electricity consumption. We are also trying to use the minimum electrical power required for pachinko machines and in the halls outside of business hours as a measure to save electricity in all our branches.
In order to save electricity, the lighting inside and outside of out branches is being replaced by LED lighting during branch maintenance and refurbishment work.
Bellagio has designated the summer period of 3 months from July to September in which electricity consumption increases as the “cool biz” period.

We in the Bellagio Group are engaged in cleaning activities in the neighboring areas around our branches as a contribution to nearby society.
The call to engage in cleaning activities was not a top-down corporate initiative. Instead, it originated entirely with staff working in our branches, and the activity is held after gathering supporters in each branch.
In addition to the simple cleaning activity itself, the day of cleaning provides an opportunity for communication with local people, many of whom provide help or offer thanks, and employees are often showered in praise.
As part of our social action program, we have invited the Japanese Red Cross blood donation bus to come to receive blood donations.
Within Osaka Prefecture, donations are required from at least 1100 people every day. The supply of blood to people who require regular transfusions, such as cancer patients and leukemia sufferers, accounts for 83.7% of this. Blood preparations for transfusion have an expiration date. The expiration date for red blood cells is 21 days after collection, and blood loses its value with every day that passes.
We intend to continue this activity in the future with the help of Bellagio employees and also of local residents.
The Bellagio Group runs a wide range of sponsorship activities on the theme of “revitalizing Osaka.”Past results
