Innovative SmartFlower Solar Solution helps GomunoInaki with Sustainable Development
GomunoInaki, a Japanese global trading company with R&D functions that specializes in supplying rubber/plastic goods to automotive, housing, home appliances, office infrastructure, and medical industries, installed a Smartflower at their headquarters in Nagoya, Japan in March 2022.
The Smartflower, an aesthetically beautiful yet efficient and innovative solar product, was chosen by GomunoInaki to act as a symbol of their support for the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and with the hopes that more companies across Japan will see the need to adopt sustainable energy solutions.
As a respected company with over a century of history and experience, GomunoInaki believes in being an innovator and holds its community and environment in high regard. Part of its corporate motto reads, “By respecting innovation and change, we face the challenges of tomorrow”. The investment GomunoInaki has made in its first Smartflower displays its willingness to tackle the myriad of environmental and sustainable challenges that our society face and is a bold contribution to the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
“We are very happy to have the Smartflower installed at our site,” said Kimiyasu Kimura, Senior Director of GomunoInaki Co., Ltd., adding, “This charming and appealing Smartflower will act as a symbol of our commitment toward energy conservation and incorporation of reusable energy source to reach carbon neutrality by 2025.”
“It is our great pleasure to serve GomunoInaki with SmartFlower Solar, a very iconic symbol for SDGs. I am quite confident that the Smartflower at GomunoInaki will tell surrounding communities the great value of zero-carbon society as well as self-sustainable renewable energy,” said Kaoru Usami, Representing Director of BWCP.
Manufactured and produced by Boston-based company SmartFlower Solar, the Smartflower is a cutting-edge solar product that employs a multitude of intelligent features to combine efficiency and beauty into one sustainable product. The core brilliance of the Smartflower is in its dual-axis tracking system.
At sunrise, Smartflower opens its panels to the optimal 90° angle to the sun and follows the sun’s path across the sky, producing up to 40% more energy than stationary solar panels. SmartFlower Solar has installed thousands of Smartflowers worldwide, with notable clients like Adidas, Nike, Siemens, Carlsberg, and Vodafone.
“We are honored to add GomunoInaki to our global roster of blue-chip corporations. Their decision to install the Smartflower in front of their corporate headquarters is one of their visible commitments to sustainability and will also inspire and educate their customers, suppliers, and employees to incorporate sustainability initiatives in their operations and daily lives,” said Jim Gordon, CEO of SmartFlower Solar.
