Framework

Environmental issues such as climate change are growing ever more crucial. To promote activities in the medium to long term that meet the environmental/ESG needs of its customers and other stakeholders, the Manufacturing Company Presidents’ Council, which includes the corporate director in charge of EHS, monitors and supervises progress related to environmental issues. A headquarters has been established, headed by the corporate director in charge of EHS, and promotes environmental activities across the entire Group. The Environment Council, made up of members appointed by the executives of the Group companies, sets targets related to environmental issues, monitors progress and also works to achieve its goals. Furthermore, to continuously promote our environmental activities, we have operated an environmental management system based on ISO 14001 since fiscal year 1998, primarily at our manufacturing subsidiaries. In March 2017, we acquired multi-site ISO 14001 certification for our plants and offices in Japan that had previously acquired certification separately. Coinciding with this multi-site certification, we have developed a standardized group format for environmental impact assessments, the identification of useful environmental aspects, environmental management programs and internal audit checklists. During fiscal year 2021, we established approximately 100 environmental goals for different levels across the entire Group and carried out these improvement activities. Any issues identified through these activities are reviewed by the Environment Council, reported to the Manufacturing Company Presidents’ Council and used for promoting environmental activities across the entire Group. Under such an environment management system, fiscal year 2021 was again free from environmental incidents, accidents, violations, and associated legal proceedings.
