Environmental and Energy Management System

Based on the above basic policy, we operate an environmental and energy management system to reduce environmental impact in both product manufacturing and business operations.

In terms of product manufacturing, the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Department is in charge of promoting the development of sustainable products while collecting environmental information from around the world. In terms of business activities, the General Affairs Department is responsible for managing energy, chemical substances, and waste in our facilities and equipment.

As the reduction of GHG emissions has become a global issue, we set a reduction target in July 2019 and underwent an external audit by a third-party certification body for ISO50001, the international standard for energy management systems, and received the certification in December of the same year. We aim to further reduce our environmental impact through a synergistic effect with the ISO14001 environmental management system, which we have been operating for many years.
