Structure for Promoting Environmental Conservation Measures

In September 1999, our Sanda Factory obtained ISO 14001 certification. The Fukuchiyama Factory was also certified in September 2002. We have an ongoing environmental improvement program at these two sites. We have also established an environmental management structure at the two sites. A Global Environment Committee chaired by the executive officer responsible for the environment oversees environmental management, working to reduce our impact on the community and local environment.
Furthermore, each site has established an Environmental Management Committee with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of our business activities and developing environmentally conscious products. These initiatives are reported to the ESG/SDGs Promotion Committee, chaired by the President, to enhance the effectiveness of each committee, and management reviews are conducted at the Management Meeting and meetings of other bodies to ensure continuous improvement.

Environmental Audit

Our Sanda Factory and Fukuchiyama Factory, both of which are ISO 14001 certified sites, underwent regular ISO 14001:2015 audits to verify that the environmental management system is being operated appropriately and that continuous improvements are being made.
In addition, the Sanda Factory and Fukuchiyama Factory voluntarily conduct internal environmental audits every year at all departments to confirm environmental initiatives and to ensure continuous improvement of the environmental management system.

Risk Management

We perform regular disaster drills organized by the Disaster Prevention and Pollution Control Subcommittee to prepare for situations that may have a severe impact on life, property, and our living environment.
We will continue to strengthen our life-saving drills, the initial phase of our BCP.

We conduct regular surveillance and measurement to improve matters of concern and to maintain and preserve the environment.
