Environmental Management System organizational structure

We have established an environmental protection promotion system having the president as the Environmental Protection Supervisor.
The Environmental Committee, chaired by the company President and with members comprising managers in charge of each business, deliberates the activity plan based on the results of the activities and approves unified guidelines for environmental protection promotion activities at the Management Conference.
For environmental protection activities in each business, Environmental Groups chaired by managers in charge of business are established in each Business Group to plan initiatives and manage progress in line with business activities.
In addition, the Environmental Protection Promotion Committee is held on a regular basis to plan and manage environmental protection activities and evaluate the results of activities.
In addition, in order to operate the Environmental Management System in cooperation with each region, we hold "ISO Meetings" in various locations.

Operation of Environmental Management System

In efforts to appropriately implement environmental management, we have established an Environmental Management System based on the international standard ISO14001 and are continuously promoting environmental protection activities. We have received ISO14001 certification from a third-party organization at all domestic production sites.

They are setting up environmental systems considering the regional characteristics of each country, such as laws and regulations.

Results of fiscal 2020 group environmental supervision

In order to properly promote environmental protection activities, the Environmental Audit is conducted every year by the Environmental Protection Promotion Committee.
The Audit investigates the status of implementation of environmental activities at all plants and evaluate the results. In particular, in order to preemptively prevent environmental pollution, it focuses on on-site confirmation of production processes and facilities. In addition, by conducting this Audit, we are working to resolve problems and issues related to environmental burden reduction activities, and to help improve the overall system.

The Environmental Audit in fiscal 2020 evaluated the results of the environmental burden reduction activities in the Environmental Management System, legal and regulatory management, and the 11th Three-Year Environmental Action Plan.
As a result, we were able to confirm that management of relevant legal regulations and environmental pollution measures are being operated properly based on the procedures of the Environmental Management System. Yet as there is insufficient coordination between initiatives for environmental activities and business plans, fiscal 2021 will focus on policies with a higher level of effectiveness than coordinating with business plans.

Environmental communications

In order to promote environmental protection activities throughout the company, it is important for each person, from management to new employees, to correctly recognize environmental issues and to raise awareness of environmental protection. Therefore, in addition to providing environmental education by qualification, we regularly disseminate information on environmental activities through our in-house newsletter to publicize environmental initiatives. We also hold specialized education for personnel who require specialized knowledge such as laws and regulations.
Furthermore, in order for as many people as possible to understand the Noritake Group's approach to the environment, we disseminate information in this report and on our website.
