Environmental Management

Environmental Management Promotion Structure

In order to contribute as an Environment and Energy Company group to the realization of a sustainable society, the Nisshinbo Group has established environmental management promotion guidelines. We have also put in place an environmental management promotion structure, led by the president of Nisshinbo Holdings Inc. as the highest environmental officer.

All sites that have acquired ISO 14001 certification are following these standards by developing PDCA cycles and promoting environmental management. In fiscal 2017, three Indonesian subsidiaries PT. Nisshinbo Indonesia, PT. Nikawa Textile Industry, and PT. Naigai Shirts Indonesia, and Nisshinbo Mechatronics India Private Limited in India all received certifications for ISO 14001:2015 standards.

Every subsidiary conducts a yearly management review overseen by its executives. An environmental management review for the entire Nisshinbo Group is implemented at the Nisshinbo Holdings Inc. Board of Directors meeting held in June. This meeting is governed by instructions from the Company president, the highest environmental officer.

Measures Related to the 2015 Edition of ISO 14001

In September 2015, the international standards for environmental management systems were revised. The deadline for compliance is September 14, 2018 and we are proceeding with conversions for compliance at our sites in Japan and other countries. As of March 2018, 49 out of 57 of our sites certified as ISO 14001 compliant had completed conversions and we forecast completion at all sites by the deadline.

The Status of Environmental Management Systems

The Nisshinbo Group is proactively working to promote its environmental management systems in accordance with the "Business Conduct Guidelines of the Nisshinbo Group," which state, "We set up environmental management systems throughout the entire Nisshinbo Group and endeavor to preserve the global environment by conserving energy and resources, promoting the reduction and recycling of waste, decreasing the emission of substances that cause global warming or environmental pollution, and taking biodiversity measures."

As of March 31, 2018, 57 sites were certified in accordance with ISO 14001. Certain operations are pursuing integrated certification in the aim of conducting environmental activities more intertwined with their business operations.

At the TMD Group, all manufacturing plants and one service department have received ISO 14001 certification. The group is also pursuing certification under the ISO 50001 standards for energy management systems, and 13 locations have received certification.
