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. Also, even the sites that have not been certified are building management systems based on these standards and are engaging in related activities. 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. Corporate Strategy Conference held in June; if necessary, the system allows for instructions by the Company president, the highest environmental officer.

Environmental Audits Adapting to the 2015 Edition of ISO 14001

In September 2015, the international standards for environmental management systems were revised. After carrying out auditor training, we conducted internal audits, and we are gradually transitioning to the revised standards at locations in Japan and overseas.

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, 2017, 56 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.

Details of related affiliated companies and business sites within each plant included in the scope of registration have been omitted.
