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.

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.

The Status of Environmental Management System

As of the end of December 2019, 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 12 locations have received certification.
TMD/ Merrivale (South Africa) was sold in February 2020 and is excluded from ISO 14001 certification organization.
