We have established a framework for promoting a broad range of initiatives with the aim of contributing to environmental protection.
Environmental Management Framework
Nippon Sanso Holdings has established an environmental management framework for promoting policies decided by the Global Strategy Review Committee at its Group companies.
In line with the Group’s Rules for Environmental Management, our Environmental Management Committee from Taiyo Nippon Sanso Group, which is chaired by the individual responsible for environmental management, meets once annually. We have established an Environmental Contribution Investigation Working Group as a subsection of the Environmental Management Committee to guide our efforts to address particularly important challenges.
The Environmental Management Committee’s annual meeting formulates decisive initiatives to address issues determined by the Technological Risk Management Conference and deliberates annual activity reports and activity plans for the Company as a whole, corporate headquarters, branches, specified sites, and working groups.
Environmental Management Framework
＊ Specified sites are mixed-purpose sites—primarily production and research facilities—that are under direct divisional supervision and for which integrated process safety management is necessary.
Taiyo Nippon Sanso provides a wide range of environmental training to all employees with the aim of raising employee awareness of environmental initiatives. Our environmental training program encompasses components focusing on environmental targets, environmental laws and regulations and emergency responses, as well as training for internal auditors.
New recruits are given basic Group training for new employees to promote the understanding of basic environmental issues and encourage familiarity with the Group’s environmental initiatives and achievements.
Certification under ISO 14001
A total of 12 Nippon Sanso Holdings Group companies in Japan and 29 Group companies overseas have obtained certification under ISO 14001, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO)’s standard for environmental management systems.
