We have acquired certification at 5 business establishments in Japan, and 19 business establishments overseas.
Starting in FY2002, we introduced environmental accounting. In our business activities, we periodically ascertain costs spent on environmental preservation, and the resulting preservation and economic effects. This is done by referring to Environmental Accounting Guidelines issued by the Ministry of the Environment in Japan, and the results and data are used to develop active measures to preserve the environment.
We appoint auditors, from among qualified employees who have been certified in-house, and conduct an internal environment and safety audit once every year. This is done in order to check compliance with laws and regulations relating to environment and safety, and the effectiveness of our environmental management system and occupational safety and health management system. In addition, we strive to ensure comprehensive environmental preservation by having the officer in charge of environment and safety conduct environment and safety inspection of business establishments in Japan, as well as overseas production and distribution bases. As part of these efforts, we also check the management situation of environment-related equipment, production sites, waste storage areas, chemical substance handling sites, and other relevant factors.
