Initiatives to Strengthen Environmental Management

Our Group is promoting environmental management system ISO 14001 certification not just in Japan but at all of our facilities around the world. We are united in our efforts to continuously reduce the burden on the environment. In fiscal 2019, TS TECH adopted ISO 50001 at all of its sites in Japan, seeking to further reduce emissions of CO2 and other gases associated with global warming. Going forward, we will continue with efforts to bolster our environmental management not only to reduce the burden on the environment but also to decrease costs by improving resource efficiency.

Internal Environmental Audits

TS TECH has established an environmental and energy audit program that consists of annual audits of each site. The audits take into account the environmental and energy impact of the sites and the results of past audits. These internal audits examine measures to reduce environmental impact and energy consumption, the effect of these measures, compliance with regulations, and the status of the administration of ISO international standards, among other items. We promote swift, proper correction of deficiencies and non-compliance items detected in audits, aiming to improve our environmental management.

Environmental Education

TS TECH launched an Environmental Experts Committee in 2015 to pursue CO2 reduction measures at its development and production sites. With the introduction of the ISO 50001 energy management system at these sites in 2019, the Committee’s functions were transferred to our energy management team, which is fine-tuning energy management, analysis, and reduction efforts for greater effectiveness. Since 2015, we have also been developing our own “energy-saving professionals” by attending seminars organized by the Energy Conservation Center of Japan and strengthening our development of personnel who specialize in energy conservation at production sites. Learning not only the basic concepts of energy conservation but also detailed facility management methods leads to opportunities to create more efficient measures. We will continue with these types of environmental education initiatives moving forward, using highly knowledgeable, experienced personnel to convey initiatives throughout the entire Group.
