Environmental management

Environmental administrative structure

Environmental PDCA

Environmental Committee

Environmental committees are held regularly to promote practical environmental improvement activities. The committee shares environmental activity policies, environmental management KPIs, environmental improvement activity plans and results, environmental improvement activities, etc., to strengthen environmental management.

Internal audit・External audit

To confirm the operational status and effectiveness of the environmental management system and laterally deploy good environmental activities practices, we conduct, an internal audit every year and undergo an external audit by the ISO14001 certification body. The results of internal and external audits reported by the Environmental Committee lead to continuous improvement of the Environmental Management System.

Environmental education

We provide environmental education to employees based on the environmental education training plan. In addition, to strengthen the Environmental Management System, we carry out regular environmental education activities, such as taking internal audit training every year, centered on on-site managers.

Examples of Initiatives

Reduction of waste emissions

To promote recycling, waste is separated correctly and the company-wide recycling rate is maintained at over 80%. We are also working on introducing new equipment and making process improvements to reduce the loss of defects during the manufacturing process.

Promoting paperless by introducing mobile tablets

We are striving towards a paperless work environment through digitizing data for package pick-up and manufacturing instructions and introducing mobile tablets. We've achieved waste reduction and business improvement by making it paperless by reducing the number of documents and halving the number of records; other effects are to be expected in the future.

Compliance with the RoHS Directive / Green Procurement

To comply with the RoHS Directive and green procurement, we examine restrictions and banned substances of materials and parts for each business segment and promote substitutions accordingly. For example, precision positioning stages are being adapted by replacing brass components with low-cadmium materials. We are planning to sell compliant products one after another, along with special order products. In addition, in terms of our corporate activities, we recognize that global environmental preservation is of the utmost importance for the earth and will act sincerely to protect and improve the global environment.

Introduction of CO2-free Electricity

We Introduced CO2-free Electricity* at seven bases, including the Head Office of SURUGA Production Platform, in April 2022. As a result, we will reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from our production bases in Japan by approximately 6,000 tons a year. That will be an 8.6% reduction in GHG emissions (Scope 1 and 2) over our entire group compared to FY2020.
*Electricity with CO2-free value derived from renewable energy power sources that do not emit CO2 during power generation
