Environmental Policy / The Environmental Action Program

We have defined our responsibilities toward the global environment in an Environmental Policy, so that we can contribute to a healthy environment and rich society that will be handed down to future generations.

Environmental Policy

Based on the philosophy of the Shinko Way, we contribute to the protection and improvement of the global environment by pursuing harmony between the global environment and corporate activities, through manufacturing.

Guiding Principles

  1. Accept that environmental challenges are fundamental to business continuity, and reduce our environmental impact.
  2. Seek to reduce risk to human health and the environment.
  3. Make every effort to perform our social responsibility by observing environmental regulations and standards in Japan and abroad.
  4. Strive for continuous improvement of our environmental management system in order to enhance environmental performance.
  5. Encourage our employees to contribute to global environmental conservation by tackling climate change, preserving biodiversity and using resources effectively.

We set environmental objectives to achieve this environmental policy, and this policy and the objectives are reviewed at least once a year.
