“Protect the environment and work to conserve limited resources” is part of our management philosophy.
Bearing the importance of conserving the global environment in mind, we will conduct our operations so as to reduce environmental impact in all our business areas, thereby helping to achieve a society that can develop sustainably and a healthy global environment.
TOKYO KEIKI has contributed to society by using electronics technology to commercialize the functions of human senses, such as measurement, cognition, and control.
We have always given full consideration to the environment in the course of our business activities, but we have now reaffirmed the importance of environmental conservation on a global scale. As such, in order to pass on a rich natural environment and limited resources to the next generation, we will go one step further and work with the participation of all employees to conserve and improve the environment to the extent technically and economically possible.
- We will evaluate the environmental impact of all our business activities and the products we provide to our customers at during production, use, and disposal, and strive to save resources and energy, reduce waste, and prevent pollution.
- We will establish and maintain a PDCA cycle by setting environmental objectives and targets for these initiatives.
- In addition to complying with environmental laws and regulations, ordinances, industry codes of conduct, and agreements with local communities, we will establish and maintain independent management standards wherever possible.
- We will establish an environmental management system in which all employees participate, using audits and reviews to make improvements on an ongoing basis.
- We will provide education to all employees to improve their awareness of the environment and the environmental management system, as well as asking our affiliates and partner companies for their understanding and cooperation.
- These environmental policies shall be publicly disclosed.
Environmental policies at our plants
Our Nasu, Yaita, and Sano plants have drawn up their own environmental policies based on the company-wide policies, taking into account the characteristics of the manufacturing they perform and consideration for the surrounding environment. In order to put our basic philosophy into practice, each internal company has formulated its own environmental policies and is working actively to acquire various certifications, including ISO 14001.
ISO 14001 compliance status
The Environment Committee is in charge of company-wide environmental policy, and the Environmental Management Subcommittee has been established beneath it. The head of the Human Resources & General Affairs Department chairs both committees, and the managers of the Nasu, Yaita, and Sano plants serve as committee members.
Environmental targets and performance
The Environmental Management Subcommittee, headed by the head of TOKYO KEIKI’s Human Resources & General Affairs Department, sets targets for environmental activities, draws up environmental plans, and puts them into practice. In addition to company-wide targets, targets have also been set for each plant, with efforts ongoing at each.
New TOKYO KEIKI Group environmental targets
As part of the environmental management system, our Group has long worked to reduce its overall energy usage.
In FY 2021, we aimed to engage in management that is even more environmentally and socially conscious than ever before. The newly established Sustainability Office took the lead in re-evaluating our Group’s medium- to long-term greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction target, which was then deliberated on and approved by the Sustainability Committee. In line with the thinking behind the Japanese government’s GHG reduction target (in the industry sector) for FY 2030, our new target for FY 2030 for Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions is a 37% reduction in comparison with FY 2013.
For each plant, reduction targets are set for failure costs, electricity consumption, waste, material consumption, etc., and KPIs are set to serve as indicators for meeting these targets. By implementing a PDCA cycle to promote initiatives aimed at achieving these KPIs, we are working to reduce our environmental impact.
