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, the environmental managers of each plant have
drawn up 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.
The Group’s Environmental Management Subcommittee,
headed by the head of the 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 mediumto
long-term greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction
targets, which were then deliberated on and approved
by the Sustainability Committee. In line with the thinking
behind the Japanese government’s GHG emissions
reduction targets (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.
