Environmental Management Promotion Framework

Today, it is increasingly necessary to undertake environmental efforts on a global scale to ensure compliance with Europe's RoHS Directive and with customers' environmental requirements. Given these circumstances, we have reviewed our environmental management promotion framework and set up the Safety, Health and Environment Committee.
In collaboration with the CSR Committee, the Safety, Health and Environment Committee works towards building up our environmental management system, pushing ahead with the environmentally considered design and facilitating the shift to hazardous substance free products.

SHINNIHON KOGYO has adopted a Basic Environmental Policy. Embodying our stance and policy on environmental consideration, it provides for the course of environmental action to be taken by all employees in our Group.
