Organization to Promote Environmental Conservation
SMK Group‘s environmental conservation policies are determined by the Environmental Conservation Committee, chaired by the Officer in Charge of Environment Div., and important matters are decided by the Executive Officer’s Meeting.
Upon determination, they are deployed at all Japan and overseas works. At each business site, the Local Environmental Conservation Commit tee decides local policies, targets, and initiatives in accordance with the Group policies, targets, and initiatives taking locally specific issues into consideration and puts them into practice.
Environmental Management Systems
SMK’s environmental management systems are in accordance with ISO 14001, the international standard for EMS. SMK have obtained ISO 14001 certification for all of our Japan sites and overseas works.
The Environmental Conservation Committee shares information on revisions to laws and regulations pertaining to each business site and checks the status of compliance with laws and regulations and the existence of accidents related to the environment or ecosystems.
In the 2022 financial year, there were no violations of environment-related laws or fines in the SMK Group.
SMK request that our business partners environmental conservation activities in accordance with our Green Procurement Guidelines. Specifically, SMK ask them to promise not to use environmentally hazardous substances prohibited by SMK and to establish a system based on ISO14001. For those our business partners that have not obtained ISO 14001 certification, we visit them to check the status of their environmental conservation activities and provide guidance for improvement as necessary.
