IBIDEN has created a company-wide environmental-management system led by the president, and has also established organizations at each site of operations that are led by the each Plant Manager, and is promoting environmental management.
We are pursuing ISO14001 and OHSAS18001* certification with an in-house management system as the means to continuously improve the environmental footprint caused by the Group's activities, products and services.
Together with IBIDEN Electronics Industries Co., Ltd., IBIDEN Graphite Co., Ltd., and IBIDEN Engineering Co., Ltd. (Water Treatment Section), which are directly linked to our business activities, we obtained ISO14001 certification in January 2000 and OHSAS18001 certification in March 2003. From fiscal year 2011, we began operation of an management system that integrated ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. In fiscal year 2014, we upgraded it to the IBIDEN Management System (IMS), which integrated the entire management system including the quality management system, and launched operations.
