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 have established an environmental management system as part of our environmental management activities and we are stepping up efforts to obtain ISO 14001 certification.
In January 2000, IBIDEN was certified with the ISO 14001 together with IBIDEN Electronics Industries Co., Ltd., IBIDEN Graphite Co., Ltd., IBITECH Co., Ltd. and the water treatment segment of IBIDEN Engineering Co., Ltd., all of which are directly associated with our operations. In March 2003, we gained the OHSAS 18001* certification. In addition, IBIDEN Jushi Co., Ltd. became certified with the ISO 14000 standard.
As a result of a regular screening held in January 2011, the IBIDEN Godo Office also gained ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 certifications. We will continue to encourage efforts by the Group companies to acquire certifications.
* OHSAS:Occupational Health and Safety Assessment
In our Group, not only Domestic group companies but also Overseas group companies are working to obtain ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification.
In 2007, IBIDEN Electronics Beijing Co., Ltd. renewed its certification through an extended exam process with expanded coverage to its second plant, followed by IBIDEN Hungary's ISO 14001 certification in February of the same year. In the future, we will continue with efforts to obtain this certification for overseas group companies and to strengthen our environmental management.
In fiscal year 2012, we will work on building a management system at IBIDEN Electronics Malaysia with the aim of obtaining both ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications.
