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. Since fiscal year 2011, we have been operating a management system that integrates both ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications.
In fiscal year 2013, domestic group companies, IBIDEN Bussan Co., Ltd. and IBIDEN Engineering Co., Ltd. acquired OHSAS18001 certification in May and October 2013, respectively.
