Promotional Organization/External Auditing/Environmental Committee

Promotional System for Environmental Activities

As the ultimate deliberative body for environmental issues, we have set up the “Environmental Meeting” chaired by the President, attempting to deal with environmental problems as one of our business challenges. Moreover, we have a companywide promotional system under the Environmental Committee chaired by executive management based on ISO 14001. With the environmental technical committee sections that handle cross-organizational issues taking the lead, company-wide environmental activities have been proceeding, engaging the production, research and sales bases and major affiliate companies nationwide.
On the other hand, we have a comprehensive management system, closely cooperating with other committee organizations supervising approval and authorization, and safety and health affairs for the entire company.

External Auditing

In May 2016, we underwent external audit of ISO14001, an international standard of environmental management system. Certified site coverage involves all the manufacturing site, laboratory and sales base and main affiliate company in Japan.
As a result, we were recognized to maintain the certification by auditor’s evaluation as “Improvement” on a company-wide basis.
On the other hands, some audit exception was pointed out to be reviewed. We had accepted this result with sincerity, and are engaged in an effort to improve them.

Important environmental issues are deliberated and decided on in an environmental committee, which meets biannually in April and November. To ensure that Shimadzu's environmental management system remains appropriate and effective, the committee conducts a management review in April to deliberate environmental policies for the new fiscal year, and environmental goals and objectives.
In November, environmental improvement awards are bestowed on groups and individuals that have achieved prominent environmental improvements through daily activities within the company.
