Environmental Vision, Management Structures, and Education System

Environmental Vision Help conserve the global environment
by practicing sustainable manufacturing and
providing eco-conscious products and services

To make the Environmental Vision a reality, the TATSUTA Group has established the Quality and Environment
Policy. Guided by the policy, we seek to achieve
carbon neutrality by 2040, reduce the environmental impact of products and services, and promote recycling and
energy saving, among other initiatives.

Quality and Environment Policy

In keeping with the Quality and Environment Policy below, TATSUTA undertakes specific initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of products and services, promote recycling and energy saving, and prevent global warming (reduce CO2 emissions).

  1. In order to ensure that the Corporate Principles are upheld and in line with our Corporate Code of Conduct, we will implement initiatives that continuously and appropriately improve the business process, improve products and services, and promote environmental preservation.
  2. Based on the requirements for the ISO standards, we will build quality and environment management systems and by implementing these systems, comply with applicable laws and customer requirements.
  3. TATSUTA will identify risks which must be addressed and by responding to them, take up initiatives that will improve quality, prevent pollution, and preserve the environment.
  4. TATSUTA will maintain its quality and environment management systems and continuously work to improve performance through the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Action) cycle.

Environmental management structures

The TATSUTA Group’s structures for promoting environmental management systems (EMS) are composed of three main parts, with each part taking assigned roles according to the level of importance.

TATSUTA is also actively engaged in environmental conservation activities through structures for EMS that are integrated with Tatsuta Environmental Analysis Center, TATSUTA Welfare Service, Tatsuta Tachii Electric Cable, and Chugoku Electric Wire & Cable, which are located in the same site with TATSUTA Electric Wire & Cable.

Environmental education system

TATSUTA implements environmental education for all its employees in order to deepen their understanding of environmental conservation activities and thoroughly embed activity rules.

  • Education for new recruits

    New recruits receive introductory training to familiarize themselves with the Quality and Environment Policy, environmental conservation initiatives such as energy conservation and waste reduction, and related rules.

  • Specialist education

    Specialized education is carried out whenever appropriate for employees engaged in specific activities such as those subject to laws and regulations, including specially controlled industrial waste managers.

  • Participation in external seminars on the environment

    Employees participate whenever appropriate in external lectures and seminars, such as symposiums on environmental conservation and recent international trends, in order to bring back information on environmental conservation including laws, regulations, technologies, and new initiatives to the Group. In the Osaka district, the Environmental Management Promotion Committee implements workshops on the SDGs.

  • General education and awareness programs

    Education is implemented for all employees on the Quality and Environment Policy, laws, regulations, and bylaws relating to environmental targets and environmental conservation activities, as well as environmental issues that relate to TATSUTA’s businesses such as the handling of chemicals. For example, various initiatives are implemented every year in June, Japan’s Environment Month, to raise awareness of measures for energy saving. These include inviting employees of all Group companies to submit suggestions for an energy-saving awareness slogan, or inviting employees at the Kyoto Works to submit energy-saving proposals based on the theme of the month and educating them on the Quality and Environment Policy.

  • Education for internal audit personnel

    Internal audit personnel are educated through external training or by internal instructors. Audit personnel who have acquired internal qualifications are given hands-on training through participation in actual internal audits with the aim of enhancing their abilities. During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, we continued to make efforts to increase the number of audit personnel qualified in both EMS and quality management systems (QMS).
