The Hitachi Koki Group has long recognized the importance of the environment and has been proactively promoting environmental protection activities. In recent years, we have further stepped up
these activities as we move closer to the realization of a recycling-based society.
The Environmental Committee, which is headed by the General Manager of the Corporate CSR and Environmental Policy Division, deliberates and makes decisions on environmental policy and targets. In addition to members from manufacturing units, Environmental Committee participants include representatives from sales units such as Japanese branch stores, and Group companies such as Hitachi Koki Sales Co., Ltd., Sankyo Diamond Industrial Co., Ltd. Overseas manufacturing affiliates have made progress in acquiring ISO 14001 certification, with six companies now certified. Manufacturing and sales units are thus working as one, and all Group companies are promoting environmental activities.
In fiscal 2015, the Company promoted vigorous environmental activities at all levels, including "Eco-products" with design for the environment, "Eco factories & offices" which help in areas such as prevention of global warming, and "Volunteer activity" with stakeholders in areas such as communication. Hitachi Koki considers environmental protection activities to be among its most important management responsibilities. We will continue promoting these activities across the Hitachi Koki Group and are confident of further improvements.
