Adhering to the OMRON Principles, the OMRON Group is striving to enhance its corporate value by addressing social issues and contributing to enrich the lives of people through its businesses.
As for the environmental aspects, the Group provides products and services that can contribute to protect the global environment, while also promoting environmentally conscious business activities.
Chaired by the President & CEO, the Executive Council reports, deliberates, and makes decisions on such matters as the introduction and revisions of environmental management measures and systems to be applied to the entire Group. The Council reports especially important matters to the Board of Directors. In addition, progress of environmental initiatives for the fiscal year, including sustainability goals, are reported at the Council, which are then reported to the Board of Directors. In this way, the Board of Directors monitor and oversee the progress.
We believe that an environmental management system (EMS) is the best way to engage in PDCA for environmental targets, prevent pollution, and ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations. In this context, we pursue ISO 14001 certification.
The OMRON Group Rules stipulate that all OMRON Group production centers must acquire ISO 14001 certification, and we aim to have all production centers added through M&A acquire certification within three years.
During fiscal 2021, 29 global companies (headquarters and group companies, including 37 organizations and 64 centers, of which 27 production centers obtained ISO 14001 certification) maintained ISO 14001 certification. (Acquisition rate: 100%)
We will continue to maintain ISO 14001 certification in the future.
ISO14001 certification: 37 organizations
[Production centers] 27 (Japan:13) (Overseas: 14)
[Non-production centers] 37 centers (Japan: 35)(Overseas: 2)
