Perform legal environmental assessment at all global production sites
As OMRON seeks to preserve the environment, prevent pollution of the global and local environment, it will ensure compliance with not only laws but also agreements made with municipalities and their residents in which OMRON Group companies operate. Specifically, in order to avoid or minimize environmental risks and the losses arising from such risks, the Group will keep working on environmental risk management.
In the event of an environmental accident or pollution, OMRON will promptly respond by taking appropriate measures. With the top priority on human life and safety, OMRON will work to minimize damage and restore the environment as quickly as possible. At the same time, we will ensure business continuity and work to prevent recurrence of the same problems, so as to fulfill our social responsibilities.
In fiscal 2018, there were no violations of environmental-related laws or regulations.
In many countries, especially emerging Asian nations, measures against climate change (including global warming), and environmental regulations related to resources, energy and other environmental issues are being reviewed and further strengthened.
To ensure compliance with environmental-related laws and regulations, the OMRON Group is working to strengthen a system to monitor environmental laws/regulations in place that its production sites are subject to and keep track of their revisions, and take measures.
In fiscal 2018, legal assessments by a third party with a focus on compliance with environmental-related laws/regulations were conducted at 10 production sites in Japan, Greater China, the Americas, and Europe. Upon the risks identified at the assessments, corrective actions were taken and improvements were made according to a formulated plan. These actions have been completed at a total of 38 (95%) production sites by the end of fiscal 2018.
OMRON will keep working to conduct legal assessments at all production sites.
At sites where soil and/or groundwater contamination have been confirmed, OMRON is working on decontamination in accordance with applicable laws.
