Paying close attention to the environmental impact of business activities and working to reduce this impact will help build a sustainable society. Companies are now expected to take pro-active steps to address the global issues of global warming, natural resource depletion, and chemical contamination of soil, water and air.
In conducting business activities, developing products and providing services, the JVCKENWOOD Group monitors its impact on the environment across the entire value chain and continually strives to hold this environmental impact to a minimum. We have undertaken a wide range of measures to fulfill our responsibilities as a global company to reduce environmental burdens by sharing Basic Environmental Policy across the Group and establishing/administering an environmental management system based on international standards. Acknowledging the importance of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and Science-Based Targets (SBT), we intend to move forward in a timely fashion with feasible measures by setting and managing suitable targets, disclosing information, etc.
Basic Environmental Policy
We have established Basic Environmental Policy and shared them with all departments and employees to enable the JVCKENWOOD Group as a whole to implement eco-friendly corporate management.
Eco Promotion Plan 2020
The JVCKENWOOD Group has determined four action items based on the Environmental Vision and the Environmental Policy, and will work to accomplish the goals of the Eco Promotion Plan 2020.
Environmental management system
We have been seeking to acquire ISO14001 certification as part of constructing our environmental management system. We have obtained certification at all of our business centers and nine affiliate companies in Japan, and at all of our production companies overseas. In future, we plan to ascertain the certification status of new companies added to our Group through M&A and offer support as needed to acquire certification.
