Proper Management of Chemical Substances

Management of toxic chemicals

The JVCKENWOOD Group recognizes that minimizing the impact of chemical substances on people and ecosystems through proper management in response to international restrictions as one of the global companies is its corporate responsibility. Accordingly, we have been ascertaining and properly managing toxic chemicals used in our manufacturing processes, considering the use of alternative chemicals, and reviewing/improving working environments, as well as undertaking efforts with suppliers. Toxic chemical emissions in FY2017 came to 7.4 tons*, and we will be working to suitably manage and reduce emissions in future.

*Specially-controlled industrial waste in Japan only

To ensure customers can use the JVCKENWOOD Group’s products with peace of mind, we will develop, manufacture, and sell products globally that are safe for people and the environment.

Toxic chemical emissions (FY2012-2017)

Note 1) Specially-controlled industrial waste in Japan only

Note 2) The increase in 2014 is attributable to a temporary increase in polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) stemming from plant closures, etc.
