Management of Water Utilization

Utilization of Water Resources

Ascertaining water risks for corporate business activities and taking suitable countermeasures are growing in significance. The JVCKENWOOD Group continues to reduce its water usage, and water intake at production bases in particular has been on a downtrend.

We also recognize the importance of complying with laws and regulations pertaining to water quality, and no violations were committed in FY2018.
