The Behavior Guidelines on Environmental Issues (current Environmental Action Plan) was established in June 1993, and the Aichi Steel Environmental Charter was developed in June 1996, together with which we continuously and actively aim to achieve our goals.
In light of increasing global trends to prohibit, restrict, or manage certain chemical substances in products, iIn February 2016 we revised the Aichi Steel Environmental Charter and our management structure in order to strengthen our chemical substances management.
As the overall promotion organization, the Environmental Working Group is promoting a variety of activities for environmental conservation through its four subcommittees, the Global Warning Prevention Committee and the Aichi Steel Group Environmental Committee. It is also providing guidance toward achieving our aim of all consolidated subsidiaries with manufacturing sites acquiring ISO 14001 certification.
To promote its environmental management activities, Aichi Steel has set up the "Environmental Management Rules." These Rules provide for matters concerning; 1) systems to promote environmental management; 2) compliance/management of the Basic Environment Act and other environment-related regulations; 3) advance assessments of the environmental impacts of products, raw materials, secondary materials and equipment; and 4) support and cooperation for environmental protection in society and communities.
