In May 1999, Nagase established its Environment Protection Committee. In July of the same year, the company's president declared the kick-off of the committee, which has since set environmental policy, built the environmental management system and coordinated our environmental preservation activities.
On April 28, 2000 we received ISO 14001 certification (No. YKA 0772685), the international standard for environmental management, from Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance. The scope of certification is expanding to Nagase Group. At present, the certification applies to following companies:
|April 28, 2000||NAGASE & CO., LTD.|
|June 7, 2005||Nagase Colors & Chemicals Co., Ltd.
(now, NAGASE-OG COLORS & CHEMICALS CO.,LTD.)
|June 7, 2005||Nagase Chemical Co., Ltd.|
|May 1, 2006||Nagase Plastics Co., Ltd.|
|May 1, 2006||Nagase Abrasive Materials Co., Ltd.|
|May 1, 2006||Nishinihon Nagase Co., Ltd.||December 12, 2012||Nagase Elex Co., Ltd.|
As of April 1, 2011, Nagase has disbanded its Environment Protection Committee and transferred activities formerly under its auspices to the Risk Management & Compliance Committee.
We intend to further strive to actively protect and improve our environment and make contributions to our society.
