Environmental Initiatives

As a core of our environmental initiatives, our company has developed an environmental management system based on the international standard for environmental management, ISO 14001, and operates this system.

Our management system aims to achieve our environmental policies and focuses on the prevention of pollution in business activities and aggressive contribution to the improvement of the environment in order to contribute to sustainable growth, which aims to achieve harmony between the maintenance and improvement of the global environment and economic growth.

We are currently expanding the application of our management system from the headquarters in Tokyo to all the branch offices in Japan, including the Osaka Branch, Kanematsu Agri-Tech Corporation, Kanematsu Communications Ltd., Kanematsu Advanced Materials Corporation and further to Kanematsu Futuretech Solutions Corporation.

In addition, we will develop an environmental management system within our affiliated companies, gradually obtaining third-party certification based on the environmental management system standard, ISO 14001.
