Environmental Policy and Management Structures

The Environmental, Safety and Health Subcommittee of the CSR Committee aims to practice an even higher level of management suitable to business operations of the Nissha Group. It builds and operates an environmental, safety and health management system incorporating an environmental management system based on ISO14001, a safety and health management system based on OHSAS18001, and customer requirements, and works toward continuous improvement at bases of the Nissha Group in Japan.

The subcommittee comprises an environmental and safety management representative, and subcommittee members selected from each headquarters division and site. The Environmental and Safety Management Group in Corporate General Affairs functions as secretariat and operates the subcommittee under the general supervision of the management. In basic CSR, where we aim to strengthen our foundation as a corporation, the subcommittee builds and maintains a structure for conforming to global standards such as that provided by the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC). And in strategic CSR, it identifies material issues and works to resolve them. Through these activities, the subcommittee promotes risk management in the areas of environmental, safety and health, and plays a role in corporate governance across the Nissha Group.

Our Environmental Policy and Occupational Safety and Health Policy aim for business development and the realization of a sustainable society. We work to familiarize these policies widely throughout the group via the Nissha Group intranet, and further promote the policies to all employees by posting the policies at each base of the Nissha Group.

Toward achieving the Nissha Group environmental objectives and the Nissha Group safety and health objectives, which serve as group-wide medium-term goals, each factory and organization sets its own targets, and creates and implements an action plan. Environmental targets are linked to quality targets and higher-level key performance indicators (KPI) so that they relate directly to everyday tasks.

Nissha Group sites in Japan obtain collective ISO14001 certification. Overseas sites obtain certification individually, and undertake initiatives to build and maintain a structure in conformance with global standards such as the EICC Code of Conduct as part of basic CSR activities. We plan to continue promoting activities for improving our efforts in environmental, safety and health into the future.

Continuous Improvements in the Environmental Management System (EMS)

We have extended the scope of application of our EMS to not only major production bases but also small production bases and sales bases with little impact on the environment. By dividing these EMS sites into ISO14001 certification sites and non-certified sites, and checking and correcting key management items at each location, we operate an effective EMS that sets meaningful priorities in tune with the actual circumstances of each site.

ISO14001 certification sites, which are also our major production bases, implement a unique risk assessment process based on environmental hazards, taking into account impact on the local community and the risks of a suspension in factory operations. The center of activities is assessment of positive risks, which we view as both environmental performance to be improved in sync with business targets and quality targets, and negative risks to be maintained, managed, and improved through environmental risk assessment. In fiscal year 2017, FIS Inc. was transferred into the scope of application of the Nissha Group EMS while maintaining its ISO14001 certification.

We build and operate a leaner internal audit structure since fiscal year 2016, when we combined environmental internal audits with safety and health internal audits. Our internal audits are conducted based on the EICC Code of Conduct as well as our customers’ unique codes of conduct, which are based on that of the EICC, with the aim of building a structure for conformance with EICC throughout the Nissha Group.

In fiscal year 2018, we plan to continue environmental, safety and health internal audits toward improving our performance in these areas.
