Environmental Management Promotion System
In fiscal 2011, OMRON established its new Group environmental management vision along with environmental targets. With this new vision, entitled “Green OMRON 2020,” OMRON has been promoting its environmental management throughout its Group.
Chaired by the president, the Environmental Management Council consists of group of executive officers. It is responsible for deciding on such matters as the introduction/revision of environmental management measures/systems to be applied to the entire Group. In fiscal 2011, the council decided on electricity-saving measures and targets for summer and winter in Japan. A project was also set up under the council’s direct control to promote reduction of electricity usage.
The Corporate Environmental Activity Committee meets regularly to share information on Group-wide environmental measures and promote their implementation.
Efforts to Acquire Unified EMS Certification Globally
OMRON considers the construction of an environmental management system (EMS) as the foundation for implementing environmental management. Consequently, the company has been promoting acquisition of ISO 14001 certification at each site throughout the world.
With the increasing concern for environmental issues at the global level and the need to respond to increasingly severe environmental laws/regulations, OMRON initiated efforts to acquire unified certification for the global environmental management system (G-EMS) in fiscal 2009.
To date, acquisition of unified EMS certification has been completed in Japan and Greater China. For the future, OMRON plans to expand the scope of unified EMS certification to cover Asia Pacific, the Americas, and Europe as well.
