Promoting Environmental Conservation and Safety Through Responsible Care

Practicing Environmental Management

While endeavoring to develop environmentally-friendly products, Sanyo Chemical continues to actively promote Responsible Care (RC) activities, in environmental conservation, ensuring safety and accident prevention as well. By February 2001, every factory in Nagoya, Kyoto and Kashima had obtained ISO 14001, an environmental management certificate issued by the International Organization for Standardization. Sanyo Chemical places a great deal of importance on environmental conservation, occupational safety and product stewardship. We aim to live with society and to be in harmony with the environment through environmental management by adhering to the principles of RC.
