We implement our business activities with the basic principle of contributing to the realization of a society that can be developed continuously in harmony with the environment on the basis of our understanding that the conservation and protection of the global environment is a top priority challenge.
In the FPCO Group, Environment Management Department, a dedicated environmental organization under the aegis of the President, promotes initiatives aimed at solving environmental issues including climate change, resource utilization, waste and water usage under the supervision of the director in charge. In addition, the director in charge of the Environmental Action Office instructs related departments on improvements concerning environmental issues brought up for discussion at Corporate Management Committee (held monthly), and the Board of Directors supervises these processes. The Board of Directors also oversees the operational status of various policies on climate change, resource utilization, waste and water usage.
Under FP Corporation Eco Action 2.0, the FPCO Group has established working groups (WGs) under the product, production, logistics, sales and office sectors. These WGs proactively set various goals and implement initiatives aimed at reducing the total CO2 emissions of the FPCO Group.
We also periodically run environmental workshops for all employees on environmental themes in which there is a lot of interest, in an effort to raise environmental awareness Groupwide.
Each business site of the FPCO Group conducts internal audits every two years in compliance with the environmental management system, and efforts are made to improve the environmental management system at each site.
In conducting its business activities, the FPCO Group observes environmental laws and regulations as well as voluntary industry standards, with the aim of realizing a recycling-oriented society.
The FPCO Group understands that measures against climate change constitute a core element of business management. In accordance with our environmental management plan, FP Corporation Eco Action 50 (FPEA-50), we will establish separate working groups in the product, production, logistics, sales and office functions to set goals independently and carry out activities for meeting them. In so doing, the Group will strive to reduce its total CO₂ emissions.
The FPCO Group recognizes that the reduction of waste emissions and the proper treatment of waste are important environmental issues, given that the expansion of business activities leads to an increase in waste emissions.
In addition, the FPCO Group is aware that making proper use of resources is another important environmental issue, because existing resources are limited while more and more resources are required.
With regard to the use of water, the FPCO Group believes that it is necessary to understand the circumstances in the individual regions of its production bases and make effective use of limited resources.
We will implement appropriate management that responds to the issues regarding water resources that are specific to the individual regions and make effective use of water resources in an effort to cut our consumption of water resources.
