Environmental Liaison Conference

ROHM Group holds an environmental liaison Conference once every two years, where environmental management managers and personnel from each business site gather to share annual targets and implementation plans. At this meeting, the progress of each base is checked and environmental issues for the entire group are discussed.
In FY2019, the meeting discussed CO₂ emissions and water input for FY2020 and forecasts for FY2020 and beyond, as well as reduction measures for those emissions and water input. We have decided to strengthen our efforts to reduce environmental impact (improve environmental performance) throughout the Group and are taking action to address these issues.

*The event was cancelled in FY2021 due to the COVID-19.
