Environmental Management Promotional Structure
To engage in the protection of the global environment as a united Group, we have declared common policies and goals and developed management systems based on a common manual. We are pursuing continuous improvements with the aim of solving a variety of issues.
Organization and Promotional Structure
ROHM Group has been promoting improved and continual efforts for environmental conservation, including reduced environmental impact, by building and operating an environmental management system across the entire Group based on ISO 14001 international standard for environmental management systems.
Efforts are led by an “Environmental Conservation Committee” established at ROHM Head office, which manages the environmental impact of ROHM products, activities, and services, and recommends any points for improvement found in separate internal audits of ROHM sites horizontally to the other Group companies. The Committee also selects issues that ROHM Group must tackle in order to achieve a sustainable society, such as climate change, and actively works on them as business challenges.

The environment manager at ROHM Head office strictly evaluates and certifies the appropriateness of those self-declarations based on a common manual for maintaining a management system equivalent to that of a site certified by a third party.

Integrated Internal Environmental Audit
To confirm the effectiveness of Group companies' environmental management systems and the status of their compliance with relevant legislation, ROHM's head office audit team conducts an overall internal environmental audit once every two years through on-site visits. Other objectives of this audit are the continuous improvement of the systems and the elevation of environmental performance.
Environmental Liaison Conference
Environmental Management Responsible Officers and Environmental Managers of each site in ROHM Group come together once every two years to hold an Environmental Liaison Conference, where they share their annual targets and implementation plans. At the Conference, the attendees confirm the state of progress at each site and consider environmental issues for the Group as a whole.
In FY2019, discussions were held with a focus on CO2 emission and water consumption estimates for 2020 and forecasts for after 2020 as well as reduction measures. A decision was made to strengthen measures to reduce the environmental load of ROHM Group as a whole (i.e., improve environmental performance), and we are promoting related measures.
