Environmental Management System

In order to promote environmental conservation and management smoothly and steadily, NOK is working on the following company-wide system. The Central Environmental Conservation Committee, chaired by the President and Representative Director, determines the risks and opportunities involved in environmental conservation and management, as well as company-wide business policies.
The ESG Committee also reports to the Board on important issues such as priorities and outcomes of identified risks and opportunities. Substantial environmental conservation activities are promoted mainly by the company-wide Environmental Secretariat and the Energy Conservation Subcommittee under the supervision of the company-wide Environmental Conservation Supervisor, and environmental conservation activities are carried out in accordance with environmental targets and policies at each business site.
In fiscal 2021, we set up a subcommittee to deal with carbon neutrality. We will study road maps to achieve carbon neutrality and specific methods to reduce CO2 emissions, and promote measures to achieve carbon neutrality.
