The Environmental Management Office is part of the Environmental Management Department of Oji Holdings (OHD Environmental Management Office) oversees the environmental audits specified in the Group Environmental Management Regulations. We identify and reduce environmental group-wide risks to prevent environmental accidents from occurring and recurring by environmental audits.
In a drive to encourage each worksite and company to reduce environmental risks on their own, we introduced the Environmental Management System. And we utilized a unique EMS “O-EMS” as same as third-party certifications such as ISO14001.
Each worksite prepares an environmental hazard map to identify potential environmental risks. By rolling out outlines, causes, and measures of environmental accidents and other incidents that occurred within one worksite to other worksites, similar environmental risks are sure to be extracted and reduced.
We conduct annual environmental audits of all production sites in Japan and overseas to evaluate environmental risks from various perspectives and to confirm compliance with environmental laws and regulations and efforts to reduce environmental risks.
Environmental audit consists of the following:
The worksite remedies to the problems identified through environmental audits and the supervising companies, and or OHD Environmental Management Office confirmed the correction details. In fiscal 2020, we refrained from conducting on-site audits and mainly conducted document audits due to the spread of COVID-19 infection.
