Promotion of Environmental Management
Chief Environment and Quality Officer, and Vice President
Stakeholders including investors are increasingly interested in the environmental, social and governance (ESG) of companies and their performance in relation to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Meanwhile, companies are identifying their responses to environmental and social concerns as key management concerns.
In this context, Anritsu has been addressing the five primary themes for the second stage of its three-year plan, GLP2017 Environmental Initiative, toward realizing the 2020 VISION. For one priority theme, “Provide information that meets stakeholder expectations,” we focused on improving the content of our Sustainability Reports and Anritsu Integrated Reporting. In February 2017, the content of these reports was recognized as exemplary by winning the excellence award for environmental reporting at the 20th Environmental Communication Award, hosted by the Ministry of the Environment. We also ensured full compliance with the RoHS Directive in our mainstay measuring instruments and industrial equipment products by the July 2017 deadline, which was one of our major compliance issues as well as our fourth priority theme, and we also established the related management system. Furthermore, upon the revision of ISO 14001:2015 environmental management systems, we reviewed our own system and determined it coheres more with business activities, and we began operating the revised system in January 2017. We believe that leadership by top management is indispensable for effectively implementing our management system, and under the strong leadership of our management, we will make sure that it is continuously improved.
In fiscal 2017, we will endeavor to enhance our environmental management by formulating the GLP2017 Environmental Initiative plan for the final three years to ensure that we achieve the 2020 VISION and grasp its long-term prospects toward contributing to the creation of a sustainable society.
