Environmental Management

Environmental management promotion system

Considering environmental international standard ISO14001 as its environmental management system framework, the Nidec Group promotes the acquisition, maintenance, and management of ISO14001 by its R&D, production, and other sites.

Environmental Management (EM) Committee decides the overall direction of our environmental conservation activities and implements further improvements. EM Committee consists of the Officer responsible for CSR (Committee chairman) and the persons responsible for environmental management at each site (EM Committee members); its task is to relay to and implement in all business sites environment-related information, such as substances that are under environmental restrictions, trends and developments of laws and regulations, etc., shared by EM Committee members.

In its sixth three-year medium-term environmental conservation plan (FY2019 - FY2021) launched in FY2019, Nidec aims to expand the area of its environmental management to operate its ISO14001-based environmental management system at 80% of its business bases on a consolidated sales basis.

Environmental load: Overview

To manage the environment more appropriately, Nidec constantly monitors the overall environmental load generated through its business activities. With a majority of the greenhouse gases discharged as a result of our business activities attributable to electricity and fuel consumption, our production sites’ better use of energy is the key to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
