Environmental management system (EMS)
Environmental management structure
Each of our plants has established an environmental management structure as illustrated in the diagram below. Fiscal 2019 was the third year after we transitioned to the new ISO 14001 standard, and it was a year in which we deepened our understanding of its requirements and moved forward with new activities. Each plant of Daiki Aluminium has obtained the certification and holds an ISO (EMS) Committee meeting every month to check on its progress in the management plan and discuss the need for new initiatives and other issues. In addition to external audits by a certification body, the plants implement internal audits of each other every year to identify problems and adopt good practices of other plants with the aim of creating an upward spiral in the environmental management structure of the entire Daiki Group.
We will implement activities for a further upward spiral again this fiscal year.
