Environmental Management Structure

Toshiba Group is promoting environmental management worldwide as a group. There are four pillars upholding our environmental management: (1) strengthening of the management structure, (2) provision of environmentally conscious products and services, (3) development of environmentally conscious manufacturing, sales and processing, and (4) promotion of communication. We take active measures to promote initiatives focused on these objectives.

The Corporate Environmental Management Office develops and implements corporate-level, important policy, strategy, and measures with the approval of senior managers and makes them fully known to all personnel of the company. Specifically, Toshiba semiannually convenes the Corporate Environmental Management Committee, a group-wide decision-making organization regarding environmental management chaired by the Corporate Environmental Officer, which consists of executive officers, environment management officers of in-house and key group companies, and overseas environmental promotion managers of corporate regional headquarters. Meetings of the Committee make proposals for environmental measures related to management, technological development, production, and sales, confirm and follow up on the progress in the Environmental Action Plan to achieve the Environmental Vision, discuss and decide the overall policy and plans for environmental management, and make the company-wide policy fully known to all managers and employees.

Furthermore, in order to enhance the implementation of actual strategies, the company convenes the Environmental Promotion Management Committee, which comprises in-house and affiliated companies' environmental promotion managers, who are in charge of environmental management at the working-level.

The following committees were organized as subgroups of the Corporate Environmental Management Committee: the ECP Promotion Committee, which promotes the development of environmentally conscious products and technologies; the Environmentally Conscious Business Operations Committee, which promotes measures to reduce the environmental impact of business activities; and the Environmental Communication Promotion Committee, which promotes internal and external communication. These committees formulate detailed plans, identify potential problems and review measures implemented to solve problems in order to promote the sharing of information among all company members. Various committees specializing in particular themes are engaged in activities in a wide range of areas under the supervision of these committees.

Enhancement of the global environmental management structure

At the global level, Toshiba Group has established corporate regional headquarters in Europe, the U.S., China and Asia-Oceania in order to collect and share information on environmental policies and regulations in each region and to provide cooperation and support for group companies in these regions in developing effective environmental strategies.

Furthermore, Toshiba Group holds meetings of the Global Environment Management Committee to share activities implemented at a global level, thereby promoting the Group's environmental management in countries around the world.

We also have an auditing system through which we provide training for local auditors who conduct the environmental audits of overseas sites.
