Promoting Initiatives with Full Employee Participation

All Kobe Steel Group employees participate continually in environmental learning to raise their level of environmental awareness and ensure that they always act out of consideration for the environment. We also promote other employee environmental initiatives, such as household environmental accounting booklets (KOBELCO Eco Life Notebook) and eco-office activities.

Improving Environmental Awareness

The Kobe Steel Group Environmental Conference

Conference

The Kobe Steel Group Environmental Conference is held every year for the purpose of sharing environmental information and promoting cross-development of environmental initiatives. A total of 110 members from 56 Group companies participated in fiscal 2013. Participants shared notable positive and negative examples of environmental activities at their locations, and reviewed changes to environmental laws and regulations.

Environmental Training and Study

Since fiscal 2006 Kobe Steel has incorporated continual environmental training and study into its stratified (by office/facility organization) training program. Additionally, regular e-learning sessions are held via the company intranet so as to raise environmental awareness among employees and guarantee a thorough knowledge of environmental laws and regulations.

Promoting Environmental Qualifications

In order to strengthen environmental management and raise environmental awareness, Kobe Steel promotes acquisition of necessary environmental qualifications (such as for Pollution Control Manager or Qualified Person for Energy Management) at each of its locations.
