Basic Environmental Management Policy and Six Principal Initiatives

Through environmental management based on three corporate visions, Kobe Steel aims to be a leading environmental corporate group.

At Kobe Steel, we believe we have a duty to pass on a healthy ecosystem, in which all living creatures can thrive, to future generations. To this end, we have established a Basic Environmental Management Policy as well as six initiatives for implementation.

We strive to implement environmentally conscious environmental management during every stage of our operations, and have set up a dedicated Environmental Management Committee to explore and make recommendations on these six areas.

With participation by all Group employees, we are dedicated to becoming a leading environmental corporate group.

The Kobe Steel Group will continue to steadily promote environmental management.

The Kobe Steel Group implements groupwide environmental management based on a basic environmental policy consisting of three tenets: pursuing environmentally friendly manufacturing; contributing to the environment through technologies, products and services; and coexisting and cooperating with society.

Our goal is to be a corporate group that contributes to society in a variety of fields, including weight savings in transportation, energy and infrastructure, with a view toward creating a low-carbon society, while continuing to earn the trust of local communities and customers through environmental management at our many global production sites.
