Engaging with Environmental Compliance

At HCM Group we take the environmental impact of our business activities seriously, working toward robust environmental management by imposing stricter self-management standards than those legislated.
To manage the reduction of environmental risk, we carry out regular measurements of water quality and noise levels at each business center on an ongoing basis.
Moreover, we make information about environmental laws and regulations and cases of violation available to everyone in the group in an attempt to prevent recurrence and strengthen management.
We are also specifying environmental risks in the supply chain, and in order to remove/minimize these, we are strengthening management of environmental compliance within all CSR initiatives.

Although companies across the entire HCM Group made transgressions in 2018, such as failing to apply for equipment reorganization and disposal, all incidents were dealt with quickly and all applications were completed.
Going forward, we will continue to strengthen our environmental management, and we will strive to prevent any re-occurrences of these types of issues.
No environmental penalties and fines have resulted.
