Environmental Action Plan

To promote achieving the Environmental Vision and the long-term plan “Environmental CSV 2030”, HCM has determined the Environmental Action Plan, set the specific activity items and aims, and is taking initiatives accordingly.

This Environmental Action Plan formulates standardized indexes (quantitative targets and non-quantitative targets) across the HCM group that are to be implemented by manufacturing group companies and sales group companies in Japan and overseas. Each company bases their annual environmental planning on HCM Group Environmental Action Plan, and carry out their environmental activities accordingly. In October, the mid-point of the plan, we will check the progress state of each company and make sure things are going accordingly.
The following shows the medium-term targets and actions regarding the Environmental Action Plan.
