Environmental Audit

Mutual understanding by all parties through communication is important to promoting environmental management by the HCM Group. Group companies are expanding overseas through the globalization of our business, which increases the importance of understanding each other’s position and circumstances. To that end, HCM is proactively working on environmental audit and co-operation with group companies.

The Sustainability Promotion Group conducted internal environmental audits of all its major manufacturing companies in 2019.
Until 2018, audits were carried out every four years, but in order to implement the PDCA cycle in a shorter period of time and ensure thorough compliance to it, audits have now been conducted every year since FY2019.
Environmental inspections on group companies that sell and provide services are also being carried out. From FY2020, we conducted remote inspections on 7 sales and service sites in Japan, and we will expand the scope of inspections to major production sites from FY2021.
