Environment Conservation Structure

MEC CO., Ltd. has established an environmental management system (EMS) that conforms to ISO 14001 in order to promote ongoing environmental protection activities.

We have obtained ISO 14001 certification in all our locations in Japan; in September 2000 for the Nagaoka Factory and the Nishinomiya Factory and in July 2006 for Headquarters, R&D Center, and Tokyo Sales Office. We will continue working on improvement activities for our environmental management system and improve the management level.

Organization for environmental promotion

In our Company, the Head of the Quality Assurance Office is appointed as the Environmental Management Representative. And with the Environment Committee — consisting of committee members elected at the Secretariat and each office, including the persons responsible at the business locations — at the center, we are taking firm control of the status of progress of various activities at each office and progress of targets, and advancing them.
We are making environmental efforts under the following organization (as of April 2016).

Audit system

The status of implementation of our environmental management system is checked by internal audit and external audit by a third-party organization.

Internal audit is conducted on a periodic basis at least once a year by internal auditors who have received a specified course of education.
After an audit, internal auditors prepare an audit report, ask for reporting on corrective measures taken to the problems identified, and check the status of improvement in the next internal audit.
