Environmental Management System

Operation of Quality and Environmental Policy and Company-wide Environmental Management

At all domestic Kagome Group companies, we have established and implemented the Kagome Environmental Management System (KEMS). This system clearly defines responsibilities for all departments and business sites nationwide, with the President at the top, based on the Quality and Environmental Policy established in 2017.
Specifically, we have developed an environmental management plan based on the Quality and Environmental Policy, and set annual goals in order to reach the set targets. Individual departments and business sites promote environmental activities to achieve targets for each fiscal year. Results of the activities are checked regularly by top management and the head of each department and business site to set goals and an action policy for the next fiscal year.
