Global Environment

The Teijin Group defines its Global Environmental Charter and Global Environmental Activity Goals in line with our corporate philosophy.

The Group has designated "climate change mitigation and adaptation" as an important issue (materiality). Accordingly, the Group is leveraging lightweight and energy-efficient technologies to contribute to the transition to a carbon-free society. At the same time, the Group is making efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its business activities.

In response to the increasingly critical water shortages and water pollution worldwide, the Teijin Group is endeavoring to reduce water consumption at business sites bearing in mind water-related risks, while promoting the efficient use of water resources.

We are working to systematically reduce emissions of hazardous chemical substances associated with our business activities and commit to preventing environmental pollution.

We promote resources recycling initiatives with a focus on reducing the amount of landfill waste.

The Teijin Group is committed to the pursuit of a society capable of sustainable development. The Group considers biodiversity and strives to reduce environmental impact throughout the entire life cycle of its products, from raw material procurement to production and product utilization, in order to realize its corporate philosophy of "We place the highest priority on safety and the preservation of our natural environment."

As a mechanism to minimize its impact on the environment, the Teijin Group encourages its business sites and plants to obtain the ISO 14001 certification, an international standard related to environmental management.
