ESH Management Data

For Constant, Efficient Improvements of ESH Activities

The Teijin Group promotes efforts to obtain certification for management system standards related to the ESH.
Furthermore, we quantitatively measure ESH-related investments/expenses and link this to efficient progress and improvements of ESH activities.

ESH-related Accounting

The Teijin Group calculates the investments, expenses, and effect of ESH activities at all group companies. The investments, expenses and effect of activities for environmental preservation, energy savings, reduced use of natural resources, and recycling are calculated with reference to the Environmental Accounting Guidelines 2005 Edition published by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan. We also calculate the investments and expenses for safety and disaster prevention, and health.
