Environmental Management

The Teijin Group announced the Declaration of Sustainable Environmental Initiatives in 2007 and is now working on a variety of environmental issues.

Basic Stance

The Teijin Group is globally expanding its wide range of businesses in the fields of materials, healthcare, and IT, and these business activities have no small impact on the earth's environment.
Consequently, The Teijin Group Global Environmental Charter was established in 1992. Subsequently, in 2007, we announced the Declaration of Sustainable Environmental Initiatives.
The Teijin Group recognizes the environmental impact of its operations and works towards finding a variety of solutions. While comitting to safety as the underlying foundation, the Teijin Group will strive to achieve a society manifesting “low carbon,” “effective materials circulation,” and “co-existence with nature,” and work towards the sustainable development of both society and the Company.

Declaration of Sustainable Environmental Initiatives

To achieve our aims to realize the goal of “living in harmony with the global environment and valuing nature and all living things on the planet”, as we have declared in our Corporate Philosophy, the Teijin Group has been active in promoting the Declaration of Sustainable Environmental Initiatives.

The Teijin Group believes that environmental management refers to reducing environmental impact over the entire life cycle of products including all processes from material procurement to production, use and disposal. We are working to integrate this with the Teijin Group’s overall management strategies, provide environmental value solutions, reduce environmental impact, conserve biodiversity, and promote environmental education and communication.

We are working to conserve energy, to use various resources effectively, to minimize emissions of chemical substances into the environment andto manage and reduce waste materials.
