ESH Management

Promoting Group-wide ESH Management

Group ESH Management System

The Teijin Group established the Group ESH Subcommittee under the Group CSR Committee to perform integrated ESH management. The Group ESH Subcommittee meets twice a year to deliberate on policy, measures and activities regarding ESH management, which are then expanded within the group.

In addition, the Chairperson of the ESH Committee of each business group and the Chief Social Responsibility Officer conduct audits once a year. In the audits, the ESH management status, any accidents and countermeasures status are checked, and then confirmation and guidance are provided in relation to future issues and actions required before the next audit.

ESH Auditing and Training Sessions

ESH auditing

We conduct ESH Audits A and B according to our ESH Audit Regulations that have been revised to increase prioritization and standardization. A double audit system is used involving audits by the Chairperson of the ESH Committee for each business group and the Chief Social Responsibility Officer.

As part of the audit process, each business group reports on ESH management status, any accidents, the status of countermeasures, and the status of ESH activities. This content is then audited, and confirmation and guidance is provided in relation to future issues and actions required before the next audit.
