Promoting Group-wide ESH Management
Group ESH Management System
The Teijin Group established the Group ESH Subcommittee under the Group CSR Committee to practice integrated ESH (environment, safety, health) management. The Group ESH Subcommittee holds regular meetings twice a year to deliberate on policy, measures and activities regarding ESH management, which are then expanded within the group.
The ESH Committee members appointed for each business group serve as Chairpersons of the ESH Committee and promote ESH management for each business.
In addition, the Chairperson of the ESH Committee of each business group and the Chief Social Responsibility Officer conduct ESH audits once a year respectively. In the ESH audits, the ESH management status, any accidents occurrence and the status of countermeasures thereof 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
We conduct ESH Audits A and B in accordance with our ESH Audit Regulations, forming a double audit system. Audit A is conducted by the Chairperson of the ESH Committee for each business group and Audit B is conducted by 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.

Group ESH Education
Through the ESH assessment system, Teijin reviews and verifies the related laws and regulations together with the ESH risk related to project implementation and day-to-day matters, and endeavors to implement appropriate measures in line with compliance and risk.
Training for Internal Auditors of ESH Compliance
To enhance compliance with laws and regulations related to ESH, every year we hold a course to train group employees as internal auditors for ESH compliance. In fiscal 2016, 36 employees were newly certified as 1st-grade auditors and 15 as 2nd-class auditors, bringing the total number of employees certified to 921 since the course was introduced in 2005. Moreover, there were no occurrences of compliance violations related to ESH within the Group.
Group ESH Results Report
Every year, the Teijin Group holds the Group CSR Committee, where Group-wide EHS results and activities status are reported.
In regards the results for FY2016, the Group CSR Committee was held in March 2017 at the Tokyo head office. Reports were made on the results of ESH across the whole business group, the status of ESH activities, as well as future issues and plans, and opinions were actively exchanged.
Responding to an ESH Accident
In preparation for the occurrence of an ESH-related accident, the Teijin Group defines and enforces rules about swiftly reporting any incidents to the responsible persons within the Group.
