Business Continuity and EHS

Business Continuity and EHS Management

 Following the Great East Japan Earthquake of March 11, 2011, the SCREEN Group positioned business continuity management (BCM) as a priority issue and designated the three years from fiscal 2012 to 2014 as a period for intensive BCM improvement. From the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, the Group has integrated its previous environmental, occupational health and safety (EHS) management systems under a new Business Continuity and EHS management system.
After the transition to the holding company structure, the holding company established the SCREEN Group Business Continuity and EHS Policy as a common, Groupwide policy. SCREEN Business Support Solutions Co., Ltd., which is responsible for the Group’s shared administration service operations, has served as the secretariat for this policy and worked to implement it at Group companies.
In line with the enhancement of business continuity and EHS management, the Group is implementing BCM-related initiatives as a pillar of Phase III of the Group’s medium-term strategy for EHS initiatives, Green Value (GV) 21, Phase III.)
Under the SCREEN Group Business Continuity and EHS Policy, we will comprehensively manage the various risks of business or supply chain interruption that the Group faces, including climate change, increasingly stringent international environmental regulations, growing demand for environmentally friendly   products, rising occupational safety risk in line with larger products, more complex employee health management attendant to more diverse forms of employment, and natural disasters.

Managing the Impact of Our Businesses on Local Communities

    The Group conducts internal assessments of departments and Group companies that include monitoring of the environmental and social impact of our business activities on local communities. We strive toward the appropriate management of our impact on the environment under our EHS management system. To this end, we employ such means as employee training and facility-related countermeasures to prevent the leakage of hazardous substances into wastewater.
In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, we recorded no incidents in which our operations had negative environmental or social impacts on local communities. There were also no economic effects resulting from the relocation of business sites or changes in our businesses.


Business Continuity Management (BCM)

     The SCREEN Group has been promoting Business Continuity Management as a key CSR issue. It thereby seeks to minimize damage and ensure the continuation and early resumption of business operations in the event of natural disasters and other emergencies.
In May 2012, we formulated the Business Continuity Management Regulations, which provide guidelines on BCM promotion, management, and implementation structure. Accordingly, in the event of an emergency, such as a large-scale earthquake or outbreak of pandemic influenza, a disaster headquarters will be established headed by the President of the Holding Company.
In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014, an emergency communication system was introduced to facilitate the prompt confirmation of the safety of all Group officers and employees inside Japan as well as first response in the event of an earthquake of seismic intensity above 5-upper. Also, Survival Cards, listing earthquake survival tips, are distributed to all Group officers and employees inside Japan. Thanks to our ongoing efforts to remind employees of the basics and rules of disaster response, the SCREEN Holdings Head Office and the Hikone Plant and Taga Plant, which include manufacturing facilities for SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions Co., Ltd. and SCREEN Finetech Solutions Co., Ltd., received ISO 22301 certification from the third-party certification organization BSI Group Japan K.K.

Business Continuity and EHS Education

We are also developing Business Continuity and EHS training courses in order to integrate BCM into our Groupwide EHS management. These courses include the Basic Course for general staff and managers and the EHS Management Course for specialists, as well as individualized courses for different job categories and units.
During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014, new training programs were implemented within the framework of the EHS Management Course for obtaining Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) certification, as listed below.
We are working to further enhance training on EHS-related regulations as we continue our education programs.
During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016, 31 people participated in seminars we conducted to develop BCM drill trainers.
