Implementation of Management Systems (as Integrated MS)

The SCREEN Group has obtained certification of four management systems and implements an integrated management system consisting of “Environmental management (E)”, “Health management (H)” and “Disaster prevention and Safety (S)”. We manage various risks and opportunities in a comprehensive manner. These risks and opportunities include climate change, the increasingly stringent international environmental regulations, an increasing need for products with low environmental impact, a rise in occupational safety risks as products become larger, the growing complexity in managing the health of workers as types of employment diversify, and the risk of businesses or the supply chain being interrupted due to natural disasters. In 2009 we formulated the Group’s medium-term strategy for EHS initiatives, Green Value (GV) 21, which we have been implementing since then.

Framework

In April 2017 we began executing Phase IV of GV21. As part of this program, we have formulated a new EHS framework that is based on the “promotion of CSR management with a focus on ESG,” which is one of the pillars of our new three-year medium-term management plan. In GV21 phase IV, we set a long-term goal of reducing total value chain CO2 emissions (per unit of sales) by 20% by fiscal 2026 compared with fiscal 2014, and we are implementing wide-ranging measures toward that goal. We calculated value-chain CO2 emissions by adding CO2 emissions such as those produced by SCREEN products during customer use (Scope 3) to facility CO2 emissions (Scope 1+2).
