Environmental Management

Environmental Management Organization

Furukawa Electric Group promotes environmental activities based on the basic environmental philosophy. The supreme advisory body in charge of the environment who is called the “Furukawa Electric Group Environmental Committee” is promoting the environmental management. The Corporate Vice President, who is also General Manager of the Risk Management Division , serves as the chairperson, and the committee consists of the General Managers from each business division and each corporate division responsible for management. The progress is reported quarterly to the Board of Directors level.

In order to ensure that the environmental management can be implemented smoothly, the environmental issues are specifically examined cross-departmentally in the “Council of Environmental Managers” which is consisting of the environmental manager of each business division and corporate division.

Environmental Education

Environmental Education System and Environmental Education Programs

Furukawa Electric Group conducts environmental education to raise the environmental awareness of employees and to share the necessary knowledge for our environmental activities.
In fiscal 2020, the ISO 14001 internal environmental auditor training course for newly appointed personnel was held online as a social distancing measure, with 21 employees participating. At the beginning of the fiscal year, we carry out training for each level of the hierarchy, including new employee training, training for newly appointed managers, and Monozukuri staff training for mid-level staff.
During Environment Month in June 2020, each employee watched environment-related videos, discussed the environment with family and co-workers, and carried out activities to raise awareness of promotion of environmental initiatives based on what they could contribute themselves.
