Promotion of recycling, managing chemical substances,
and approaches toward energy saving.
TOK appropriately identifies risks associated with its production and sales activities, and invests management resources to secure clean environment/health/safety across the life cycle (development/production/consumption/recycling/disposal) of chemical products including photoresists for semiconductors and displays, as well as manufacturing equipment. We also continue improvement initiatives effectively to shape a sustainable society through our business.
Environmental Management Organization
To conduct business activities in line with our environmental policy, we have an organization in which managers of sites and divisions oversee and execute environmental programs under the supervision of department managers. Sites with a particularly large environmental impact have their own environmental committees that submit monthly reports to the department managers. At sites with no environmental committee, division managers are responsible for managing environmental systems and reaching targets. Reports on these activities are sent periodically to the department managers, who then issue the directives required. Through these and other measures we promote environmental conservation at all our work sites.
Contributing to society in our aim to become a corporate group that is trusted around the world, is one of the most important themes in our management plans. Accordingly, we will track our impact on the environment in all phases, from product development to procurement, production, sale, and disposal. Reducing environmental impact from our corporate activities by complying with laws and regulations, as well as our internal regulations and social norms, and balancing production with environmental conservation while preventing of pollution. We will take steps to accelerate the development of businesses in the environment and energy fields in order to contribute to the creation of energy on a global scale.
