Environmental Management

The Kyokuyo Group's Approach to Environmental Management

As a food producer, the Kyokuyo Group and all of our employees are promoting efforts to reduce the environmental impacts of our business activities in order to use marine and other resources efficiently and provide safe and reliable food products.
In promoting environmental conservation activities that consistently take into account effects on the environment, the entire Kyokuyo Group attained ISO 14001 certification, the international standard for environmental management, in December 2004.
In fisical 2017, Kyokuyo Group certfied with ISO14001 completed their certification update to ISO14001:2015.
We will promote our environmental conservation activities under our environmental management system.

Environmental Management System

We promote Environmental Conservation activities under Sustainability Committee and evaluate the suitability, adequacy and effectiveness of our environmental activities.
We also share information across the group to help formulate plans and promote improvements at each company.

Internal CSR audits are generally conducted every year at plant sites and twice every two years at office sites in order to probe a wide range of issues related to the environment, including CSR elements. If any concerns regarding external factors arise, they are included as important topics in the checklist and procedure for that year so that mutual checks can be conducted regarding the effectiveness of our activities.
