Environmental Safety Management System
In order to position and further improve safety, security, and disaster prevention as a top management priority, we established a Safety and Disaster Management Division on December 1, 2020, as an organization with strong authority directly under the president, and that specializes in this function.
Furthermore, our Global Environment and Safety Committee has been reorganized into the Safety and Disaster Management Committee and the Global Environment Committee. The Toyobo Group has established a Global Environment Promotion Committee under the Global Environment Committee to promote global environmental protection activities.
The Global Environment Promotion Committee deliberates and decides on policy for environmental protection activities, discusses and determines specific matters, and manages their progress. Committee members visit each of our offices and plants as well as our group companies in order to conduct safety and environmental assessments, and to check the status of local activities.
