Ninth Environmental Management Activities Plan
Coordination with Business Management and Promotion of Environmental Contribution
Kawasaki formulated its Ninth Environmental Management Activities Plan, which runs from fiscal 2017 to fiscal 2019. This plan emphasizes sustained efforts to integrate business management and environmental management, which were priorities under the Eighth Environmental Management Activities Plan. In addition, we have positioned as new key aspects a response to procurement diversification accompanying deregulation of energy supply in Japan, compliance with country emissions targets* set at the 21st Conference of Parties (COP) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and efforts to ensure appropriate disclosure and transparency in providing environmental information to institutional investors, corporate assessment organizations and other performance-tracking groups. Toward achieving Environmental Vision 2020, we will tackle key strategies related to four issues—(1) CO2 and energy cost reduction, (2) promotion of the 3Rs, (3) reduction of environmental load/promotion of resource conservation, and (4) enhancement of the Kawasaki Group environmental management system—and strive to heighten awareness as an environmentally friendly brand.
