Environmental Management Platform
Kawasaki appoints a chief environmental officer (director responsible for environmental management), who coordinates
corporate environmental management activities and assumes full responsibility and authority for
environment-oriented issues, and maintains a corporate environmental management system. (Environmental
Management System). Kawasaki establishes three-year environmental management activities plans alongside its
medium-term business plans. Once a year, the Management Committee meets to evaluate progress
toward the targets attributable to the previous year’s activities, consider where to seek improvement, and
establish a plan for the current fiscal year (Internal Management System). To implement this plan, specific
approaches and methods are decided through the internal management system, including the Corporate
Environment Committee, which is chaired by the chief environmental officer, and the environment management
committees of the internal companies.
Similarly, we have established an energy management system for energy-related measures (Energy Management System). In accordance with Japan’s Energy Saving Law, the Chief Environmental Officer assumes the position of energy management officer, and the Corporate Energy Management Committee meets at least once a year and vigorously promotes energy-saving activities in line with the Company’s business scale.
Kawasaki has been working to build and maintain an effective environmental management system since 1994, and an energy management system since 2010. With sights set on achieving our future vision, we will consistently refine our approaches to realize improvements.
