Environmental Preservation System

To promote environmental preservation activities continually and efficiently, in each manufacturing site of KIOXIA we have established environmental preservation procedures overseen by a General Manager with clearly defined responsibilities and authority. An Environment Management Committee deliberates environmental preservation across the entire spectrum of environmental activities, including environmental management systems, environmental policies and environmental objectives. We have further established a Compliance Committee to supervise and ensure full compliance with all relevant environmental laws and ordinances.

Environmental Plant Audit System

KIOXIA Group audit teams conduct annual environmental audits of its sites based on the following principles: 3 “Zen" approach, 3 “Gen" approach, and visual control (management to watch and show) approach.

Through audits, we promote improvement in compliance with laws and regulations, measurement and management of controlled substances, and the 4S approach (sorting, straightening-up, sanitation, sweeping). These audits target eight facilities, including the legally mandated wastewater treatment facilities.
