We strive to enhance our corporate value and contribute to realize a sustainable society through our business activities by paying attention to their environmental impact. In addition to complying with relevant laws and regulations, we also strive to develop products and services with a reduced environmental impact and take systematic and globally accredited steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impact throughout our entire value chain.
KIOXIA Group has formulated the KIOXIA Group’s Environmental Policy, which is our basic philosophy concerning the environment, and we have communicated this across the entire Group.
KIOXIA Group’s Environmental Policy
KIOXIA Group has set up an Environmental Planning and Promotion Group within the Production Technology Promotion Division to promote environmental management. The Environmental Planning and Promotion Group plans and proposes strategies to address social issues and company environmental measures and compiles environment-related data from workplaces and manufacturing bases within Japan and overseas. At the Environmental Management Review (chaired by the officer in charge of environment with attendees including Executive Officers) which is held every half-year, it conducts deliberations and confirms the degree of achievement of overall environmental measures. The Board of Directors discusses key issues flagged in reports from the Sustainability Committee or arising in Sustainability Strategy Meetings.
