In March 2018, KIOXIA’s domestic sites (HQ and manufacturing sites) obtained ISO 14001:2015 certification, an international standard for integrated environmental management encompassing all business processes. We underwent a renewal audit in February 2021, and successfully retained the certification.
In addition, Solid State Storage Technology Corporation (SSSTC) which joined KIOXIA Group from FY2020, has also obtained ISO 14001:2015 certification as shown in the chart below. All our manufacturing sites are now covered by ISO 14001:2015 certification.
KIOXIA will continue to actively promote the development of energy-efficient products that address the need for exponentially increasing volumes of data. We will also continue with communication activities at our state-of-the-art factories, as well as with communication about the environment that takes regional characteristics into account, and with our biodiversity conservation activities.
