Environmental Report 2016
Environmental AuditsThe domestic multi-site environmental management system (*use the cursor to view definition) received an inspection, in accordance with the ISO 14001: 2004 version, for the tenth time following the acquisition of multi-site certification in August 2005. Since fiscal 2013, sales locations have been introducing remote audits using teleconferencing systems to achieve greater audit efficiency.
To determine if the environmental management system is properly conducted and maintained, the JAE Group regularly carries out internal environmental audits. Environment quality audits are also carried out to monitor the control of chemical constituents in the JAE Group's product designs and manufacturing processes.
●Results of ISO 14001 periodical audit
In fiscal 2015, the ISO 14001 certification of JAE's environmental management system was renewed. Based on the ISO 14001: 2004 standard, the entire system was audited for compliancy, effectiveness, and appropriateness within the scope of certification. JAE will continue to strive to further link environmental activities with its main business, aiming to make its activities even more effective and efficient.

●Results of Periodical Environmental Internal Audit
Fiscal 2015's periodical environmental internal audit was conducted with an emphasis placed on "legal compliance and other required categories of identifying, referencing and adherence processes," as well as "status with regard to processes to identify and respond to emergencies and other situations," based on the previous audit's results. The result of this audit found one item not in compliance, and corrective action was taken and completed.
In addition, the legal check sheet introduced two years ago lists up points for items related to on-site facilities and other areas, and has served to maintain and raise the level of knowledge of both the auditors and the audited.
Issues and points to evaluate that are common to each site are shared horizontally across the entire Group, further raising the level of management.

●Results of internal environment quality audits
Internal environmental quality audits are helping to standardize auditing levels through a mutual assessment system using in-house environmental advisors. Since fiscal 2015, they have also been conducted with the JAMP-published "Guidelines for the Management of Chemical Substances in Products" check sheet, newly introduced as a pre-audit. Results of the audit showed flawed operations, which were then corrected.
