JAE Group Environmental Policy
Basic PhilosophyThe JAE Group will contribute to the attainment of a prosperous, sustainable, recycling-based society by fulfilling its corporate social responsibility through environmentally friendly business activities and respect for the natural environment and biological diversity.
Basic GuidelineThe JAE Group recognizes the significance of the 21st century as "the environmental century" and is fully aware of the environmental impact caused by procurement, development, manufacturing, sales, and logistics activities relating to electronic devices, including connectors —its main product— as well as user interface-related products, electronic devices for avionics and aerospace, optical products, and panel units. Accordingly, the group will practice environmental management according to the following policies in order to help build a sustainable society:
- Establish environmental goals and targets, and execute plans for improvement. Furthermore, prevent pollution and continually improve environmental management activities through the periodic revision of these goals and targets, and applying a framework to them.
- Practice full compliance with legal requirements applicable to environmental aspects of JAE Group and other agreements made by the JAE Group, and establish voluntary standards as needed. Furthermore, strive to improve efforts to preserve the environment.
- Establish an environmental management organization and management structure headed by the Executive Officer in Charge of Environmental Management. This organization shall be responsible for ensuring that corporate regulations for environmental management are kept up to date at all times.
- Promote green procurement, striving to reduce environmental impact at the product-design stage and to reduce the use of toxic substances. Furthermore, give top priority to the "3Rs" (reduce, reuse, and recycle) in the fight against climate change, resource conservation, and waste reduction.
- Conduct periodic internal environmental audits and strive to improve environmental management systems.
- Document these environmental policies, ensure that they are known by everyone working at the JAE Group, seek to make them public outside the company, and strive to raise environmental awareness.
- Disclose JAE technologies for improving the environment and environmental-management data as necessary.
