ISO14001 Certification

Results in Acquiring Independent Certification

We acquired certification for our Kasashima site (Ishikawa prefecture) in October 1996, the month in which the ISO14001 Environmental Management System Standards were issued. After that, we expanded our certified sites. All sites and sales and maintenance service bases across Japan received certification by October 2008. In addition, an overseas affiliated company has also received certification in March 2010.
Because the Tokyo headquarters and the Tokyo Development Center were relocated to the newly-built Yokohama headquarters in October 2014, we acquired the certifications accordingly in March 2015.
