Outlined below are the environmental protection, occupational safety and health activities being performed within the HOYA Group companies.
The HOYA Group established its “Environmental Philosophy” and “Fundamental Environmental Policies” in 1993 and “Safety and Health Philosophy” and “Fundamental Safety and Health Policies” in 2002. Under these guidelines, the Group has been promoting the environmental, occupational safety and health activities at all its business facilities both inside and outside Japan.
In 2012, the environmental, occupational safety and health management systems of the individual facilities were reviewed thoroughly in the process of obtaining a global multisite certification for those systems. Since then, the Group has been operating all its environmental protection, occupational safety and health activities in a globally integrated manner.
In October 2008, the Group´s environmental protection organization and the occupational safety and health organization were merged with each other.
Since then, with the new structure supervised by the HOYA Group Director for Environmental Protection, Occupational Safety and Health, the Group has been carrying out various activities of environmental protection and occupational safety and health.
