Basic Policy on the Environment

In 1997, Tokyo Seimitsu established its Basic Environmental Philosophy under the concept of "Manufacturing is possible only when the global environment is conserved." This basic philosophy is expressed in our Basic Environmental Policy, and is embodied in our Basic Policy so that all employees can put it into practice in business activities. Tokyo Seimitsu conducts all of its business activities on the basis of these philosophies and policies. Through our products and business activities, we aim to reduce our electricity usage and CO2 emissions, promote resource conservation, control total waste generation and chemical substance emissions, and contribute to the achievement of a sustainable society.

Environmental Policy

Tokyo Seimitsu sets environmental targets at both of its plants, and engages in environmental management, in accordance with the Environmental Policy set by officers in charge of the environment. We promote continuous environmental conservation activities that span the entirety of development, design, production, and service.

Basic Environmental Philosophy

Recognizing environmental conservation as a important theme, Tokyo Seimitsu makes environmental conservation an integral element of all product development, design, manufacturing and service activities.

Company Environmental Policy

In all business activities, extending from manufacturing products such as semiconductor manufacturing equipment and precision measuring instruments through the provision of services, everyone at Tokyo Seimitsu must always work with the consideration for "Is this action friendly for the earth?". The goal is to reduce our impact on the earth's environment to the absolute minimum.

Environmental Policy

  1. We will resolutely drive environmental conservation activities by organizing an environmental management structure having "the Environmental Management Committee" as the top, in which all managers play the key role.
  2. We will comply with environmental laws, ordinances and agreements as well as "the Environmental Policy" and establish voluntary goals to grapple with pollution prevention and environmental conservation.
  3. We will strive to develop and improve environmentally responsible products (products contributing to energy and resource conservation, products that do not use harmful substances).
  4. We will establish environmental objectives for the following items concerning the environmental impacts caused by business activities and improve environmental performance by implementing continuous improvement and reviewing the activities by internal audit.
    1) Effective use of natural resources by energy conservation, resource conservation and reduction and recycling of wastes.
    2) Proper management of harmful substances, reduction in their use and the adoption of replacements.
    3) Prevention of the global warming through the emission control of the greenhouse gas.
  5. We will conduct training programs for all employees to raise awareness of environmental protection.
    Also, we will ask for the understanding and cooperation of suppliers in environmental conservation.
  6. We will make efforts for environmental conservation activities, including use of sustainable resources, mitigation of climate changes and conservation of biodiversity, through individual business operations, strive to achieve a better global environment and contribute to the development of society.
  7. The environmental management system applies to the activities, products, services and environmental conservation activities of the plants relating to the business activities of Semiconductor Company and Metrology Company.
  8. This environmental policy is disclosed internally and externally.
