Environmental Objectives

These objectives are reviewed and revised on a yearly basis as part of our initiative to improve and protect the environment.

3rd Stage Environmental Action Plan

The Environmental Action Program is formulated for 3-year periods, while environmental activities are promoted on a continual basis.

After receiving ISO4001recognition in 2002, initial activities were implemented through FY 2004, with 3-year mid-range action plans implemented twice since.

  • 1st Stage Environmental Action Plan: FY 2005 through FY 2007
  • 2nd Stage Environmental Action Plan: FY 2008 through FY 2010

The 3rd Stage Environmental Action Plan, which started in 2011, is detailed below.
