Environmental Promotion System
Based on the Environmental Philosophy and Principles, the Group has built an environmental management system that encompasses all offices and manufacturing sites both within Japan and overseas. Based on this system, nvironmental Managers supervise and manage each office and manufacturing site, and environmental activities are implemented throughout the group across all plants. At each office and manufacturing site, an environment office works on environmental activities with consideration for the differences in the various products and equipment handled at each office and manufacturing site.
The status of management system compliance, the status of system/process operations, effectiveness, and validity undergo inspection by independent certification organizations, which has led to the acquisition of ISO 14001 status.
Compliance with Laws and Regulations
Compliance with laws and own standards
As well as managing the use of chemical substances in the Company’s business activities, we check and deal with regulatory aspects of matters ranging from the purchase of raw materials to product design, manufacture, distribution, import and export, to ensure that the Company responds appropriately to recent legislative amendments relating to chemical substances both within Japan and overseas (e.g. Act on the Evaluation of Chemical Substances and Regulation of Their Manufacture, etc. and EU REACH Regulation).
Imports and exports of chemical substances may require procedures such as notifications and registrations. The Dexerials Group responds to such regulatory requirements through local sales or manufacturing subsidiaries or consulting companies.
ISO 14001 Certification Status
When the company was newly established, Dexerials Group had sought to attain ISO 14001 certification once more, resulting in five domestic sites and one overseas site being awarded certification.

Managing substances of concern
Inspection of utilization status of environment-related substances
we carry out an annual inspection of the usage status of environment-related substances, check the usage status of chemical substances including VOCs, and the preventive measures against environmental accidents. This allows us to continue our record of accident-free handling of organic solvents.
Solvent leakage response drill
Each plant carries out drills in line with its specific risk profile, and uses any shortcomings or issues identified as feedback to improve its response to leakage incidents. Repeated drills have worked so far to maintain the high level of responsiveness to leakage incidents.
At the Dexerials Group’s overseas plants, similar leakage drills are carried out periodically to improve employee skills.
