We, Fujitsu Frotech Group, in the purpose of CSR practices and finally contribution to achievement of SDGs, make efforts on the environmental conservation, by identifying environmentally-related "Risks" such as climate change and environmental pollution and taking measures against them. Moreover, we not only identify "Opportunities" other than environmental risks and implement their measures, but also evaluate "relevance to supply-chain" in "Issues of Organization" and "Needs and Expectations of Interested Parties", so that we can expand our business through the environmental contribution.

Risk Management System

Through identification and measures relevant to the environmental risks and opportunities based on ISO14001 (EMS: Environmental Management System) as well as activities of company-wide risk assessment (as a category of Environment) in Risk and Compliance Committee, we establish and operate our governance system, so that we can not only control potential risks but take corrective actions against apparent risks in a rapid and proper manner.
