Semiconductor & Storage Products Company da Toshiba obtém certificação integrada ISO 14001

A Toshiba Corporation (TÓKIO: 6502) anunciou hoje que sua Semiconductor & Storage Products Company (S&S Co.) obteve certificação integrada ISO 140011 de suas bases operacionais em todo o mundo no final de outubro.

A empresa de semicondutores da Toshiba vem promovendo a certificação integrada ISO 14001 desde o ano fiscal de 2007. Desde a integração da empresa de semicondutores e armazenagem, em julho de 2011, S&S Co. promoveu a certificação para todas as áreas da sua empresa.

ISO 14001 foi previamente obtido por sites individuais. Mas isto resultou em apenas uma otimização parcial das atividades ambientais, ativando uma aquisição integrada para garantir metas e padrões compartilhados. Com a nova certificação ISO 14001, a S&S Co. vai promover um sistema de gestão ambiental em suas operações e processos, incluindo produção, desenvolvimento e vendas, para garantir os seguintes objetivos:

  • Um sistema que garanta a conscientização de todo o grupo sobre a filosofia de gestão ambiental da alta gestão.
  • Melhor alocação de recursos de gestão para a preservação ambiental.
  • Uma melhora da função para alocação de metas gerais a bases individuais em áreas tais como: emissão de gás de efeito estufa e quantidades de resíduos enviados para descarte final.
  • Uma rede de informação ambiental global, interativa.

Os últimos anos viram a promulgação de várias leis e normas ambientais em todo o mundo, como as normas REACH2 da UE e a Diretiva RoHS3 que ofereceram modelos para normas semelhantes em outras regiões e países. Fortalecer seu sistema de gestão ambiental, a S&S Co. é uma forma de reforçar a rede que apoia sua conformidade com uma legislação cada vez mais complexa por meio de coleta e compartilhamento de informações.

A rede também permite à empresa compreender as atividades ambientais promovidas em cada local e transferir as melhores práticas e atividades para outros sites, considerando os requisitos e as características regionais, desenvolvendo gestão ambiental otimizada que atenda às demandas da sociedade.

Uma ferramenta-chave para otimização e desenvolvimento de uma perspectiva estratégica em toda a organização é a promoção de atividades baseadas no ciclo PDCA de Plan-Do-Check-Act (Planejar-Fazer-Verificar-Agir). Levando isso para a escala global dará apoio mais eficaz e centrado às medidas voltadas para a redução do impacto das atividades empresariais no meio ambiente.

A Semiconductor & Storage Products Company continuará a promover a consciência e atividades ambientais que contribuem para a sociedade, por meio do desenvolvimento e fornecimento dos produtos que levem em conta os impactos ambientais.

O status atual da certificação ISO 14001 é o seguinte:

Escopo:   Semiconductor and Storage Products Company, 14 locais no Japão, e 7 locais no exterior
Organizações de certificação: JACO; Organização de Auditoria e Certificação para Ambiente e Qualidade do Japão (Japan Audit and Certification Organization for Environment and Quality), e DNV BUSINESS ASSURANCE JAPAN K.K.
Data da certificação atual: 31 de outubro de 2012
 

Mais detalhes da certificação, incluindo a lista de sites certificados, podem ser encontrados no capítulo final do relatório ambiental da empresa, no seguinte site:
