La société Semiconductor & Storage Products Company de Toshiba acquiert la certification ISO 14001 intégrée

Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO : 6502) a annoncé aujourd’hui que sa société Semiconductor & Storage Products Company (S&S Co.) avait acquis la certification intégrée ISO 140011 pour sa base opérationnelle au plan mondial à la fin du mois d’octobre.

L’activité de semi-conducteurs de Toshiba travaillait dans le sens de la certification intégrée ISO 14001 depuis l’année fiscale 2007. Depuis l’intégration des activités semi-conducteurs et stockage en juillet 2011, S&S Co. encourage la certification pour tous ses domaines d'activité.

La certification ISO 14001 a déjà été acquise par certains sites individuels. Toutefois, cela n’a entraîné qu’une optimisation partielle des activités environnementales, incitant le passage à l’acquisition intégrée afin d’assurer des normes et des objectifs communs. En vertu de sa nouvelle certification ISO 14001, S & S Co. va promouvoir un système de gestion environnementale dans toutes ses activités et tous ses processus, y compris la production, le développement et la vente, pour atteindre les objectifs suivants :

  • Un système qui assure une sensibilisation au niveau du groupe dans son ensemble aux valeurs de la haute direction relativement à la gestion environnementale.
  • Une allocation optimale des ressources de gestion à la préservation de l’environnement.
  • Une amélioration de la fonction de répartition des objectifs globaux sur des bases individuelles dans des domaines tels que les émissions de gaz à effet de serre et les quantités de déchets envoyés à l’élimination définitive.
  • Un réseau interactif mondial d’informations sur l’environnement.

Ces dernières années ont vu l’adoption de plusieurs lois et règlements environnementaux dans le monde entier, par exemple le règlement-cadre de l’Union européenne REACH2 et la directive RoHS3, qui ont servi de modèles pour des réglementations similaires dans d’autres régions et pays. En renforçant son système de gestion environnementale, S & S Co. va renforcer le réseau qui prend en charge sa conformité de plus en plus complexe avec la législation par la collecte et le partage d’informations.

Le réseau permet également à l’entreprise de comprendre les activités environnementales promues au niveau de chaque site et de transférer les meilleures pratiques et activités vers d’autres sites, en tenant compte des spécificités et des besoins régionaux, et ce faisant, de développer une gestion optimisée de l’environnement qui réponde aux exigences de la société.

Un outil clé pour l’optimisation et le développement d’une perspective stratégique dans l’ensemble de l’organisation est la promotion d’activités basées sur le cycle PDCA de Plan-Do-Check-Act (« planifier, faire, vérifier, agir »). Le déploiement à l’échelle mondiale de cette méthode apportera un soutien plus efficace et ciblé aux mesures visant à réduire l’impact des activités commerciales sur l’environnement

Semiconductor & Storage Products Company continuera à promouvoir la conscience environnementale et les activités contribuant à la société par le développement et la fourniture de produits prenant en compte les impacts environnementaux.

L’état actuel de la certification ISO 14001 est :

Portée :   Semiconductor & Storage Products Company, 14 sites au Japon, et 7 sites à l’étranger
Organismes de certification : JACO ; Japan Audit and Certification Organization for Environment and Quality, et DNV BUSINESS ASSURANCE JAPAN K.K.
Date de la certification actuelle 31 octobre 2012
 

Plus de détails sur la certification, y compris la liste des sites certifiés, sont consultables dans le dernier chapitre du rapport environnemental de l’entreprise, à l’adresse suivante :

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
Sometimes I write a blog just to formulate and organize a point of view, and I think it’s time that I pull together the bounty of excellent information about Machine Learning.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...
It’s conference season and, as you might expect, Jason and I have been on the road covering a bunch of them. It’s always great to see what the disruptive players in the market are doing — and this year did not disappoint. But there is one thing that repeatedly happens that just gets under my skin: transformation-washing. As Jason explained in a Forbes article over a year ago, ‘washing’ is when a vendor (or pundit) applies a buzzword loosely in an overt attempt to attach themselves to its buzz. ...
As many know, the first generation of Cloud Management Platform (CMP) solutions were designed for managing virtual infrastructure (IaaS) and traditional applications.

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Tha...
