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 critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
