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 :

The “Digital Era” is forcing us to engage with new methods to build, operate and maintain applications. This transformation also implies an evolution to more and more intelligent applications to better engage with the customers, while creating significant market differentiators. In both cases, the cloud has become a key enabler to embrace this digital revolution. So, moving to the cloud is no longer the question; the new questions are HOW and WHEN. To make this equation even more complex, most ...
"This week we're really focusing on scalability, asset preservation and how do you back up to the cloud and in the cloud with object storage, which is really a new way of attacking dealing with your file, your blocked data, where you put it and how you access it," stated Jeff Greenwald, Senior Director of Market Development at HGST, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance). In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing for the HGST Cloud Infrastructure Business Unit, discussed how a new approach is neces...

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

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.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
