Semiconductor & Storage Products Company de Toshiba Adquiere la Certificación ISO 14001 Integrada

Toshiba Corporation (TOKIO: 6502) anunció hoy que su Semiconductor & Storage Products Company (S&S Co.) adquirió la certificación ISO 140011 integrada de sus bases operativas en todo el mundo a finales del mes de octubre.

El negocio de semiconductores de Toshiba ha promovido la certificación ISO 14001 integrada desde el ejercicio fiscal 2007. Desde la integración de los negocios de semiconductores y almacenamiento en julio 2011, S&S Co. ha promovido la certificación para todas las áreas de su negocio.

Anteriormente los centros individuales recibieron sus respectivas certificaciones ISO 14001. Sin embargo, el resultado fue una optimización solo parcial de las actividades ambientales, lo que urgió a pasar a la adquisición integrada para asegurar estándares y objetivos compartidos. De acuerdo con su nueva certificación ISO 14001, S&S Co. promoverá un sistema de gestión ambiental en todas sus operaciones y procesos, incluidas las operaciones de producción, desarrollo y ventas, para alcanzar los objetivos siguientes:

  • Un sistema que asegure la concientización grupal de la filosofía de gestión ambiental de la dirección.
  • Asignación óptima de los recursos de gestión a la conservación ambiental.
  • Una función mejorada para la asignación de los objetivos generales a las bases individuales en áreas, tales como las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero y las cantidades de desechos enviadas para su eliminación final.
  • Una red de información ambiental global e interactiva.

Los últimos años han visto la promulgación de varias leyes y reglamentos ambientales alrededor del mundo, como las regulaciones para el Registro, evaluación, autorización y restricción de químicos (REACH)2 y la Directiva sobre la Restricción de sustancias peligrosas (RoHS)3 de la Unión Europea, que han sido el modelo para regulaciones similares en otras regiones y países. Al fortalecer su sistema de gestión ambiental, S&S Co. reforzará la red que respalda su cumplimiento con una legislación cada vez más compleja al recopilar y compartir información.

La red también le permite a la compañía entender las actividades ambientes promovidas en cada centro y transferir las mejores prácticas y actividades a otros centros, considerando las características y requisitos regionales y, al hacerlo, desarrollar una gestión ambiental optimizada que satisface las demandas de la sociedad.

Una herramienta clave para la optimización y el desarrollo de una perspectiva estratégica en toda la organización es la promoción de actividades en función del ciclo Planificar-Hacer-Verificar-Actuar (PDCA). El llevar esto a una escala global proporcionará un respaldo más eficaz y focalizado para medidas orientadas a reducir el impacto de las actividades comerciales sobre el medio ambiente.

Semiconductor & Storage Products Company continuará promoviendo la concientización y actividades ambientes que contribuyan a la sociedad al desarrollar y suministrar productos que tomen en cuenta los impactos ambientes.

El estado actual de la certificación ISO 14001 es el siguiente:

Alcance:   Semiconductor and Storage Products Company, 14 centros en Japón y 7 en el extranjero.
Organizaciones de certificación: JACO; Organización de Auditoría y Certificación para el Ambiente y la Calidad de Japón y DNV BUSINESS ASSURANCE JAPAN K.K.
Fecha de la certificación actual: 31 de octubre de 2012
 

Se pueden encontrar más detalles de la certificación, incluida la lista de centros certificados, en el capítulo final del Informe Ambiental de la compañía, en el sitio web siguiente:

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 busin...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise.

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. Commvault can ensure protection, access and E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Digital Initiatives create new ways of conducting business, which drive the need for increasingly advanced security and regulatory compliance challenges with exponentially more damaging consequences. In the BMC and Forbes Insights Survey in 2016, 97% of executives said they expect a rise in data breach attempts in the next 12 months. Sixty percent said operations and security teams have only a general understanding of each other’s requirements, resulting in a “SecOps gap” leaving organizations u...
