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:

ScriptRock makes GuardRail, a DevOps-ready platform for configuration monitoring. Realizing we were spending way too much time digging up, cataloguing, and tracking machine configurations, we began writing our own scripts and tools to handle what is normally an enormous chore.

We named it GuardRail after its function - to allow businesses to move fast and stay sa...
In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker.
