Nippon Steel promotes energy conservation and CO2 emissions reduction throughout the entire supply chain: manufacturing, transportation, and final use of products. We also actively work on innovative technology development and transfer of established technology to our overseas operations, helping them to contribute to CO2 reduction over the medium- and long-term.
SSMC is promoting management of environmental risk with the aim of continually enhancing preservation of the environment in various regions, with due consideration of environmental risks, which differ by each steelworks and factory, and with due consideration to compliance with Japan’s Air Pollution Control Act Law and other regulations. We also are engaged in reducing environmental risk throughout the Group.
Nippon Steel has built an environmental management system that includes not only its own steelworks and factories, but also its group companies in Japan and abroad. Activities to reduce environmental risks are promoted by combining internal and external audits and rotating the plan-do-check-act (PDCA) cycle.
Nippon Steel and its group companies manufactures and provides steel products with excellent functions, and thereby contributing to reducing the environmental burden throughout their entire supply chain. Specific activities include energy conservation, resource saving, and the removal of harmful substances.
