Promotion of Environmental Management
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 effectively rotates the management cycle of plan-do-check-act (PDCA) centered on the environmental management committee, which convenes semiannually to promote improvement.
Nippon Steel has adopted environmental accounting to be used as guidelines for corporate activities, and to accurately track the environmental costs and effects.
