Environmental policies

Through metal recycling, ERC contributes to environmental protection efforts as well as the creation of a recycling-oriented society. Additionally, in response to environmental changes caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake, ERC’s three plants are working together to contribute to the rebuilding of impacted areas.
  1. ERC will promote environmental protection efforts and continually improve efforts to prevent environmental degradation by clearly understanding the environmental impacts on its operations and ensuring that all employees support ERC’s efforts.
  2. ERC will comply with environmental protection laws and other related commitments the company has agreed to. Further ERC will operate under self-imposed standards as necessary.
  3. To implement activities under its environmental policy, ERC will publish its policies and disseminate them to employees to promote consistent implementation and maintenance of environmental activities.
  4. To achieve the objectives of its environmental policies, ERC will set environmental targets that can be achieved within the range of technological and financial conditions. These targets and objectives will be reviewed regularly or as necessary in response to changing internal and external conditions.
  5. ERC’s environmental policy will be made available to the general public as requested.
