Fostering environment-conscious personnel
To promote environmental management with full employee participation, it is essential for individual employees to have a strong awareness as global citizens and to serve as environmental specialists. Based on this idea, DENSO provides environmental training by employment level, environmental technology basic training for employees responsible for product development and specialized training to develop internal environmental auditors.
During Environment Month each June, DENSO Corporation also holds Eco-Tours for visiting departments that have made significant environmental improvements, and employees involved in production participate in these tours. The aim is to introduce positive examples of environmental measures to each department in order to nurture personnel with environmental awareness. We showed new and old types of production equipment and tools to make it easier to see where environmental improvements had been made, as well as studied an example of the use of insulating materials at production facilities and reductions in CO2 emissions by improving air conditioning systems.
Furthermore, to expand environmental improvement activities to the home and different regions, we held events for employees' families and local communities in June. These events provided the opportunity to explain in simple terms environmental issues on a global scale as well as those affecting us at a more local level.
