The J-POWER Group has introduced an environmental management system based on the ISO 14001:2004 standard of the International Organization for Standardization and the JISQ 14001:2004 standard of the Japanese Industrial Standards, at all of our business sites for conducting environmental conservation activities based on the J-POWER Group’s Environmental Vision. We are advancing efforts to improve the level of our environmental management and to strictly comply with laws and agreements.
We also actively engage in environmental communication activities with our local communities.
Improvement of Environmental Management Level
On the basis of the J-POWER Group Environmental Action Guidelines that are reviewed annually by J-POWER’s management, we draw up Environmental Action Plans, periodically review and evaluate initiatives, and revise measures to be taken, following the PDCA cycle. In this way, we work to constantly enhance environmental management.
In addition, the J-POWER Group plans and implements environmental education, using such means as online classes and e-learning, to foster a deeper awareness of environment issues and sense of personal responsibility among employees.

Full Compliance with Laws, Regulations, Agreements, and Other Rules
In order to constrain the impact of our business activities on the surrounding environment, we take appropriate steps to comply with laws, regulations, agreements, and other rules applicable to our business activities, and work to make these widely known. We also engage in ongoing efforts to improve our facilities and operations. In order to dispose of waste properly, we take measures to maintain and improve the disposal capabilities of waste disposal operators, employing waste disposal consulting firms to directly confirm the status of waste disposal by local organizations.
Responding to Environmental Incidents
Regarding the management of environmental incidents, based on our environmental management systems, we make every effort to prevent environmental incidents before they occur and to minimize harm if they do occur. We have in place a notification framework for the occurrence of environmental incidents, under which we notify local agencies concerned as well as the J-POWER Headquarters Emergency Response Team and related departments.
The J-POWER Headquarters Emergency Response Team promptly notifies top management and, in the interest of information disclosure, releases information on emergencies to the media and other relevant parties. We also devise measures to prevent recurrences. In fiscal 2020, there were two environmental incidents that were reported through the mass media.
