As an organization, we are involved in protecting the environment, and we have gained ISO 14001 international certification for our environmental management systems.
NHK Spring certification status
We began preparations to acquire the ISO 14001 certification in 1996 and acquired the certification at our Yokohama spring plant in January 1997 before our competitors in the same industry. This was the beginning of acquiring the ISO 14001 at three plants every year until the final plant was certified in April 2001 to succeed in acquiring the certification at all of our 11 plants in Japan. Today, we have completed the renewal to the ISO 14001: 2015 version at all of the NHK Spring plants which have already acquired the ISO 14001. We will maintain this certification in the future.
