Environmental audits based on the Company's environmental management systems are of two types : internal audits and external audits. Their goal is to verify the status of environmental initiatives.
To implement highly independent and high-quality internal audit, we have established an internal audit structure in which a director in charge of audits appoints a team leader tasked with implementing audits. Under the team leader are auditors selected from each business division.
Internal auditors detected underlying, intrinsic problems at respective organizations, and each organization subsequently implemented corrective measures.
