Our environmental management system (EMS) was previously operated independently at respective plants. Aiming for greater environmental management, however, in fiscal 2008 we newly established a Company-wide EMS, with the president at the top. We will continue to work to strengthen our environmental governance based on an environmental management structure compatible with Toyota Industries' business management structure. We will also strive to reduce environmental impacts that accompany our business activities in product development and manufacturing.
