Management Structures

The OLC Group’s Structures to Promote Waste Management

Recognizing environmental issues as an important managerial challenge to be addressed, our Board of Directors resolved to set “Measures to address climate change and natural disasters” and “Recycling-oriented society” as our ESG materiality, and monitor the progress made in our related plans. Our Group has established an Environmental Action Committee chaired by the Supervisor of the Corporate Strategy Planning Division  (Executive Director and Executive Officer). The committee is responsible for planning and setting targets for the Company’s environmental activities including climate change. Established under the Environmental Action Committee, the Subcommittee on Resource Recycling shares our waste management policy across our Group and strengthens collaboration. We strive to implement initiatives to reduce environmental impact by conducting fact-finding surveys, and devise strategies for reducing waste generated by our Group including single use plastics. Through the Environmental Action Committee, targets and plans regarding environment actions are reported to the Board of Directors annually.
