Our environmental protection measures include efforts for the achievement of a low-carbon society, the establishment of a circular economy, and the preservation of biodiversity.
The Asahi Kasei Group works to control emissions and prevent spills in order to avoid the pollution of air, water, soil, or groundwater. Measures to prevent odors include the installation of exhaust gas absorption equipment and increasing the capacity of our wastewater treatment facilities. To prevent soil and groundwater pollution, we have performed investigation and taken appropriate measures in accordance with the Soil Contamination Countermeasures Act and related regulations.
We confirm the control of effluent water based on an internal guideline issued in 2012. Release of substances regulated by the Air Pollution Control Act and the Water Pollution Control Act are maintained below the permissible limits. Effluent water volume in Kawasaki decreased as an effect of consolidation of production facilities.
