Environmental management

Environmental Risk Management

We have laid out a monitoring system to prevent environmental risks from becoming a reality.

We consider environmental destruction risks to be the most significant target of crisis management for the company, and are engaged in efforts to prevent all kinds of management risks, including the environment, from occurring.
In environmental management, an environmental management supervisor acquires the latest information regarding established or revised environmental laws and regulations, and updates our list of environmental rules.
We manage the daily environmental risks based on this list of environmental rules. An environmental audit supervisor audits the compliance status during an internal audit, and our Environmental Management Committee confirms the compliance status. This is how we ensure compliance with environmental laws and regulations.

Environmental Management System

We operate our management system in accordance with ISO14001:2015.

Since acquiring certification for the environmental management international standard ISO14001 in September of 1997, IDEC has been engaged in efforts to contribute to the protection and conservation of the global environment. In July of 2007, marking the 60th anniversary of our founding, we revised our current Environment Principle. We announced our policy to aim for "sustainable development", which meets the needs of the current generation without harming the needs of future generations, and the development based on the assumption of respecting the limited global environment and the human rights, and this has led us to today.

Also, following the revision of ISO14001 in 2015, we not only revised our management system in accordance with the intention of the standard revision, but also started a management system in April of 2017 that integrated our management systems, which had been separated onto 4 sites, and comprehensively handles our entire business even including sales locations.

We remade our entire work process into a system which produces results and allows us to contribute to environmental protection by developing environmentally-friendly products and spreading these products as a manufacturer. We will continue efforts to implement a management cycle (PDCA) to increase the effect.

Environmental Management Organization

Our environmental executive officer is in charge of the environmental management system.

Environmental aspects and environmental targets are determined by the Environmental Management Committee consisting of department managers representing each function in the entire company, and are then approved by the environmental executive officer. Furthermore, in order to objectively and fairly perform internal audits of our management system, we appoint an environmental audit supervisor. Also, environmental auditors who have attended the training for internal auditors held by a certification agency perform the internal audit.

Industrial LED illumination unit - LF1D-C, LF1D-H/J

These LED illumination units have outstanding environmental resistance and energy-saving performance. With a wide variety, they achieve optimal lighting, from small machine / local lighting to large machine lighting.

Industrial LED illumination unit

 

Highly-bright LED illumination unit - LF2B

Available with universal input for worldwide applications, and 12/24V DC input model suitable for use in battery-driven devices with a significant voltage fluctuation, such as emergency equipment and solar-related devices. Can be used in a wide variety of applications while reducing environmental foot print.

Highly-bright LED illumination unit

 

LED illumination unit for low-temperature environments - LG1K

As it can instantly reach full illumination even in low-temperature environments of -40°C, the LG1K illumination unit can be turned off quickly when lighting is not needed, further reducing power usage.
*Fluorescent lighting requires time until it reaches full illumination in low-temperature environments and therefore must be kept on constantly..
