Caring for the Global Environment

Denka undertakes the preservation of the global environment centered on the Responsible Care initiative being promoted by the global chemical industry. To fulfill our obligations of a chemical manufacturer, we conduct strict management to limit environmental burdens as well as strive for relentless technological innovations toward reducing resource and energy consumption.

Denka Signs Responsible Care Global Charter 2014

On December 9, 2014, Denka became a signatory to the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) Responsible Care Global Charter 2014, declaring its support of Responsible Care principles and commitment to practicing such principles alongside.

Fiscal 2020 Responsible Care (RC) Activity Policies (environment related)

In line with the Responsible Care Global Charter, we will engage in dialogue with stakeholders to accurately assess society’s expectations in addition to maintaining strict compliance and preventing environmental pollution. As our goal is to contribute to environmental conservation initiatives aimed at realizing a sustainable society, we will promote RC activities in all aspects of our business operations, ranging from raw materials procurement through manufacturing and storage to distribution to usage and disposal. In these ways, we will fulfill our social responsibilities.
