The entire company is involved in environmental management and quality improvement activities.

Safety and Environmental Conservation

Responsible Care (RC) is the system by which companies that manufacture or deal in chemical products ensure that environmental, health and safety precautions are observed at every stage in the product lifecycle. Hodogaya Chemical became a member of the Japan Responsible Care Council (JRCC) in 1997, setting RC philosophy, fundamental RC policies founded on the notion that protecting the environment and ensuring safety, health and quality are both the bedrock of our management philosophy and the basis of our business activities. Objectives based on RC policies are created annually, and every member of our organization is actively involved in the effort to continually improve our performance with regard to the environment, safety, health and quality.
