In September 2003, AKITA KAGAKU Co., Ltd. started its activities to address certification by environmental ISO14001, and was given the certification by DNV GL BUSINESS ASSURANCE JAPAN K.K., a certifying organization, in January 2005.
Since our company specializes in metal plating and surface treatment, we use many chemical with high environmental loads. Efforts to reduce or discontinue the use of chemicals which are directly connected to our business operations are extremely difficult ones.
However, we set discontinuation of solder plating containing lead as our goal and cleared it in November 2007.
While it is evident that observation of laws and regulations at various different countries will be even more difficult for companies which handle chemicals, we will continue to reinforce our activities while raising the awareness on the environment.
