Komatsu's Environmental and Social Activities Data


Environmental Education

The basic framework for education in the Komatsu group divides functions in a way where education of common knowledge is supervised by the Head Office and specific education, unique or distinct to occupation, is administered by respective divisions.

In FY2014, environmental education was conducted in accordance with basically the same curriculum as for FY2013. In addition, environmental education directed at newly appointed managers was implemented in FY2014. The acquisition of environment-related certificates by relevant personnel on a scheduled basis is also being promoted.
