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 FY2015 we had a specialized training course for the standards amendment of ISO14001(2015 Revision). Approximately 280 people, mainly personnel working on environmental issues, participated.

In addition, the environmental education for new executives which has been provided since FY2014, is now being conducted through an e-Learning program.

The acquisition of environment-related certificates by relevant personnel on a scheduled basis is also being promoted.
