Komatsu's Environmental and Social Activities Enhancing Quality of Life


Pursuing Environmental Management  Promoting Environmental Activities at Group Sales and Rental Agencies

Komatsu supports the environmental activities of forklift sales agencies as well as construction machinery and rental companies through education and guidance.

The "Environmental Guidelines for Sales Agencies" comprises of guidelines and standards pertaining to environmental issues that are of direct relevance to operations at sales agencies and rental companies (such as waste treatment, waste-oil treatment, oil-and-grease management, and treatment of wastewater from vehicle washing).

Komatsu works jointly with their counterparts at various companies by visiting the sites of various sales agencies and rental companies to ensure compliance with the "Environmental Guidelines for Sales Agencies" as well as inspecting sites, realities, and actual products to implement support activities such as supervising the sites and proposing remedial actions that are tailored to each location (implemented at a total of 52 locations in FY2014).

The “Safety and Environment Newsletter”, published for the purpose of providing information related to safe environment for sales agencies and rental companies, will reach its 10th anniversary of publication in 2015 (first issue released in November 2005).

Also, since FY2012, environmental education for the managers and service personnel at the rental locations has been taking place in cooperation with the district dealers association.

As a result of the above activities, environmental awareness is higher at sales agencies and rental companies, leading to various improvement activities.
