Environmental Education

Komatsu is committed to employee education with regards to good environmental practices. Under our basic framework, provision of education is divided according to two unique categories according to type; Dissemination of common knowledge falls under the oversight of the Head Office, whereas specific vocational training is managed by respective divisions.

We focused on education for upgrading of environmental internal auditors in FY2019.
We have updated our FY2014 environmental education program for newly appointed managers, which is now conducted through an e-Learning platform.
Despite the fact that we already meet the legislatively mandated quota of personnel with environment-related certification, we intend to implement further training in order to increase this number.
