Chemical Substance Management Activities

Clarion conducts thorough chemical substance management through ongoing awareness education and training activities. Moreover, we strive to reduce the output of chemical substances used in production, by switching these to ones with lower environmental impact as much as possible. Currently we work primarily to reduce solder, waste oil and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) which have higher usage and waste output.

Complying with the Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers (PRTR) Law

Clarion runs a system that tracks the amounts of chemical substances used and their waste output, even if they are used only in small amounts below the levels subject to report under the PRTR. In Fiscal 2010, although as a whole Clarion domestic operations handled 955kg of chemical substances, the amount itself was below that required to be reported under the PRTR Law and there was no particular item subject to report. We are also striving to reduce the amount of usage and waste output of chemical substances that are not subject to the PRTR Law.
