Responsible Care Department specialists with expertise, experience and auditing capabilities regularly collaborate with executive officers to audit Responsible Care initiatives at Group companies. DIC’s president and CEO and its executive vice president also take part in ESH audits at numerous sites each year to enhance Responsible Care performance across the DIC Group.
Overseas, Responsible Care Department specialists and regional ESH officers assess the progress of efforts at production sites and work together to enhance the effectiveness of Responsible Care initiatives.

In Japan, Responsible Care Department specialists have audited the Responsible Care efforts of domestic consolidated subsidiaries since fiscal year 2014 to verify efforts and support improvement activities. In fiscal year 2016, audits were conducted at DIC’s nine principal sites and four sites belonging to DIC Graphics. In addition to regular audits, the Group assessed the progress of remedial measures at 13 domestic Group sites in response to issues identified in fiscal year 2015 audits.
The Group promotes similar efforts overseas, with audits becoming more stringent every year. In fiscal year 2016, the Group conducted inspections to determine the status of management systems, as well as Responsible Care audits in three areas (environment, safety and health) at 17 companies in Greater China (17 sites), three companies in the Republic of Korea (ROK) (three sites), and 16 companies in the Asia–Pacific region (21 sites). These audits used self-assessment checklists to confirm that each unit is progressing steadily through application of the PCDA cycle. Audits in Greater China were improved to include a revised self-assessment checklist comprising approximately 200 questions.
In fiscal year 2016, the Group reported two violations of environmental regulations overseas*.

VOICE

We are seeing clear improvements among DIC Group companies

We have expanded the deployment of ESH management systems at companies, previously limited to Japan, to DIC Group companies overseas, and have enhanced benchmarks to facilitate objective comparisons. In ESH audits, we encourage improvements by verifying self-assessments from third-party perspectives. Group companies have clearly progressed solidly over the past few years in terms of awareness and behavior. We look forward to working with colleagues across the Group to set ever-higher targets and respond to society’s expectations.
