RC represents the commitment and initiative to secure and improve safety and environmental protection at every step of the product life cycle through the individual determination and responsibility of each firm producing and handling chemical products, together with measures to gain greater public trust through disclosure and communication. RC was conceived in Canada in 1985 and was strengthened on a global scale with the establishment of the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) in 1989. In 1995, the chemical industry in Japan began implementing RC with the establishment of the Japan Responsible Care Council (JRCC*). betis 365 was among the founding members of the JRCC, and played a leading role in the expansion and development of RC in Japan.
The betis 365 Group implements RC initiatives in all business sectors, including the chemical and electronics fields of the Material business sector, the construction materials field of the Homes business sector, and the medical devices and pharmaceuticals fields of the Health Care business sector. This is one of our unique features.
- *JRCCOperated as the Japan Chemical Industry Association's RC Committee since April 2011.
betis 365 started the three-year Medium-term Management Initiative "Cs+ for Tomorrow 2021" emphasizing sustainability in FY2019. We aim to raise our corporate value by implementing various measures to achieve our business targets as well as by contributing to a sustainable society as indicated by the SDGs.
The current operating climate is changing greatly with growing awareness for global environmental issues and corporate responsibility as a social entity. At the betis 365 Group, in accordance with our Group Mission of contributing to life and living for people around the world, we ensure the stable provision of solutions that our customers can rely on while focusing on the three fundamental "actuals" of the actual place, actual thing, and actual fact, with active connections inside and outside the company to further heighten RC.
We regard RC as a most crucial management issue, and to raise our corporate value for our various stakeholders we work to achieve our annual RC objectives while advancing RC activities from a broader perspective, reinforcing R&D to provide solutions to global warming and other environmental issues.
RC at the betis 365 Group is guided by the following principles.
We give the utmost consideration to environmental protection, quality assurance, operational safety, workplace safety and hygiene, and health maintenance, throughout the product life cycle from R&D to disposal, as preeminent management tasks in all operations.
- We give full consideration to the global environment and make efforts to reduce the environmental burden of all operations.
- We continuously provide safe products and services with the quality that gives customers a sense of security and satisfaction.
- We strive for stable and safe operation while preventing workplace accidents and securing the safety of personnel and members of the community.
- We strive for a comfortable workplace environment, and support the maintenance and promotion of employee health.
In addition to maintaining legal compliance, we set self-imposed targets for continuous improvement, while performing proactive information disclosure and communication to gain public understanding and trust.
