Suzuki Global Environment Charter
Suzuki Global Environment Charter (Established in 2002 and revised in 2006)
In order to hand over the beautiful earth and affluent society to the next generations, we must all realise that the actions of each and every one of us have a great effect on our earth's future, so we must make every effort to preserve our environment.
[Basic Environmental Policies]
- Strictly observe environmental laws and also follow our own standards.
- Reduce the pressure placed on the environment resulting from our business activities and products.
- Maintain and improve upon our environmental management system.
- Promote environmental communication.
Suzuki Environmental Organisational Chart
In April 2001, Suzuki established the Suzuki Environmental Committee as the top decision-making body in the environmental management system for the entire Group.
Meetings by Suzuki Environment Committee are held twice a year to determine our environmental policy and long- and mid-term environmental goals, check the progress in the existing issues, and discuss urgent problems.
Suzuki Environmental Plan 2020
In order to hand over the beautiful earth and affluent society to the next generations, Suzuki had established and been striving to accomplish “Suzuki Environmental Plan 2015” for environmental conservation activities from 2012 to 2015 based on “Suzuki Global Environment Charter”. We then established “Suzuki Environmental Plan 2020” for continuous environmental conservation activities from FY2016 to FY2020 to clearly present the direction and actions of Suzuki’s business operations in relation to environment.
We believe that our most important task is to seriously recognise effects to environment generated from our business operations, develop products that carefully consider environment and promote business operations that reduce environmental effects. To accomplish this, we will work on “Suzuki Environmental Plan 2020” with “Team Suzuki” involving domestic and overseas affiliates to build the base for 2020, which is the 100th anniversary of foundation, and for the next 100 years, following the 4 themes: Control of global warming; Promotion of environmental conservation; Promotion of 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle); and Reinforcement of environmental management.
In order to achieve this Suzuki Environmental Plan 2020, we will manage and continuously improve our operations through PDCA and promote business activity to reduce environmental impact.
- * PDCA is a way of making initiatives in a cycle of Plan, Do, Check, and Action. It not only covers planning and doing, but also checking and making actions, thereby enabling to make initiatives by constantly improving through feeding back effects and reflections.

Introduction of Environmental Management System
Suzuki is promoting introduction of “Environmental Management Systems” including ISO14001 as part of environmental conservation activities by the Group’s manufacturing plants and companies.
The ISO14001 is an international standard of environmental management system. By obtaining the ISO14001 certificate, Suzuki intends to follow the relevant regulations and reduce the environmental impact substances. Also, through periodical environmental audits, we verify the effectiveness of our environmental management system.
Suzuki has already completed acquiring ISO14001 certifications in bases that account for 97.1% of CO2 emerged from global production. We will introduce the way of environmental management at all plants, and promote ISO14001 at plants that have not yet acquired its certification.
Efforts at manufacturing sites (Japan)
●Introduction situation in domestic plants and Group companies
All domestic plants already acquired the ISO14001 certificate by March 2003. As for the Group’s manufacturing companies, three manufacturing plants (a plant of Suzuki Toyama Auto Parts Mfg Co., Ltd., Suzuki Akita Auto Parts Mfg Co., Ltd. and Suzuki Auto Parts Mfg Co., Ltd.) and two plants of Snic Co., Ltd. have been certified (as of 1 April 2019). We are also promoting to have two uncertified plants (Hamakita Trim Plant and Sagara Plant) of Snic Co., Ltd. to acquire certification. We plan to promote environmental preservation activities throughout the Suzuki Group as a whole by promoting to have non-manufacturing departments such as engineering department to acquire ISO14001.
●Manufacturing: Environment Organiser Meeting
Suzuki holds Environment Organiser Meeting in order to improve environmental management of domestic plants and Group manufacturing companies.
At this meeting, engineering managers and members of domestic plants and Group manufacturing companies (eight plants of four companies) get together to discuss improvements for environment conservation plan and matters related to domestic plants and Group manufacturing companies while seeing actual systems on actual sites.
Decisions made at the meetings are rolled out to domestic plants and Group manufacturing companies, contributing to environmental management activities.
At Suzuki’s domestic plants and the Group manufacturing companies, an external audit is conducted once every year by an external auditing agent. In addition, an internal audit is conducted to double-check our environmental management system.
Auditing of documents and on-site auditing are carried out by third party organisation in regard to the validity and adequacy of our environmental management system, to determine whether or not measures are being properly implemented. Auditing results are corrected and countermeasures are put into place for continuous improvement, and they are shared among domestic plants and Group manufacturing companies to enhance environmental management level.
For internal audits, two kinds of audits are conducted: one is an overall audit, and the other is a local audit. We select auditors that have no direct association with the section being audited, and they examine whether environmental management is being properly carried out or not. All auditing results are addressed for continuous improvement.
To determine whether or not environmental management is being properly implemented, document and on-site auditing are conducted.
Thorough on-site observations are carried out while auditing in areas that possess potential for accidents such as drainage disposal facilities, space for using and storing harmful substance, and waste yard facilities.
Areas that possess potential for accidents undergo regular patrol by the plant manager to prevent environmental accidents.
Efforts at manufacturing sites (overseas)
●Situation of certification in overseas plants
As for overseas manufacturing companies, MAGYAR SUZUKI CORPORATION LTD. obtained the certification in April 1998 for the first time in our Group. As of the end of May 2019, 13 overseas manufacturing companies (18 plants) have obtained the ISO14001 certificate. Other Group companies are also making best efforts to acquire the certificate.
Measures for domestic sales distributors
In order to roll out actions concerning environment in business operations to Group companies, we introduced the Suzuki Environmental Management System from April 2017 to affiliate automobile sales distributors in Japan. This environmental management system unique to Suzuki is part of our initiative in reducing environmental load (energy consumption and amount of wastes) and complying with environmental laws/regulations through PDCA recycling. Sales distributor that introduced this system is progressively promoting the activity centreing on the designated environment manager and office.
●Education according to managerial hierarchy
As part of our employee education program, we provide new employees with awareness-raising workshops concerning such basic environmental subjects as Suzuki's environmental philosophy, policy, issues, and eco-drive concept. Also, we provide other employees with environmental training according to their job functions. In addition, training is provided to management level employees. In our domestic plants, special educational programs to prevent environmental accidents are carried out especially for employees working in environmentally-important processes. Also various kinds of environment-related educational programs are provided to new employees, management level employees, and all factory employees.
●Education to obtain special qualifications
We also encourage employees to obtain some environment-related qualifications. The Company holds 160 employees as pollution prevention managers, 38 as energy managers, and 205 as internal environment system auditors.
We look for locations and operations that have potential of causing an environmental accident* and hold emergency drills with employees and other related suppliers at domestic plants and domestic and overseas Group manufacturing companies.
* Environmental accident refers to accidents that may affect environment such as leakage of chemicals.
Situation concerning environmental laws, regulations, etc.
In FY2018, there were 20 cases of significant spills* and 6 cases of complaints concerning environment, which were properly taken care of. There was no administrative guidance or payment of penalty due to these significant spills.
* Significant spills: Spills that are recorded as spills from organisation such as exceeded amount of wastewater, emission gas, odour, chemical substances (including oil), and wastes that are restricted by laws and regulations, as well as soil and groundwater contamination.
Community information exchange meeting
We regularly carry out information exchange meetings with local residents to ask their views and opinions for further environmental improvement. In FY2018, such meetings and events took place 8 times at domestic plants and die plants in Japan. Also, 406 plant tours were conducted at domestic plants.

Expansion of environmental communication
Efforts for biodiversity
Suzuki introduced the environmental brand SUZUKI GREEN to realise the philosophy of Suzuki Global Environment Charter and announced the Suzuki Biodiversity Protection Guidelines as the environmental policy in the Charter.
Suzuki Biodiversity Protection Guidelines will be the guiding principle for us to recognise the possibility of business activities etc. giving unavoidable influences to biodiversity, which has provided our life with enormous natural blessings (ecosystem service) since the birth of human, as well as for us to try to reduce such influences, and make efforts to ensure sustainable usage.
Suzuki has conducted many actions to reduce influences to biodiversity in our business or social contribution activities, and participated in Japan Business & Biodiversity Partnership*.
Through the release of the Guidelines, we aim to raise awareness about the biodiversity throughout the entire Suzuki Group, and to develop a sustainable society that can coexist with the nature, while keeping good relations with our customers and the local communities.
* Partnership that wide varieties of companies mainly from the economic world make efforts voluntarily for conservation and sustainable usage of biodiversity and share related information in order to accomplish the purpose of the Convention of Biological Diversity.
●Suzuki Biodiversity Protection Guidelines
Under the slogan of “Smaller, Fewer, Lighter, Shorter, and Neater”, Suzuki Group thoroughly conducts wasteless, efficient business operations and promotes production of small cars by pursuing environmental technologies in order to reduce influences to biodiversity and contribute to sustainable usage of resources in future.
Based on such activity philosophy, Suzuki Group will try to cooperate with various stakeholders as a member of the society and to develop the society harmonised with beautiful natural environment.

●Activities for “CLEAN-UP THE WORLD CAMPAIGN”
The Marine Operations of Suzuki always appreciates that both of our lives and our marine business are made up of water, and our employees and their families voluntarily clean rivers, sea, lakes, etc. where outboard motors are used. Such clean-up activities were first held in December 2010 at Lake Sanaru in Hamamatsu, and since the 2nd time, we expanded the clean-up activities to the world as “CLEAN-UP THE WORLD CAMPAIGN”, called for our overseas dealers with a total of 5,674 participants by 2018. Since 2015, the number of participants started to exceed 1,000 every year, making it the annual event for the Marine Operations. Likewise in 2019, starting from the activity held by the headquarters on 22 June (Nakatajima Sand Dune cleanup activity), the campaign will be held in parts of Japan as well as overseas.
The activity is in line with the concept of the “Plastics Smart Campaign - for sustainable ocean -” which is promoted by the Ministry of the Environment toward solution of global marine plastic issues, and was registered to the campaign since 2018. The activity is also introduced at the Ministry’s website. We will develop these activities further and contribute to local communities in all over the world through cleaning in waterfront areas.
●Forest Conservation Activities
Suzuki's Forest (Hamamatsu)
Suzuki concluded a Volunteer Forest agreement with Tenryu Forest Administration Department of Forestry Agency and started the forestry preservation activities in March 2006 at Suzuki's Forest located in Inasa-cho, Kita-ku, Hamamatsu.
Our employees and their family members conduct the forestry activity every year such as planting trees, clearing away the undergrowth, and fungus planting/harvesting operations.
This activity was conducted 28 times in total until May 2019 (12 times of planting and 16 times of undergrowth clearing), and participated by 1,400 volunteers.
Participation to the tree planting project at storm surge barrier
On 29 November 2015, members of the Suzuki Green Club participated in the storm surge barrier tree planting project in coastal zone of Enshu held by the prefecture of Shizuoka and the city of Hamamatsu and Iwata. Total of 7 activities were held by FY2018 with 248 participants, and 850 nursery trees of pine trees, etc. were planted. The Suzuki Green Club will continue forest conservation and greening activities through activities in Suzuki’s Forest and storm surge barrier.
Forest of Suzuki Shimokawa Proving Grounds (Hokkaido)
Suzuki's proving grounds is located in the town of Shimokawa (Kamikawa County) on the north of Hokkaido, where the forest accounts for about 90% of the total land area. In 2003, Shimokawa acquired the international FSC(R)*1 Forest Management Certificate (FSC(R)C015134) as the first forestry cooperative in Hokkaido, and in 2011, it was designated as an Environmental Future City*2 featuring effective utilisation of abundant natural resources. Now it aims to become a “future city with best harmonisation between people and forests”.
Moreover, a 300-ha forest located in the proving grounds was also recognised to satisfy the strict forest stewardship standards according to the FSC(R) certification program, so the area was additionally registered in the FSC(R) Forest Group Certificate for Shimokawa Town in 2006 (FSC(R) C015134).
At the same time, Suzuki will continuously promote co-existence and co-prosperity with the local society who takes great care of the nature through participation of events and sales of agricultural products.
- *1 FSC(R): Forest Stewardship Council
- *2 The “Environmental Future City” is a governmental project to create the world's most ideal city where everybody wishes to live. Under this program, high potential regions are selected and financially supported for realising such an ideal city.
Participation in “Corporate Forest Preservation Program” (Hokkaido)
As part of environmental preservation and social action programs, we cooperate in silvicultural environment protection by participating in “Corporate Forest Preservation Program”, which is conducted under the Profit-Sharing Afforestation agreement with the government (Forestry Agency) for the period from 1996 to 2028.
For approximately 4.3-ha national forest (containing approximately 3,000 trees) in Shimokawa, we conduct the profit-sharing afforestation by entrusting the work to the local forestry cooperative through Hokkaido Regional Forest Office. Also, for many years, we have contributed to preservation of national land through watershed conservation, sediment discharge prevention and CO2 absorption and fixation. The shared profits coming from the program will be used for further afforestation activities.
