History of Auditing for ISO 14064

Back to Data Collection (Environment)

Making continuous improvements by administering the environment management system

All of the Brother Group's manufacturing facilities as well as the sales facilities listed in the table below have acquired ISO 14001 certification (an international standard for environmental management systems) in accordance with the Brother Group Environmental Policy. Environmental improvement activities have been designed in compliance with the requirements. As of April 1, 2018, 86% of the Brother Group’s facilities have received ISO 14001 certification. When a new business site is established, activities are implemented in compliance with ISO 14001 concurrently with the commencement of operations, in principle. ISO 14001 certification is immediately obtained in order to maximize the effectiveness of environmental conservation activities. Work is underway to comply with the requirements of ISO 14001 that have been revised in 2015 as appropriate.

Meanwhile, the Brother Group is subject to audit based on ISO 14064 that provides guidelines for measuring and verifying emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs).
