NEC Display Solutions is practically involved in the formulation, driving and implementation of EU environmental policies through membership of Digital Europe - the voice of the ICT industry to the EU Commission and the Japanese Business Council Europe.
We instituted an internal company program to ensure compliance to all the recent EU directives (WEEE, RoHS, REACH, EuP and Waste Packaging). We also work closely with partners and representatives to ensure legal compliance to any local environmental legislation.
On a global basis, NEC Display Solutions ensures that our manufacturing facilities are compliant to the stringent ISO14001 (Environmental Management) norm.
Under the NEC Group 2017 Vision, NEC is implementing environmental management targeting zero net CO
emissions by the end of 2017. In addition to cutting CO
emissions generated by production activities, NEC is also helping customers reduce emissions by supplying energy efficient products and IT solutions.
Three years have passed since developing the NEC Group Environmental Management Action Plan 2017/2030 in 2010. Activities are promoted from the three perspectives of ‘Low carbon’, ‘Resource recycling and conservation’, and ‘Ecosystem and biodiversity preservation’. Activities to accomplish the action plan will be accelerated through further improvement of product energy efficiency, by providing solutions for a contribution to a reduction of CO₂ emissions by the customers and society and through other means.
Based on our Environmental Management Vision 2010, we have established a mid-term plan that aims for the attainment of specific targets. The targets have been established in four categories: product-related items, solution-related items, plant- and office-related items, and Environmental Communications Items. The level of target achievement will be regularly assessed and the results incorporated in future activities.
NEC is implementing its mid-term environmental plan by classifying each of its priorities into  action themes to be launched company-wide on a priority basis and  items for continuing improvement activities, ones that define the weighted priority of each of the activity goals
