TEL promotes environmental activities across the company through its corporate Q-EHS Promotion Center. TEL executives appoint members to the product environment compliance meeting, and the operation environment value meeting, all of which carry out activities to achieve our environmental goals. The EHS council convenes twice a year to assess progress toward our environmental goals and encourage continued improvement.
We have operated environmental management systems based on ISO 14001 since 1997, especially at our manufacturing subsidiaries. In 2016, we acquired multi-site ISO 14001 certification for our factories and offices in Japan that had previously acquired certification separately. Also, along with adhering to the 2015 revisions, we identified overall internal and external issues and stakeholder needs and expectations in relation to the environment. We set the following as our risks and opportunities to address: (1) environmental management by reducing the environmental impact of our business activities, (2) compliance with applicable laws, and (3) enhancing product competitiveness with the environmental contribution of products. During fiscal 2017, we established approximately 100 environmental goals across the entire Group and carried out these improvement activities. We plan to expand this setup to each of our sites in Asia.
Through these efforts we continue to assess our compliance with environmental laws, emission standards, and other voluntary standards. TEL has not been involved in any environmental incidents or accidents. We have not been in violation of any environmental laws or subject to any associated legal proceedings in fiscal year 2016.
