Environmental Education

Independent Practitioner's Assurancecheckmark

The basic framework for education in the Komatsu group divides functions in a way where education of common knowledge is supervised by the Head Office and specific education, unique or distinct to occupation, is administered by respective divisions.

The training course for the standard amendment of ISO14001 (2015 Revision) which was held in FY2015 was held again in FY2016 and a cumulative total of approximately 360 people participated. In FY2017 training will be held to increase the number of internal auditors for the head office departments.
The environmental education for new executives which has been provided since FY2014, is now being conducted through an e-Learning program.
Although the number of personnel with environment-related certification meets the quota set by law, we aim to move forward with planned personnel certification.
