Progress of the OKI Group's Environmental Activities

The OKI Group's environmental activities were officially launched in the 1970's. After being involved in various environmental conservation activities for quite a long time, we started making our main production sites acquire ISO14001 Certification in 1997. We established the OKI group environmental management in fiscal 2004. Since then, we have continued to expand the Scope of ISO14001 Consolidated Certification to many sites inside and outside Japan.
