Sumitomo Corporation conducts internal environmental audits on an annual basis to ensure that the environmental management system is functioning properly. In 2016 we carried out internal environmental audits in 289 domestic departments of Sumitomo Corporation and our group companies, with specific emphasis on (1) proper establishment of environmental targets, (2) management of progress in implementing the environmental action plan, (3) evaluation of compliance with legal requirements and (4) implementation and enhancement of environmental training. As a result of the audits, category-A and category-B nonconformity, as stipulated in the Internal Environmental Audit Administrative Rules, were not identified．
In July 2017, the third-party audits were conducted by an independent auditing organization, Japan Quality Assurance Organization, for the renewal of the current ISO 14001 certification status. We received approval as a result of the audits.
