The UBE Group’s activities are based on the principles of Responsible Care (RC).
RC is a set of principles and practices inviting corporations that handle chemical substances to make voluntary efforts to protect the environment, safety and health at all stages of the process of chemical substance handling — from development, manufacturing, distribution, and use, to final consumption, disposal and recycling. It also entails disclosing the results of these activities and engaging in dialogue and communication with society.
The UBE Group embraces RC principles and implements RC activities across all of its business segments including chemicals, construction materials, machinery, and energy and environment.
The UBE Group implements the following six RC initiatives.
1. Environmental Preservation
Initiatives for the health of the earth’s people and natural environment
2. Process Safety and Disaster Prevention
Initiatives for the prevention of accidents at facilities and mitigation of natural disasters.
3. Occupational Safety and Health
Initiatives for the health and safety of workers.
4. Logistics Safety
Initiatives for the prevention of accidents related to logistics, and for disaster mitigation.
5. Product Stewardship
Disclosure and communication of the properties and handling methods of chemicals, for the safety and health of all persons who handle chemicals including customers, and for conservation of the environment.
6. Publication of performance reports and dialogue with society
Open reporting of the details and outcomes of activities, and social and community dialogue.
The UBE Group actively pursues RC in line with these objectives.
