Advancement of Energy Management through ISO50001

ISO50001 Certification acquired at Kameyama Plant 

Kameyama Plant acquired ISO50001 certification in October 2013 for the first time among the automotive parts manufacturers in Japan. ISO50001 is known and described as an energy management  system, and became an international standard in 2011. By establishing and utilizing a ISO50001 system, reduction in greenhouse gas and energy cost can be achieved.

Development of Energy Management through Global F.tech Energy Management Systems

F.tech has improved activities implemented at Kameyama plant and established "Global F.tech Energy Management System" as a common energy management system used among F.tech group companies, which cover all ISO50001 requirements and F.tech's unique knowhow is also incorporated.

Future Activities

Global F.tech Energy Management System will be shared with the entire F.tech Group, and support will be provided to allow it to be deployed uniformly across all production plants in order to achieve reduction in greenhouse gas as well as increase cost competitiveness.
