Organizational Structure

MOL has not only taken initiatives to comply with IMO targets on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but also set forth the mid- and long-term environmental measures as key theme. On April 1, 2019, it established the "Environmental Management Committee" chaired by Executive Vice President as a subordinate organization of the Executive Committee, with the goal of reviewing cross-sectional discussions about the theme and formulating strategies. The committee plays a key role in promoting the environmental and emission-free businesses, which will become core MOL operations in the future, in addition to confirming the environmental targets and monitoring progress and achievements.

Meanwhile, the "SOx 2020 Regulation Compliance Committee" is working to ensure compliance with SOx emissions regulations that will take effect in January 2020. The Technology Innovation Unit promotes innovative initiatives with new, creative ideas on environment-related and other technologies and ICT strategies.

Environmental Management System

Environmental Management System

ISO14001

To precisely grasp and manage the environmental risks and opportunities in our businesses, we established the environmental management system MOL EMS21 in April 2001, and since then we have made ongoing efforts to improve it. Every year, Environment Office conducts an internal audit based on MOL EMS21. The chairman, who is responsible for environmental management, receives the results of the internal audit and confirms whether the system is functioning effectively.

We also have a third-party audit by DNV GL Business Assurance Japan KK every year, and a renewal audit every three years, and have earned ISO14001 certification for our environmental management system.

The MOL Group Environmental Target System

The MOL Group Environmental Target System

We have implemented the Group Environmental Target System, targeting major group companies in Japan and overseas. Every year, each company sets environmental targets to reduce the environmental impact of our business activities based on specific guidelines that are in line with midterm management plan, and establishes action plans to achieve those targets. Along with those targets, we collect each company’s data on its own environmental impact (fuel consumption, electric power consumption, paper usage, waste, and so on).

Number of target companies 52 in Japan 20 overseas
Comment from Executive Officer Responsible for Environmental Technologies
Yoshikazu Kawagoe
Senior Managing Executive Officer

Environmental regulations serve as very important guides for our introduction of environmental technologies. We determine where the regulations are pointing us, and then it’s important that we proactively and precisely comply with them.

We have worked voluntarily to reduce our environmental burden and improve fuel efficiency. In cooperation with the business divisions, shipyards, and equipment and machinery manufacturers, we realize a competitive advantage through differentiating technologies, meeting the needs of customers who have especially high standards regarding environmental performance.

There are still many things we can do from both hardware and software aspects. We will continue to aggressively adopt new technologies, gain feedback and knowledge seafarers on the front lines, and direct our research and development activities to proactively develop the technologies of the future.
