  • Environmental (Responsible Care) Policy

Basic Approach

Nippon Paint's philosophy is to proactively contribute to the preservation and beautification of the environment through our business activities, which include creating colors and attractive surroundings, while conserving materials and resources. In line with this approach, all employees and internal organizations are making it their own individual mission and responsibility to cooperate in tackling environmental problems. We aim to help create a beautiful environment through mutual trust with people everywhere, including regional communities and our customers.
To this end, we have established the following policies for all business activities:

  1. We will pay due attention to preserving the global environment and protecting ecosystems, while striving to conserve energy and other resources in the course of all business activities (including the provision of both products and services),
  2. We will advance the development of products with low environmental impact and of technologies that reduce this impact. We will also pay due attention to the environment, safety and health at all stages of a product's lifecycle, from development to disposal.
  3. We will work to reduce the impact of operations on the environment, and to secure the safety and health of local residents and employees.


  1. The following are the aims of our Responsible Care activities:
    • To establish a Responsible Care management system based on international trends.
    • To reduce risk through comprehensive safety management of chemicals.
    • To preserve the environment and ensure safety in the course of daily business activities.
    • To preserve the environment and ensure safety in the course of international business activities and transactions in chemicals.
