Environmental Management System (As of March 1, 2016)
*Group companies not subject to ISO 14001 are also promoting social and environmental activities by setting their own targets and goals.
Raising awareness and deepening understanding are essential to contributing to society and the environment. At the Lawson Group, we conduct social and environmental education and training for headquarters employees, franchise owners, store managers, and store crews.
Beginning with training at headquarters for new recruits and employees appointed to the position of assistant merchandise developer (AMD), training encompasses all Lawson employees and includes annual general environmental training via e-learning.
For franchise owners, store managers, and store crews, training is provided when new stores open as part of our Basic Management Course (BMC). Moreover, we take steps to regularly share information through in-house magazines and our Corporate Citizenship Report. Since fiscal 2012, moreover, we have been encouraging employees to broaden their knowledge by taking an external examination on the environment with the person responsible for promoting CSV taking the lead. Over 100 employees had passed an exam as of end fiscal 2014.
