Training of Key Environmental Management Players

Environmental Training for Software and Service Engineers

We implemented group training for software and services engineers using our Environmental activities and quantitative evaluation methods for environmental load at software and service business units (practice) course.
The course gathered participants from all areas of the NEC Group and taught them how to create and implement activities aimed at reducing environmental impact by using software and services. The wide cross-section of participants meant that these activities could be implemented more thoroughly throughout the NEC Group.

Environmental Training for Design Engineers

In the design and development division, design engineers the training needed to create ecological products. Such training includes activities for environmentally sound products and green purchasing. The content of the training is planned and implemented such that it is suited to the business characteristics of each business unit.

Auditor refresher training is provided every year to about 120 NEC environmental auditors in groups on law revisions, audit policy, and other matters.
Enhancement of the quality of audits is targeted by disseminating environmental trends, the status of NEC environmental management, the purpose of the audit of FY 2015 decided based on the result of the environmental management audit in the previous fiscal year, priority items, and changes made.

Training of Workers Engaged in Environmental Impact Works

Operators of environmental impact facilities, such as boilers and wastewater treatment plants, are obligated to acquire skills, technologies, and abilities.
To acquire these skills and technologies, training is provided for checking work procedures and for coping with emergencies.
The NEC Group encourages these operators to attain related official and legal qualifications by both attending courses to acquire these qualifications and by studying outside and in-house special curricula.
Through this dedication, the abilities of our operators are enhanced.
