Risk Management

Basic Stance

Led by its mission as a packaging provider, the Rengo Group seeks to be the world’s best general packaging manufacturer group and to create greater sustainable corporate value. To fulfill our responsibility as a supporting industry member that assists with the delivery of living essentials to consumers, we engage in various preparations and management in non-disaster periods, define basic policies for dealing with disasters, and strive to improve our supply structure.

Risk Management Structure

Rengo has established a CSR Committee chaired by the Chairman & CEO with the aims of improving management quality and reducing and avoiding future risks. With regard to the management of compliance, environment, disaster, quality, information, and other risks, individual departments and the six subcommittees, under CSR Committee, for ethics, environment, health and safety, customer satisfaction, public relations, and information security work together to formulate internal regulations, create manuals, and monitor company-wide conditions.
In addition, the Board of Directors receives reports on the status of initiatives from the directors who manage or oversee each business unit/group and department, and from the chairs of each subcommittees. The Board deliberates and makes decisions on improvement initiatives and other matters as necessary.

Natural Disaster Countermeasures

In consideration of the frequent occurrence of natural disasters such as earthquakes and typhoons, Rengo has established fundamental policies that outline the company’s response in the event of a disaster. Following the Great East Japan Earthquake, all business sites have maintained stocks of emergency supplies since June 2011. In addition, satellite telephones were installed at all business sites in March 2012. Since April 2012, we have developed a system that uses automatically sent emails to confirm the safety of employees and others and assess damage conditions in the event of a large-scale earthquake. Test emails are sent every six months in preparation for disasters.
