Monitoring the State of Environmental Liabilities

With respect to environmental risks, particularly asbestos, PCB and soil contamination, associated with tangible fixed assets of ITOCHU Corporation itself and its Group companies including land and buildings, ITOCHU not only complies with legal requirements but also conducts monitoring on a voluntary basis and seeks to respond in a way that is conducive to the switch determination and judgment of management policies. In fiscal 2018, ITOCHU will continue to promote the sharing of related information through various training such as training sessions on the Soil Contamination Countermeasures Act.
