Nitto Group Business Continuity Management (BCM)

By following the four basic policies of the PDCA cycle, we perform business continuity management (BCM) activities with a close connection between disaster mitigation (disaster prevention and damage minimization efforts) and quick recovery.

* BCM (Business Continuity Management): The entire management system, from BCP formation and operation to revision.

* BCP (Business Continuity Plan): An action plan during disasters as a life line to keep business going.

* From the Business Continuity Plan Formation Guidelines Summary, provided by METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry), and the Commerce and Information Policy Bureau.

Disaster Prevention and Damage Minimization Efforts (Mitigation)

Disaster prevention measures are provided in anticipation of damage caused by large-scale earthquakes, fires, flooding, lightning, new strains of influenza, etc. An emergency plan of action has been formulated for each type of disaster, and all employees receive education and training for such cases. In 2012, in preparation for a potential Nankai Trough Earthquake, top management of companies situated in high risk areas received disaster prevention training. Problems and issues realized through this kind of training are used to guide Corporate BCM Committee activities for all bases.

Efforts for Quick Recovery

Nitto Group's core businesses and important tasks are clarified, a target restoration time is set, and an emergency plan of action is formulated damage is confirmed and customers are contacted. A common action plan is formulated based on common themes that all target businesses and tasks share, as well as individual plans, which are tailored to individual needs for functions such as IT and distribution.

Emergency plans of action are tested periodically through disaster prevention training, and improvements are made based on the results. Our core businesses and important tasks are revised on a periodic basis as well.
