KYOCERA Awarded Clean Industry Certification By Mexico’s Environmental Protection Agency

Kyocera Mexicana S.A. de C.V. today announced that it has achieved Industria Limpia (Clean Industry) Certification from Mexico’s Federal Environmental Protection Agency, PROFEPA (Procuraduria Federal De Protection Al Ambiente). PROFEPA verifies compliance with environmental legislation through inspection and comprehensive audits of a company’s internal environmental controls. The Industria Limpia certification is issued at two-year intervals and the 2012 honor marks the third consecutive period for which Kyocera has achieved certification.

“At Kyocera, our goal is to provide high-value-added products and services while reducing waste, promoting energy efficiency and conserving resources,” said David Hester, president, Kyocera Mexicana. “It is noteworthy that with each successive environmental compliance and performance audit, Kyocera’s results continue to improve. During our most recent evaluation, we were pleased that auditors did not find a single corrective measure to be addressed.”

Kyocera regards environmental regulations as a minimum standard, and maintains stricter controls in its hazardous and nonhazardous waste management systems, wastewater discharge and recycling practices. In addition, Kyocera promotes environmental awareness among employees through educational programs and events. The company recycles approximately 95% of all standard waste materials, operates a 100kW rooftop solar array that offsets 415 tons of carbon dioxide annually, recycles water from and for processes, uses recycled water for landscape irrigation, and in August 2012 served as the headquarters for Baja California’s Environmental Leadership Program for Competitiveness.

Kyocera Mexicana manufactures solar modules, liquid-crystal display components, and ceramic semiconductor packaging that powers consumer products for both the Mexican and North American markets.

“Consumers who use Kyocera products can rest assured that they are purchasing high-quality, reliable products manufactured with a strong environmental consciousness,” Hester stated. “We are committed to continuous improvement in all phases of manufacturing, including environmental impact.”
