Toray has always given priority to tackling a wide variety of management issues in the areas of safety, accident prevention, and environmental preservation, as well as to upholding corporate ethics and complying with laws and régulations.
In order to ensure peaceful and secure trade in particular as regards carbon fiber and composite materials which are classified as dual-use items (they can be used either for civil or military applications), Toray Group performs strict security trade control of the final use of its products, in accordance with laws and in tight cooperation with its customers, as part of the company's social responsibilities.
Toray Carbon Fibers Europe will continually strive to contribute to society not only by supplying better products and services but by being a concerned corporate citizen.
Reducing the environmental impact of a wide range of products with Toray's high-strength and light-weight materials is one of our priorities.
The use of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) in automobiles and aircrafts offers dramatic weight réductions in the finished products, and this lowers fuel consumption. As a result, the demand for CFRP has been growing at an unprecedented rate, particularly in response to the urgent need to combat climate change.
Toray Carbon Fibers Europe has ISO 14001 (environmental standards) certification within the framework of its activity.
