"ISO14001 Internal Environmental Auditor Training Course" Completion Ceremony

On Thursday, November 19, 2020, "ISO 14001 Internal Environmental Auditor Training Course" completion ceremony was held for 20 Gifu University students. It was attended by President Hisataka Moriwaki, Vice President Noriaki Matsuda (General Affairs and Finance, Environmental Affairs Office Manager), Professor Tetsuma Murase (a chief environment manager, the Faculty of Applied Biological Sciences), and Professor Masahiro Ebihara (deputy chief environment manager, the Faculty of Engineering).

All facilities of Gifu University excluding the University Hospital have already obtained ISO 14001 Certification (the international standard for environmental management systems), and volunteer staff and students carry out ISO 14001 internal environmental auditing every year. In internal auditing, they check whether the university's environmental management system is operated in compliance with ISO 14001 standard or not.

In the training course, students and staff were given a briefing on ISO 14001 standard, and received training for internal auditing from invited lecturers. They later carried out internal auditing and made their comments from their own perspectives of environmental protection.

At the ceremony, President Moriwaki handed out a certificate of completion to 20 students. Here are some comments from the students: "I was given a precious opportunity to know more about the university's environmental policies and activities," "I become more interested in environmental issues and hope to continue serving as an auditor," and "I want our juniors to take over our conservation activities for our better future."

This is a word of encouragement from President Moriwaki: "Environmental protection needs to be addressed by students and staff together, and our student participation in such activities is a real advantage of the university. I sincerely wish that your activities will be further expanded and evolved to preserve beautiful nature. "

It is our hope that 20 students continue playing active roles to safeguard our environment by fully utilizing their expertise.
