Medium-to-Long-term Environmental Targets (CO2 Emission Reduction Targets)

The Group developed the medium-to-long-term environmental targets 2030/2050 in FY2020 to contribute to the realization of sustainable society, and are striving to reduce CO2 emissions. Amid the accelerating movements to realize a decarbonized society around the world, the Group updated the medium-to-long term environmental targets 2030/2050 developed in FY2020 with more aggressive targets in FY2021. We have launched a decarbonization promotion project to achieve the medium-to long-term environmental targets and is working proactively on initiatives in five areas (1.Energy saving, 2.Electrification, 3.Procure renewable energy, 4.Energy creation, 5.Emissions trading). We also set ICP (Internal carbon pricing) in investment decisions and study how to operate it in order to accelerate decarbonization initiatives.

Climate Change Initiatives - Response to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) -

As our group's corporate philosophy is "to deliver high-quality services that will help make the world a better place for people and nature for generations to come," we position climate change response as one of our highest priority management themes and identifies "Contribute to decarbonized society" as one of the material issues.
We also defined "Contribute to decarbonized/recycling oriented society" as one of the business objectives to promote initiatives to address climate-related risks and opportunities and reduce CO2 emissions. In addition, we announced our endorsement of the TCFD recommendations in September 2021 and partially reviewed our risks, opportunities, and financial impact assessments in FY2022.
