Sustainability

Legal Compliance and Fulfillment of International Responsibilities

We recognize the importance of environmental issues and strive to reduce risks by complying with laws and fulfilling our international responsibilities. Furthermore, we support international environmental initiatives and take actions to address climate change.

TCFD

Since the Paris Agreement came into effect in 2016, there has been a rapid increase in the demand for companies to address climate change risks and pursue decarbonization. We recognize the impact of intensified abnormal weather events, such as typhoons and heavy rainfall, and the transition to a decarbonized society as "climate change risks". As one of our key priorities, we have set the objective of "contributing to the realization of a decarbonized and circular society" and are progressing towards achieving a low-carbon and circular society by utilizing our business expertise and creating new business opportunities.
In addition to the above initiatives, we recognize the importance of climate-related financial disclosure and have expressed support for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations.

CDP

We provide information disclosure regarding our environmental impact to CDP, an international NGO operating a global information disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, nations, and regions to manage environmental impacts.

Japan Climate Initiative

JAPAN CLIMATE INITIATIVE

Many organizations and companies are participating in this network with the policy of creating a movement that moves Japan as a whole toward the realization of a decarbonized society as required by the Paris Agreement.Through participation in the Japan Climate Initiative, we will accelerate our efforts to resolve climate change and environmental issues by utilizing information obtained from our network of various companies and local governments.
