Our medium- to long-term greenhouse gas reduction targets were approved in June 2019 as science-based greenhouse gas reduction targets from the international initiative "Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)." Our targets are categorized as the strictest “1.5℃ target.”
We expressed our support in October 2019 for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), which was established by the Financial Stability Board to encourage the disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities.
The "Water Project" is a public-private partnership project launched after the "Basic Law on the Water Cycle" enacted in 2014, which states that governments and companies should work together to protect the water cycle in Japan. We participated in October 2019.
RE100 is an international initiative, aiming to source 100% of the electricity consumed in its business activities with renewable energy, which is operated by The Climate Group, an international environmental NGO which promotes climate change countermeasures, in partnership with CDP, an international NPO, that encourages companies to disclose and manage environmental impact information. We participated in RE100 in June 2020.
Annual inputs and outputs are grasped on a regular basis to use as reference data for our efforts to reduce environmental impact (Scope: production and research sites, FY2019).
We have established an environmental management system in which the President, Representative Director is in charge of environmental management. Under the President, Representative Director, Corporate Executive Officer / Head of Corporate Communications oversees company-wide environmental management, and the CSR Promotion Section manages the Environmental Management Committee. Members of the Committee are chosen from relevant departments and are responsible for specific on-site monitoring and promoting environmental management. Each production and research sites with a major environmental impact has a subcommittee to work on environmental issues. Each production site makes continuous efforts to reduce environmental impact under an ISO 14001-compliant environmental management system. We have also acquired ISO 14001 certification for all production sites in operation. In addition, under the subcommittee, which is a subordinate organization of the Environmental Management Committee, for the three priority items, "realization of a decarbonized society," "realization of a water recycling society," and "realization of a resource recycling society," we have started to study the measures to reduce the environmental impacts. The progress of these efforts is to be reported at least once a year at the Executive Committee chaired by the President.
In addition, to reduce environmental risks, employees involved in operations that could have an impact on the environment receive necessary training on environmental management.
We also have a structure to minimize environmental impact arising from emergencies by providing training and on-site education and formulating emergency-preparedness manuals.
