Joining the Climate Initiative and endorsing the message calling for accelerating renewable energy deployment
June 21, 2022
Our Group is pleased to announce that we endorse the message released on June 3 by the Japan Climate Initiative (JCI: Japan Climate Initiative, hereinafter referred to as “JCI”): “Calling for accelerating renewable energy deployment and stronger climate change measures amidst the energy crisis”.
(Details of the message is in JCI's press release:https://japanclimate.org/english/news-topics/jci-message-re-release/)
JCI is a flexible network consisting of various entities apart from the national government, such as companies, local authorities, associations, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that are actively working on climate change countermeasures. This message focuses on “Clean Energy Strategy”, which is being developed by the government by June this year, to promote the development of renewable energies such as wind and solar power and provide 40-50% of the country's power needs by 2030.
Our Group has set a target to reduce 50% of CO2 emission (scope 1, 2) in product manufacturing from 2009 to 2030. By endorsing this message, we will further promote climate change countermeasures toward carbon neutrality by 2050.
