In 2020, the Takasago group established greenhouse gas emission reduction targets and obtained SBT certification. We aim to reduce 27.5% of Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions intensity by FY2030 as compared to FY2019. In order to achieve this target, we are promoting various initiatives globally under our mid- to long-term sustainability plan, Sustainability 2030. As for Scope 3, we also aim to reduce 13.5% emissions by FY2030 as compared to FY2019.

In 2022, our group was selected as a model company for the Japanese Ministry of the Environment's “Supply Chain Decarbonization Promotion Project". We have been studying measures to reduce Scope 3 emissions and are further promoting them. In addition, CDP has selected us as a "Supplier Engagement Leader" in recognition of our efforts to tackle with climate change throughout our supply chain.
Climate change is one of the most important social issues global society is facing. We will continue to focus on climate -related issues and will work together on sustainability issues.
