We are engaged in a variety of initiatives with regard to the four important environmental items: Responses to climate change, Effective use of resources, Environmental conservation and management, and Conservation of biodiversity.
First, as part of Responses to climate change, we have set CO₂ emission reduction targets and are managing progress toward achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. To promote Effective use of resources, we have also set targets for resource use, regularly evaluate our progress, and continue our efforts to reduce or avoid environmental impacts in our business activities.
Furthermore, with regard to Environmental conservation and management, we are conducting proper management of chemical substances, including those in our supply chain. We are also actively working to realize environmentally friendly policies with regard to Conservation of biodiversity in our own products and services and in our supply chain.
