Targets and Performance of Environmental Conservation Activities

Environmental Targets 2030

  1. Contribution to the decarbonized society: Aiming for zero emissions over the long term.
    1. The greenhouse gas emissions in the business activities: Reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 26% by FY2030 from a FY2017 base year.
    2. The greenhouse gas emissions in the value chain: Reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 20% by FY2030 from a FY2017 base year.
  2. Contribution to the sound material-cycle society: Promote of the recycled materials usages aiming at the sound material-cycle society.
  3. Contribution to the circular & ecological sphere society: Minimize the impact on the ecological system through the provision of the environmental activities and products / services.

In fiscal 2018, Furukawa Electric Group has set the Environmental Targets 2030 and applied for SBT(note) and got certified in fiscal 2019.

(note) SBT: Science Based Target.

(notes 1, 2) Scopes 1, 2, and 3
    Scope 1: Direct emissions from works resulting from the use of fossil fuels, etc.
    Scope 2: Indirect emissions resulting from the use of electricity, steam, and heat supplied from outside of works
    Scope 3: Other indirect emissions, such as purchased products and services, business trip, commuting, and upstream transportation
(note 3) CDP: An organization through which institutional investors cooperate to run projects that require companies to disclose their strategies on climate change and specific greenhouse gas emissions.

Activities Targets and Performance in Fiscal 2020

The total amount of greenhouse gas emissions in fiscal 2020 was 28.3% lower than in fiscal 2017, due in part to the impact of economic stagnation. As a measure against climate change, we are promoting energy conservation at our plants, installing solar power generation systems, and switching purchased electricity to renewable energy. Furthermore, we established the new “Furukawa Electric Group Vision 2050”, an environmental vision looking ahead to 2050, in order to take measures aimed at the awareness of ultra-long-term issues and their resolution from 2030 on.

Activity Targets in Fiscal 2021

The entire group will work to achieve the environmental targets for 2030. In terms of climate change measures, we will promote energy conservation activities, promote plans to introduce solar power generation, and switch purchased electricity to renewable energy, in line with long-term greenhouse gas reduction targets (SBT).
