(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.
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.
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).
