Participation in External Initiatives


In February of 2009, we announced our participation in and signed the "United Nations Global Compact (UNGC)." As a UNGC participating company, we support the 10 Principles. We are strengthening our network with other participating companies and organizations and striving to contribute to society, with an understanding of our CSR activities from a global perspective.

The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact

  • Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and

Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

In May 2021, we expressed support for the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures, which encourages companies to disclose climate change-related financial information.
With regard to the four requirements (governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets) based on the TCFD recommendations, we made preparations based on the STEP scenario analysis presented by the Ministry of the Environment, and since fiscal 2022, we have disclosed climate change initiatives and related information in accordance with TCFD guidance. Going forward, we will continue to strive for even more environmentally friendly management and the realization of a sustainable society through enhanced disclosure.

Responding to climate change


TCFD Consortium

At the same time that we expressed our support for TCFD, we joined the TCFD Consortium, an organization established for the TCFD-supporting companies, financial institutions and others to discuss effective information disclosure and efforts to connect disclosed information to appropriate investment decisions by financial institutions and others.

JCI:Japan Climate Initiative

This network was established to enhance the dissemination of information and the exchange of ideas among companies, local governments, and NGOs actively engaged in climate change countermeasures in Japan and aims to realize a decarbonized society. We have been participating in the Japan Climate Initiative since January 2019.
