Mitsubishi Materials Corporation
Mitsubishi Materials Corporation has received SBT certification from the SBT Initiative(*1), an international organization that certifies Science Based Targets (SBT) that are greenhouse gas emission reduction targets scientifically consistent with the goals set forth in the Paris Agreement(*2).
Based on the corporate philosophy "For People, Society and the Earth," our Group plans and promotes strategic initiatives to address the risks and opportunities associated with global warming in conjunction with the company-wide management strategy. With the goal of achieving carbon neutrality by FY2046, we are working to develop and expand the use of renewable energy, including geothermal power generation, which is one of our strengths, while conserving energy at our manufacturing sites and improving technology and equipment to reduce greenhouse gas (hereinafter "GHG") emissions. We aim to use renewable energy for 100% of our electricity needs in FY2036 and to achieve the generation of as much electricity as we consume from renewable sources in FY2051.
Following this certification, we will continue to ensure we perform manufacturing that considers the reduction of its environmental impact and actively promote the reduction of GHG emissions to further contribute to achieving a decarbonized society.
The current GHG reduction targets are shown below, as announced on February 10, 2023 (*6).
