Addressing Global Environmental Issues

The Kyocera Group engages in various environmental initiatives to help create a more sustainable society. We have placed particular emphasis on tackling climate change, setting ambitious targets for reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and increasing our renewable energy deployment by fiscal year 2030. To achieve these and other targets, we are proactively upgrading to high-efficiency equipment and installing solar power generating systems. In addition, we are actively contributing to the local community through biodiversity conservation activities. In recognition of our contributions, we received the Japanese Environment Minister’s Award for Global Warming Prevention Activities for the tenth consecutive year in 2019.
