CDP operates a global disclosure system for investors, companies, cities, states, and regions to manage environmental impacts. Based on its annual survey of suppliers, CDP's 2022 "Supplier Engagement Rating" recognizes companies that have compiled outstanding environmental records and targets.
Kyocera has committed to reducing its GHG emissions by 46% by FY2031 (compared to FY2020 levels), and increasing its renewable energy adoption 20x by FY2031 (compared to FY2014 levels). The company aims to achieve carbon neutrality by FY2051*, and supports the goal to hold the average rise in global temperature to below 1.5°C through FY2031 as compared to pre-industrial levels.
CDP praised this comprehensive approach to reducing GHG emissions and named Kyocera as a leading company on the list. This year, CDP recognized 653 companies, representing only 8% of the total candidates. The 2022 list includes just over 130 Japan-based enterprises.
The Kyocera Group will continue to work toward creating a sustainable, decarbonized society by pursuing new approaches to GHG reduction that go beyond conventional frameworks.
*Kyocera's carbon neutrality goal includes both direct and indirect emissions. Direct emissions are associated with fuel consumption and production processes. Indirect emission are associated with consumption of power or heat purchased from outside. Indirect also includes procurement of raw materials, transport, use and disposal of products, as well as employee commuting and business trips.
