Kyocera Targets 30 % Greenhouse Gas Reduction by 2030, Recognized by Science Based Targets Initiative
July 3, 2019
Kyoto/London - Kyocera announced that the Kyocera Group’s target to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30 percent by the year of 2030 has received an official endorsement from the Science Based Targets (SBT) initiative.
SBT is an international initiative established in 2015 to support the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global warming to "well-below" 2 °C above pre-industrial levels. The initiative involves collaboration among CDP, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
More than 550 companies worldwide have joined the initiative, and more than 200 have received the SBT endorsement for their targets.
As part of its longstanding program to reduce GHG emissions, Kyocera recently committed to reduce GHG emissions by 30 % by 2030 (Scope 1,2 and Scope 1,2,3 from base year 20131 ).
In parallel to this goal, Kyocera is also targeting a 10x increase in renewable energy adoption by 2030 compared to 2013 levels. By setting this target, Kyocera will continue to work toward the achievement of a sustainable, low-carbon society through implementation of new environmental and renewable energy approaches including the installation of off-site renewable energy generating systems which are capable of supplying power for production.
Kyocera Group’s Environmental Targets
- Scope 1, 2 GHG emissions: Reduce 30 % by 2030 compared to 2013 levels (SBT recognized)
- Scope 1, 2, 3 GHG emissions: Reduce 30 % by 2030 compared to 2013 levels (SBT recognized)
- Renewable energy adoption: Increase 10x by 2030 from 2013 levels
