NEC has set a target of reducing CO2 emissions linked to our business operations to "effectively zero" by 2050 in fiscal 2017. We have also established the NEC Environmental Targets 2030 in fiscal 2021. Moreover, we have joined The Climate Pledge climate change initiative to accelerate its carbon neutral programs, and has moved its target for achieving carbon neutrality up to 2040. Accordingly, the contents of the Course of Action for Climate Change Toward 2050 have been reinterpreted as the Action Guidelines on Climate Change toward 2040. We will continue to reduce our environmental impact and risks and expand our contribution through our business for the future.
As part of its corporate social responsibility activities, NEC seeks to reduce environmental impacts in its own business activities. At the same time, it is carrying out "environmental business management" that contributes to reducing the environmental impacts of society as a whole through its products and services.
Also, to promote environmental management throughout the entire Group, it has established the "Environmental Policy" to express its environmental philosophy and action guidelines. Conduct that complies with the charter is expected of all NEC employees including executive officers
