In December 2017, NEC has committed to making science-based targets (SBTs) for its greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. In May 2021, then have strengthen its targets from the “well below 2ºC” goal to an alignment with the “1.5ºC” goal. Moreover, In April 2024, has been certified by the SBTi as a Net-Zero target*.

  • *
    The targets that have been certified this time cover not only "Scope 1 and Scope 2" but also "Scope 3". The near-term target is to reduce Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions by 50% or more from the FY2020 level by FY2030. The long-term target is to reduce emissions by 90% or more from the FY2020 level by FY2040. We will prioritize this reduction first and aim to achieve Net-Zero by neutralizing remaining emissions, which are extremely difficult to reduce, with absorption credits.
