Earned the score “B” in the CDP evaluation

Our corporate group got the score B, which is the third-highest rating of the eight scores, in the “CDP Climate Change 2023*.”
The score “B” is a management level, indicating that companies scoring B in CDP “have addressed the environmental impact and risks of their business and ensure good environmental management.”
(News release in February 2023) We will continuously endeavor to settle social issues and enhance our corporate value, while reducing greenhouse gases emitted through our corporate group’s business activities.

*CDP: CDP stands for Carbon Disclosure Project. It is a not-for-profit organization based in the United Kingdom and promoting disclosure of information on climate change. It requires mainly companies to disclose information on the three subjects, which are climate change, water security, and forests (forestry protection), through its questionnaires, rates companies based on the total points obtained on an eight-grade scale consisting of A, A-, B, B-, C, C-, D, and D- (and F if answers are not provided) with A being the highest rating and D- being the lowest, and globally publishes the results of its assessment showing that participating companies are at one of the following four levels: Disclosure, Awareness, Management, and Leadership.
