TOKYO - Nikon Corporation (Nikon) is pleased to announce that the Science Based Targets (SBT) initiative approved the Nikon Group's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets for FY 2030.
The SBT initiative is a collaboration between CDP, an international NGO working on environmental issues such as climate change, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute, and the World Wide Fund for Nature for achieving the Paris Agreement-mandated objective of holding the increase in the global average temperature to below 2˚C above pre-industrial levels. It certifies the CO2 emission reduction targets of companies that are in line with emissions reduction scenarios based on scientific facts.
In order to achieve these targets, the Nikon Group will continue working to reduce CO2 emissions associated with its business activities, including improving the efficiency of production and development processes that make full use of its technological capabilities, and the use of renewable energy. We also promote greenhouse gas emissions reduction throughout the entire supply chain, such as low-carbon products, improving transportation efficiency, and working with procurement partners, and aim to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.
