Asahi Kasei Group's Carbon Neutrality Policy

In accordance with its Group Mission, the Asahi Kasei Group is committed to contributing to life and living for people around the world. The Asahi Kasei Group has long been aware that climate change is a global issue that will have a signifcant impact on both the natural environment and society, and we see it as our mission to use the scientifc expertise we have cultivated since our founding to deal with this issue leveraging our combined strength.

In May 2021, the Asahi Kasei Group adopted a new policy for carbon neutrality.

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emission targets for the Asahi Kasei Group

2050 Carbon neutral

2030 Emissions reduction of 30% or more (from fscal 2013)*

  • Scope 1 (direct GHG emissions) and

Scope 2 (indirect emissions use of electricity, heat, and steam supplied by other companies), absolute quantity

While our former target was to reduce GHG emissions relative to sales (emissions intensity), we have changed to an absolute reduction target to clarify our path toward the goal of becoming carbon neutral.

Initiative Policy

In addition to reducing GHG emissions from our own business activities, we believe that it is also important to help to reduce GHG emissions in society through our diverse array of technologies and businesses to deal with climate change. In April 2021, we launched a Green Solution Project reporting directly to the President, and we are working to create new businesses for a carbon neutral society.

Regarding "Care for Earth," we are committed to addressing climate change issues group-wide, both in terms of (1) reducing the amount of GHGs emitted by our own business activities and (2) helping to reduce GHGs throughout society through our businesses and technologies.
