Yukiguni Maitake to Support the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures
We, Yukiguni Maitake Co., Ltd. (the "Company"), hereby announce our support for the Task Force on Climate- related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) recommendations 1, which call for appropriate disclosure of information on the financial impact of climate change on the Company.
We have been making efforts to reduce our environmental impact by using alternative energy sources with high energy conversion efficiency, reducing the volume of plastic materials by reviewing packaging forms and materials for mushroom products, and reducing CO₂ emissions in logistics by procuring raw materials in local areas.
With our support for the TCFD recommendations, we will further accelerate our efforts to realize a decarbonized society and disclose information in line with the TCFD recommendations. Over the medium to long term, we will continue to contribute to a sustainable society by addressing climate change and other social issues
1 TCFD refers to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, established by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) in 2015 by the request of G20 to examine how climate-related information should be disclosed, and how financial institutions should respond. TCFD published its final report in June 2017, and recommends companies to disclose items related to climate change-related risks and opportunities.
