Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures（TCFD）
We consider addressing climate change as one of our materiality, and we endorsed the TCFD* recommendations and joined the TCFD Consortium, which consists of companies and financial institutions that support the TCFD recommendations, in March 2022. Please see below for information disclosure based on the TCFD recommendations.
Carbon Disclosure Project（CDP）
We take part in projects where CDP is working with global institutional investors to require companies to disclose their strategies on climate change and their greenhouse gas emissions.
In December 2022, we were recognized by CDP with a score level “B-” rating (Management) as a company that manages risks and impacts from environmental issues.
