Contributing to Address Global Issues including Climate Change and Environmental Pollution
Throughout all areas of our business activities, Sun* Group acts in full consideration of environmental issues, such as prevention of pollution, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, mitigation and adaptation of climate change, and conservation of biodiversity and ecosystems, based on the thought that each employee, as corporate citizens, should be aware that addressing environmental issues is one of their social responsibilities. In addition, we make efforts to reduce our environmental burden by reducing waste, promoting energy and resource conservation, and conducting corporate activities based on the risks and opportunities that climate change imposes on the business environment.
In order to understand the risks, opportunities, and impacts of future climate change on our business activities, Sun* Group conducted an analysis of projected changes in the external environment in accordance with the framework proposed by the TCFD*1 (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures). As a result, we recognize that there are significant opportunities in our business domain, such as further increase in DX demand, while risks are relatively small. We will continue to explore the possibility of expanding our business domain with regard to opportunities, while minimizing risks while also assessing cost-effectiveness.
