Omron acquires Science Based Targets initiative certification

Omron has acquired a certification from the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) for the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets set in its long-term vision, Shaping the Future 2030 (SF2030).

This certification recognises these GHG reduction targets as science-based targets to achieve the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius advocated by the Paris Agreement.

Omron identified key sustainability initiatives in the SF2030 Long-Term Vision that began in April 2022, for the first time as part of its long-term vision. The SF2030 engages in the five key initiatives to realise the Omron Group Vision. One key initiative strives to achieve decarbonisation and lower environmental impact. Therein, Omron will work to fulfil its social responsibilities and further enhance its competitiveness as a company recognising the risks and opportunities brought by climate change in accordance with the Omron Environmental Policy.

The GHG emissions reduction targets certified by the SBTi are intended to implement an initiative to reduce GHG emissions throughout the value chain under the SF2030, using measures outlined by the Omron Environmental Policy, which include providing products and services that contribute to decarbonization, improving energy usage efficiency, and expanding the use of renewable energy.

Omron will endeavour toward decarbonisation and a lower environmental impact throughout the entire value chain in an effort to not only resolve the environmental challenges faced by customers and society as well as contribute to a more sustainable society but also enhance corporate value.
