GS Yuasa Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange: 6674 “GS Yuasa”) today announced its “GY 2030 Greenhouse Gas Target”, aiming for a reduction in net greenhouse gas emissions of at least 30% by fiscal 2030.
Recognizing that climate change caused by global warming is a crucially important societal issue, GS Yuasa is working to reduce the volume of greenhouse gases it emits in the course of its business activities.
Although GS Yuasa announced a greenhouse gas emissions target in its Fifth Mid-Term Management Plan (a net 6% reduction from the fiscal 2018 level by fiscal 2022), and is currently working toward achieving this, it has now also set a new longer-term target to fulfill its corporate responsibility to contribute to the transition to a decarbonized society.
GS Yuasa will be implementing a wide range of measures aimed at reducing the volume of greenhouse gases emitted in the course of its business activities by at least 30% compared with the fiscal 2018 level by fiscal 2030.
In light of the policies of the Japanese government and the international situation, the GS Yuasa Group will continue to further bolster the implementation of measures aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and achieving carbon neutrality.
