The EBARA Group aims to achieve net zero GHG emissions by 2050, through reducing GHG emissions within our company and value chain.
GHG: Abbreviation for “greenhouse gases”
55% reduction: Estimated and calculated based on our company's GHG emissions for 2018 and net sales targets for 2030, in accordance with the Japanese government's 2030 goal (46% reduction compared to FY2013).
Emissions in accordance with GHG protocols
Through the following measures, the EBARA Group will achieve carbon neutrality in 2050 and contribute to the creation of a sustainable society.
|<Scope 1 + 2 (emissions by our own company)>||<Scope 3 (value chain)>|
1) Expansion of switch to green power
2) Promotion of energy-saving and production innovations in internal business activities
3) Conversion from fossil fuels to non-fossil alternatives (promotion of electrification)
4) Utilization of carbon pricing
・Introduction of internal carbon pricing (ICP)
・Utilization of certificates and credits
|1) Emissions reduction: conversion to energy-saving and resource-saving products, promotion of circular economy businesses by providing energy-saving and low-GHG services and support, collaborations between suppliers and customers, etc.
2) Removal, recovery, etc.: supply of GHG decomposition products, expansion of CCS/CCUS, etc.
3) Introduction of renewable energy: hydrogen, geothermal, solar thermal, etc.
4) Carbon recycling and emission control: hydrogen, chemical recycling, etc.
5) Absorption: forest conservation credits, etc.
The plan for city gas and fossil fuels currently in use is to promote electrification and increase the proportion of electric power as much as possible. In addition, CO2 emissions are expected to be significantly reduced by actively switching the power being used to green power such as photovoltaic power generation systems, which are planned for installation at major domestic bases such as Fujisawa and Kumamoto.
Photovoltaic power generation equipment has been installed on the roof of a plant in the Fujisawa District (Kanagawa Prefecture) since 2014, to supply electric power to a separate office building.
A mega solar power system (1.6 MW) is currently under construction on the roof of a new plant which started operation in 2021 in the same Fujisawa District. From now on, the EBARA Group will promote efforts to switch to green power proactively.
