Promoting a Decarbonized Society

The Nikon Group recognizes that, in order to realize the goal of building a decarbonized society, it is important to implement measures not just within the Nikon Group, but in the supply chain as well. We are formulating strategies in each production process to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions throughout the product lifecycle.

Medium- to long-term goals aiming toward the realization of a decarbonized society

The Nikon Group has set a greenhouse gas emissions reduction target for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2031 as part of the Nikon Medium-Term Environmental Goals, and is implementing measures to achieve this target. This target has been certified by the Science Based Targets (SBT) initiative as a scientifically based goal aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050.

Medium- to long-term goals aiming toward the realization of a decarbonized society
  • *1Scope 1: Direct greenhouse gas emissions from the use of fuel on site.
  • *2Scope 2: Indirect greenhouse gas emissions from the consumption of purchased electricity or heat.
  • *3Scope 3: Indirect greenhouse gas emissions related to business activities in the supply chain (excluding emissions already included in Scope 1 and 2).

Main initiatives and results in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021

Every year, all the Nikon Group (including non-manufacturing companies) is urged to participate in Earth Hour*, an environmental activity for which the purpose is to raise awareness of the need to combat global warming. In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, a total of 54 companies from the Nikon Group took part in the campaign.

  • *An environmental campaign organized by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). People around the world show their desire to stop global warming and protect the global environment by switching off the lights at the same time on the same day.
