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.

Participated in Earth Hour, an environmental event aimed at helping to combat global warming


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, 2020, a total of 57 companies from the Nikon Group took part in the campaign.

  • *A worldwide environmental campaign organized by the World Wildlife Fund (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.
