Supporting initiatives for a decarbonized society and SDGs

Toward business initiatives for a carbon-free society.

Our efforts toward a carbon-free society are evolving in many ways.

In Japan, the Global Warming Countermeasures Plan has set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in FY2030 by 26.0% compared to FY2013. In particular, in the household sector, it is a guideline to reduce by about 40%, and it is necessary to set an ambitious target to further reduce this to zero.

Under these circumstances, we are promoting the challenge of structurally transforming energy demand by reforming consumption patterns and aiming for carbon neutrality in general life in collaboration with our partner, Electricity Sharing Co., Ltd.

Among the 11 items in this business, Ptp P trading of energy-saving vegetables, formulation of a fishery food distribution platform for consumers with high environmental sensitivity, and a project to reduce food loss to zero as much as possible have been formulated. We are working hard to realize this through cooperation with producers, processors, food service companies, etc. who have close transactions through business.

We will continue to actively support the challenge of a carbon-free society through our participation in the SDGS, which is a global trend.

Field Service Co., and Ltd., our group company, which operates company cafeterias and provides “bento” lunch boxes at several construction sites managed by real estate developers, works together with local JA (Japan Agricultural Cooperatives) to reduce food loss and waste. Its subsidiary company, which cooks meals for lunch boxes,  purchases unsold vegetables from JA and provides meals made of these unsold vegetables to company cafeterias.

With the use of blockchain technology, spread the idea of SDGs to the end users.

Japan’s recognition rate of SDGs was the lowest among 28 sampling countries in the 2018 survey. While major firms and organizations incorporate the concept of SDGs into their CSR activities, people in Japan are still not actively embracing the idea.

Taking this result seriously,  the Ministry of the Environment and the mass media which is deeply involved in SDGs activilites started to appeal to the public about the importance of thinking about SDGs as their own issue.
