Environmental Issues

Formulated on December 1, 2022, the KOKUSAI ELECTRIC Way lays out challenges that we need to address, such as working to reduce environmental impacts and solve environmental problems, addressing climate change across the entire supply chain, and using resources effectively. 

The Group has reevaluated its mission to protect the environment in terms of how we should contribute to solving the many environmental problems across the globe. 
We will identify environmental challenges that need to be addressed by delving deeply into the risks and opportunities for the Group based on the SDGs*1, and translate them into environmental action plans to drive activities.
