Sustainable Development Goals
In September 2015, all members (193 countries) of the United Nations adopted 17 goals and 169 targets as priority issues to be worked on globally by 2030 so as to realize a sustainable society for everyone in the world. These are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Companies are looked upon to take the lead in developing and providing measures and technologies to solve these issues, and contribute to the promotion of sustainable development.Relation between Rengo’s Initiatives and SDGs
Formulating Targets for Fiscal 2030
• Reduce CO₂ emissions by 26% when compared to fiscal 2013 levels*
• Renewable energy rate of 25%
Rengo states our long-term vision working toward 2050 in our Rengo Group Environmental Charter, and works toward realizing this vision by undertaking substantial reductions through our Eco Challenge 020 which sets 2020 as the fiscal year of achievement. With the implementation of the Paris Agreement, we have set our target for CO₂ reduction by fiscal 2030 as 26% following the CO₂ reduction target declared by Japan. As an initiative to achieve this, we have set a target of 25% for renewable energy against total energy input. Rengo will continue to achieve further CO₂ reductions through means such as energy-saving activities and introduction of energy-saving equipment.
