Disclosure in Line with TCFD Recommendations

Worldwide, the severity of climate change and other global environment issues is increasing. Japan is no exception. Weather abnormalities have caused many large natural disasters and have greatly impacted Japan. Companies cannot overlook the impact of climate change. Against this backdrop, we believe that climate change is an important issue we should address in our sustainability-oriented management, and that the risks and opportunities accompanying climate change will greatly impact our business strategies.
The Company expressed its support for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations in 2022 and is involved in the TCFD consortium, a discussion forum for the companies and financial institutes supporting the recommendations.
Based on the TCFD recommendations, we will continue to disclose information about governance, strategies, risk management, metrics and targets regarding our actions to address climate change in pursuit of a sustainable society.
