TCFD: Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures

Nippon Sanso Holdings expressed its support for the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)* in November 2019. We have already been working to reduce environmental impacts and save energy, and to expand its lineup of products that contribute to reducing GHG emissions. However, based on the final recommendations of the TCFD, we will enhance these initiatives even further and phase in improvements to our relevant information disclosure as we work to increase the corporate value of the entire Group.

* The TCFD announced its final recommendation report in June 2017, which recommends that all companies and other organizations disclose information about governance, strategies, risk management, indicators, and targets regarding climate change-related risks and opportunities.
