Metrics and Targets
The overwhelming majority of the Group's greenhouse gas emissions in its supply chain come from Scope 3, Category 11 (use of sold products). We have set a goal of reducing CO2 emissions from product use by 30% from FY2010 levels by FY2030. However, this goal cannot be achieved simply by improving the performance and fuel efficiency of conventional diesel-powered construction machinery, and the widespread use of battery-powered construction machinery is a key factor. We launched a lithium-ion battery-powered compact excavator in July 2021, but we expect that it will take a certain amount of time for such machines to become commonplace. Therefore, we expect that the pace of achieving the 30% reduction target will accelerate in the late 2020s and as we approach 2030. The use of our products generates Scope 1 or Scope 2 emissions for users of our products, and under the 2°C scenario, the use of battery-powered construction machinery may accelerate as a result of changes in customer attitudes due to increased environmental awareness, public subsidies, or tighter regulations.
We will take this "transition risk/opportunity" as an opportunity for business development and work on product development to expand our lineup of battery-powered construction equipment.
