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.

Climate Change Metrics and Targets

Metrics Targets
CO2 emissions from product use Reduce by 30% from FY2010 levels by FY2030. (Basic unit)
CO2 emissions at factories(in Japan) Reduce by 50% from FY2015 levels by FY2030. (Basic unit)
Renewable energy ratio of electricity used in factories (in Japan) 100% (already achieved)

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Only Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 Category 11 (emissions from the use of sold products) are identified and disclosed at this stage.
We will make efforts to identify and disclose information on other categories of Scope 3 emissions.
For Scope 3 Category 11, we set lifetime GHG emissions for each model and multiply them by the number of units produced in each fiscal year.
Therefore, Scope 3 Category 11 is only calculated for Takeuchi Japan, which produces construction machinery.
 

Scope 1: Direct GHG emissions occur from sources that are owned or controlled by the company. (fuel combustion, industrial processes, etc.)
Scope 2: Indirect GHG emissions from the use of electricity, heat and steam supplied by other companies.
Scope 3: Indirect GHG emissions other than Scope 1 and Scope 2 (emissions of other companies related to the activities of the company)
