About Mid-term Targets
―From CO2 Minimization in 2050 to Carbon Neutrality in 2040―

Environmental Action Plan 2025

To achieve the goals of Environmental Challenge 2050 and to promote environmental conservation activities with the JTEKT Group, JTEKT has formulated Environmental Action Plan 2025 with policies for initiatives and concrete targets that are shared and used by the entire JTEKT Group.
In FY2020, to address the issues of marine plastic pollution, JTEKT set concrete targets for reducing single-use plastic parts for non-JTEKT-controlled plastics at high risk of becoming marine plastics.

Initiatives for carbon neutrality

To realize the minimization of CO2 emissions set forth in JTEKT Environmental Challenge 2050, JTEKT has set the targets for carbon neutrality to achieve virtually zero CO2 emissions by 2040. In addition to the emissions (Scopes 1 & 2) by JTEKT, the company will strive to achieve carbon neutrality that includes emissions from its suppliers considering the life cycles of products. In FY2021, JTEKT has newly established Carbon Neutral Strategy Dept. as a company-wide cross-sectional department under the direct control of the president and three new environmental subcommittees to take a multidirectional approach to achieve carbon neutrality at the earliest possible time.

Setting the total CO2 emission target for 2030

JTEKT has set mid-to-long-term targets for 2030 as a milestone toward the achievement of the minimization of CO2 emissions set forth in JTEKT Environmental Challenge 2050.
The challenge target for total emissions is consistent with the “1.5-degree target” agreed in the 2016 Paris Agreement (which aims to maintain temperature rise within 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to the temperature level of the pre-industrial revolution). The CO2 reduction target company-wide is 50% compared to FY 2013, and the CO2 reduction target for JTEKT alone is 60% or more compared to FY2013. We aim to achieve the targets through energy reduction by production technology innovations, daily improvement at plants, and introduction of renewable energy.

【Conversion factor used to calculate CO2 emissions】
In the management of CO2 emissions per basic unit, the conversion factor is fixed so that the company’s improvement effect can be evaluated.
For the management of the total emission volume, calculations are made using the actual conversion factor (market-based) for each purchased power company per fiscal year to better represent the actual CO2 emission volume.

Independent Outside Director Iwao Okamoto talks about JTEKT’s initiatives, challenges, and prospects for achieving carbon neutrality.
