Selected as "A List" in CDP Climate Change Report for the First Time
Obayashi is selected as "A List" in the Climate Change Report 2020 issued by CDP (*1), an international non-profit organization. The CDP surveyed more than 9,600 companies and municipalities worldwide in CDP Climate Change 2020. It assessed them in terms of their activities and strategy toward climate change. Companies with particularly good efforts are named to the Climate Change A List. In 2020, 271 companies (of which 53 were Japanese companies) were named to the A List.
Having established the long-term vision "Obayashi Sustainability Vision 2050" and having set decarbonization as one of our targets for the years 2040 to 2050, Obayashi Corporation is working throughout our Group and supply chains to realize a sustainable society. Currently, we aim to realize this vision by conducting business activities designed to prevent global warming. These include setting "Establish an Environmentally Responsible Society," which includes reducing CO2 emissions, as one of our ESG Materialities, and disclosing climate-related information based on the TCFD recommendations in November 2020.
The Obayashi Group will continue to actively engage with all our stakeholders including our supply chain with the aim of realizing a sustainable society and increasing corporate value.
Also, we will endeavor to disclose important information on ESG initiatives such as climate change countermeasures.
