Selected as "Supplier Engagement Leader" for the second year in a row



Obayashi is selected as "Supplier Engagement Leaderboard" in the Supplier Engagement Rating by CDP (*1), an international non-profit organization.

The Supplier Engagement Rating evaluates the climate change initiatives of enterprises' entire supply chains in four categories: governance, targets, Scope 3 emissions (*2), and value chain engagement. Obayashi Corporation, in addition to being named an "A List" company in the CDP's Climate Change Report 2021, has earned the highest score in two categories for the second year in a row.

In the 2021 Supplier Engagement Rating, of the approximately 12,000 companies subject to evaluation, more than 500 companies worldwide and 105 companies in Japan, including Obayashi, have been recognized as Supplier Engagement Leaders.

Obayashi has formulated the long-term vision, "Obayashi Sustainability Vision 2050," based on our philosophy of "contribution to realizing a sustainable society." In its vision, Obayashi has set "decarbonization" as one of its goals for the period 2040 to 2050. In order to achieve "decarbonization," we are working to reduce CO2 emissions from the entire supply chain, including CO2 emitted from the business activities of the entire group as well as CO2 emitted during the production process of construction materials and during the operation of buildings delivered to customers. Specifically, the Group is working together with its supply chain to reduce CO2 emissions by promoting and expanding ZEB, converting large architecture to wooden structures and interiors, and promoting the development and commercialization of low-carbon materials such as Clean-Crete®.

The Obayashi Group will continue to promote ESG management through its business activities with the aim of realizing a sustainable society and enhancing corporate value in cooperation with all people involved in its business, including those in the supply chain.
