Solasto aims to realize its corporate philosophy, “People. Technology. Supporting comfortable living and energetic communities,” and continue to contribute to society by providing solutions to social issues and valuable services throughout its business activities. To continuously grow together with society based on this philosophy, we have identified important issues that we must prioritize and formulated them into five sustainability themes. “Consideration for the environment and resources” is one of the five themes, and the Group aims to reduce its environmental impact. In particular, we believe that climate change has the potential to affect our business activities, including abnormal weather events damaging elderly care and child care facilities or decreased labor productivity and service quality due to heat stress.
Solasto Group has set long-term environmental targets for reducing its greenhouse gas emissions (Note 1). It aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions intensity by 70% (compared to FY2021) in FY2030, and achieve net-zero emissions by FY2050 (Note 2). Regarding the total volume of its greenhouse gas emissions, the Group expects to reduce emissions by 30% (compared to FY2021) in FY2030, taking into consideration the growth of the scope of the Group’s business (Note 3). In addition, the plan is to take measures to conserve energy and convert to alternative energy sources to reduce emissions and offset the remaining balance of emissions through measures that are able to provide a high degree of transparency.
