Environment
Recognizing climate change and environmental impact in the process from procurement to disposal, we have formulated "Environmental Vision 2050" in order to realize a fulfilling society that coexists with nature. We are working in consideration of the environment in order to achieve both a long-term sustainable society and corporate activities.

Environmental Vision 2050

To build a fulfilling society, Tamron formulated Environmental Vision 2050, which outlines the long-term direction of Tamron's environmental initiatives.

In light of trends in climate change due to global warming in recent years, Tamron has formulated Environmental Vision2050. To build a fulfilling society, we will engage in activities to achieve three visions, a decarbonized society, a resource recycling society and a society that exists in harmony with nature.

Policies and measures to achieve a decarbonized society

  • Promote energy savings and reduce CO2 emissions generated by air conditioning equipment and the product manufacturing process
  • Promote the introduction of renewable energies

Policies and measures to achieve a resource recycling society

  • Work to reduce and recycle waste, and contribute to the reduction of ocean plastic pollution
    (business sites: reduce waste plastic, products: use recycled materials for packaging plastics and reduce volume)
  • Work to reduce water consumption and recycle water

Policies and measures to achieve a society in harmony with the environment

  • Strive to preserve biodiversity through coordination and collaboration with local communities
  • Endeavor to reduce harmful chemical substances and implement appropriate management

Environmental Objectives and Targets Achieved

The CSR theme "Environment" is based on the following policy.
“Tamron recognizes that global environmental issues are issued shared by humanity, endeavors to reduce the impact on and conserve the environment, and contributes to the development of a sustainable society in harmony with the environment.”
We will contribute to the global environment through the conservation of biodiversity and efficient use of resources and energy through our business.

TCFD

Tamron agrees with the purpose of TCFD and will work on the development of the recommended framework and the disclosure of climate-related information.

CO2 Reduction

Tamron is reducing CO2 emissions in its business to realize a decarbonized society. In July 2020, Tamron reviewed its basic unit targets up to now, changed it to a target of reducing CO2 absolute amount by 30% in 2030 by 30% compared to 2015. For the achievement the goal, we also set single year target of 2% reduction in 2020 by backcasting that goal.

Initiatives to Become a Resource Recycling Society

To create a sustainable society without depleting the earth’s limited resources, it is necessary to engage in manufacturing with minimal resource and energy usage, reduce waste and create a recycling-oriented society that reuses resources.
