Initiatives for Climate Change

Endorsement of the TCFD Recommendations

 The ID Group has declared its endorsement of the Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and is a participant in the TCFD Consortium of companies, financial institutions and other organizations that endorse the Recommendations. The Group is carrying out measures to respond to intensifying demands for action on climate change and achievement of zero carbon, which the Group has identified as materialities, in accordance with the framework of the TCFD.
By increasing the intensity and frequency of natural disasters such as severe rainfalls and major typhoons, climate change can impact the continuity of Group business. Moreover, carbon taxes and other restrictions on carbon emissions may be increased amid efforts to alleviate climate change by achieving carbon neutrality. On the other hand, demand can be expected to grow for products and IT solutions that contribute to the reduction of environmental impact by aiming for carbon neutrality.
For the reasons given above, the ID Group is striving to support the achievement of carbon neutrality for society as a whole. Our approach is to provide solutions and services that promote the reduction of environmental impact of society overall.





Governance

 The ID Group is committed to advancing sustainable management Group-wide. For this reason, we have built a framework for the active discussion and examination of concrete measures to deal with environmental issues, including the problem of climate change.
The Sustainability Committee, whose members include the President and Representative Director, analyzes the risks and opportunities that climate change presents for the Group. The Committee shares policies and other actions for responding to these issues, formulates action plans to deal with Group environmental issues and monitors progress.
The Sustainability Committee reports the details of its consultations to the Board of Directors, which debates and supervises policies, action plans and other actions to respond to environmental issues confronting the Group.
The ID Group also constructs an environmental management system (EMS) based on ISO 14001. The results of activities of the EMS are reported to the Board of Directors through the Management Meetings.


Strategy

Important risks and opportunities that may impact the Group are as follows.




Risk Management

 To respond to the wide range of risks it assumes in carrying out its business operations, the ID Group stipulates a Basic Risk Management Policy. The Group has also established a Group Risk Management Committee, which serves as an advisory body to the Board of Directors. Chaired by the President and Representative Director of the Company, this Committee includes members of the Board of Directors, Operating Executive Officers, the Presidents of Group companies and related officers and employees. The Group Risk Management Committee identifies, evaluates and manages phenomena that pose risks to the Group as a whole, including climate-change-related risks, and reports the results of its deliberations to the Board of Directors. With respect to climate change, the Analysis Subcommittee of the Group Risk Management Committee liaises with the Sustainability Committee to analyze the risks and opportunities that climate change presents for the Group, formulate action plans to deal with Group environmental issues, and monitor progress. In addition, the Board of Directors deliberates on and supervises response policies, action plans and other actions with respect to environmental issues.


Indicators and Targets

 In its evaluation of climate-related risks and opportunities, the Group has concluded that the impact of opportunities to provide IT solutions and services to deal with climate change is greater than that of the attendant risks. To reduce its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), the Group is conducting efforts focused on slashing electricity consumption at its head office and other offices. In the first half of FY2022, the Group’s head office will switch its energy supply fully to renewable energy.

【GHG Emissions】
To manage risks associated with climate change, the Group has set targets for reduction of GHGs, including CO2.

  By FY2025 the Group aims to reduce GHG emissions by 20.0% in comparison with FY2020.
  By FY2030 the Group aims to reduce GHG emissions by 30.0% in comparison with FY2020.




Protection of biodiversity

Manachan

The ID Group uses the manatee, a marine animal designated as an endangered species, as our company mascot. By featuring our mascot in illustrations, LINE stamps, etc., we help raise awareness for the marine environment.

In recent years, the problem of microplastics has grown increasingly serious. Microplastics occur when plastic PET bottles, straws, and other products are broken down into small fragments, ultimately becoming marine plastic debris that has a negative effect on the marine environment. In order to reduce plastic trash and improve the marine environment, we encourage ID Group employees to use their own drink tumblers.

Support for WWF (World Wildlife Fund) Japan

The ID Group supports WWF (World Wildlife Fund) Japan as a corporate member. WWF is a global environmental conservation organization that is active in more than 100 countries. It was established in Switzerland in 1961. WWF’s activities aim to build a future where humans and nature can live in harmony, mainly by protecting the diversity of life on earth, and minimizing the negative impact that human life has on the natural environment and wildlife.  Having always acknowledged that the preservation of the global environment is one of the most critical issues that all humans face, the ID Group has endeavored to protect the environment in all aspects of its corporate activities.  Modeled after the North American manatee, an animal designated as a threatened species, the ID Group’s mascot Mana-chan serves to protect the diversity of life and to encourage the improvement of the marine environment.  Through Mana-chan’s activities, we demonstrate our agreement with WWF Japan’s mission and principles of action, as well as continuing to support WWF Japan as a corporate member.
