The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)  has approved the KDDI Group's CO2 Emission reduction targets. KDDI will continuously work to further optimize the energy consumption of its base stations and telecommunication facilities and accelerate its transition to renewable energy sources, and thus KDDI works towards the realization of the latest target for the entire KDDI Group .
|Scope1||Direct GHG emissions that occur from sources that are controlled or owned by organization||Reduce CO2 emissions to 50% of FY 2019 levels by FY 2030|
|Scope2||Indirect GHG emissions associated with usage of electricity, heat and steam provided by external actors.|
|Scope3||Indirect GHG emissions other than Scope 2 emissions (3rd parties' emissions relevant to KDDI's business operations)||Reduce CO2 emissions by 14% by FY 2030 compared to FY 2019 levels|
In May, 2020, KDDI announced "KDDI Sustainable Action: Our power to make connections will help create a brighter future for all," KDDI's SDGs with an eye on 2030, and declared that we would proactively accelerate its transition to renewable energy sources, and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, while helping society reduce its environmental impact by utilizing ICTs.
KDDI will endeavor to solve these issues by leveraging the telecommunication operator's unique strengths utilizing 5G, IoT and other technologies, as well as identify risks of climate change and other social issues.
KDDI will unceasingly promote the integration of telecommunications and life design and connect people, companies and society to help society grow sustainably while further contributing to initiatives to save the planet in collaboration with a wide range of partners through achieving this target.
