WingArc1st embraces transparency by disclosing environmental impacts through CDP

WingArc1st Inc.

WingArc1st Inc. today announced that it has furthered its commitment to environmental transparency by disclosing its environmental impact through CDP, a global non-profit that runs the world's leading environmental disclosure platform. In the information disclosure, we reported the impact on our own business, including climate change-related risks and opportunities for FY2021, as well as the results of measuring carbon dioxide emissions and the year-on-year reduction in emissions per unit of sales.

Disclosing data around environmental impact is now a business norm. More than 680 financial institutions with US$130 trillion in assets and 280 purchasing organizations representing US$6.4 trillion in procurement spend requested environmental data from companies through CDP. A record 18,700+ companies responded in 2022.

We will continue to respond to the growing social demand for environmental transparency by financial institutions and customers.

■ WingArc1st's environmental initiatives
We aim to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for scope 1, 2 and 3 by 2030. For scope 1 and 2, we will convert electricity used to renewable energy to achieve the goal. For scope 3, we will contribute to the reduction of environmental impact through our products and services to archive net-zero indirect GHG emissions.

"Climate change and other sustainability issues must be addressed across the entire ecosystem of companies and industries. We will contribute to a sustainable society by supporting our customers' promotion of Green Transformation (GX) not only through our own emission reduction efforts but also by developing and providing a data platform that accelerates corporate DX. We will continue to formulate and manage monitoring indicators from various perspectives to maximize the environmental value created by GX through the ecosystem."

Jun Tanaka, CEO of WingArc1st Inc.

"Another year of extreme weather, including floods, droughts and record temperatures, has shown us that climate change is already posing a real and increasing risk to companies and their supply chains. Companies have a fundamental role to play in securing a sustainable net-zero, deforestation-free and water-secure world. It is only through measuring their environmental impact, risks and opportunities that they can manage them and prepare for the future. By disclosing through CDP, WingArc1st has taken a vital first step. I look forward to their continued dedication to transparency and action for the benefit of all people and the planet."
