 Taisei Corporation (President and Chief Executive Officer: Yoshiro AIKAWA, hereinafter “Taisei”) has been selected as member of the companies composing “A List”, by CDP*1, the international nonprofit environmental organization, in recognition of Taisei’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate climate change risks through its business activities, and more. Each year CDP rates companies on the basis of their efforts such as pioneering environmental initiatives and places the top-rated companies on its “Climate Change A List”.

 The Taisei Group considers the impact of climate change on its business as one of its key management issues and endorsed the TCFD recommendations*2 in July 2020, analyzing risks and business opportunities due to climate change and studying the measures to respond to them, which are reflected in the Medium-Term Business Plan, etc.

 In addition, the Taisei Group established “TAISEI Green Target 2050” as part of its long-term environmental target in 2021, in order to realize “virtually zero CO2 emissions from business activities by 2050”. Furthermore, we formulated the Taisei Group’s environmental target for the year 2030 as a milestone of the long-term target in this year 2022.

 Under the Group philosophy of “To Create a Vibrant Environment for All Members of Society”, Taisei continues to make group-wide efforts for “realizing a sustainable and environmentally conscious society” as outlined in its environmental policy.
