Global Environment Actions and SDGs

Brother Global Environmental Conservation and the related SDGs

SUSTAINSABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS Continue to make efforts to help the global environment

“Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)” consisting of 17 goals and 169 targets was unanimously adopted by the 193 member states in U.N. General Assembly, and they are common goals for the international community.

The Brother Group has actively undertaken the issues to create shared values for the future prosperity to contribute to the SDGs goals through businesses under the Brother Group Environmental Policy.

Regarding social critical issues such as climate change, resource depletion, environmental pollution and destruction of the ecosystem, we formulated Brother Group Environmental Vision 2050 in 2018, set Mid-term Target for FY2030 as a milestone, and engage in various efforts.

Brother Group Environmental Vision 2050

Established on March 19, 2018

The Brother Group Environmental Vision 2050 recognizes environmental issues in society as business risks for the Brother Group and clearly states the Brother Group’s continuous commitment to solving these issues over the long term as a company providing products using bio-based such as paper, sewing thread and cloth while utilizing energy and resources.

Three key issues for the Brother Group

SDGs

Reduction of CO2 Emissions

The vision indicates that the Brother Group will contribute to creating a carbon-free society that the Paris Agreement aims to achieve (i.e., substantially eliminating greenhouse gas emissions.)

Mid-term target for FY2030 30% reduction (from FY2015 levels)

[Scopes 1 and 2] Achieve 30% reduction from the FY2015 level
[Scope 3] Categories 1, 11, and 12 Achieve 30% reduction from the FY2015 level

※The mid-term target for FY2030 on reduction of CO2 emissions has been recognized as a target based on scientific evidence by Science Based Targets (SBT), an international initiative established to help achieve greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.

Resource Circulation

The vision aims to ensure sustainable use of natural resources in business operations and minimize the environmental impact due to wastes.

Mid-term target for FY2030 Reduction of new natural resources

Mechanisms for circulate resources have been established throughout the value chain. Efforts have been made to reduce the amount of new natural resources that are used in main products.
The group’s manufacturing facilities continuously endeavor to ensure efficient use of water resources and proper treatment of wastewater.

Environmental Vision 2050 Maximize resource circulation

Toward 2050, the Brother Group will maximize resource circulation to ensure the sustainable use of natural resources and minimize the environmental impact due to wastes.

Biodiversity Conservation

The vision aims to minimize the environmental impact of business operations and promote activities to restore and conserve the ecosystem beyond the impact.

Mid-term target for FY2030 Reduction of ecosystem

The Brother Group will assess the environmental impact of its business operations on the ecosystem and the effectiveness of restoration and conservation activities, and work to avoid and reduce the environmental impact on the ecosystem.
The manufacturing and sales facilities of the entire group will work on ecosystem restoration and conservation activities on a voluntary basis depending on the situation in each region.

Environmental Vision 2050 Positive net gain for biodiversity

By 2050, the Brother Group will minimize the environmental impact of business operations on the ecosystem and promote activities to restore and conserve the ecosystem beyond the impact.
