J-POWER Group’s corporate philosophy states that, “We will meet people’s needs for energy without fail, and play our part in the sustainable development of Japan and the rest of the world.” Based on this philosophy, we have growing our business globally through relationships of trust with our stakeholders.
Today, supplying energy steadily—while addressing climate change—is the most important challenge our society faces as we move into the future.
Under these circumstances, the J-POWER Group formulated “BLUE MISSION 2050” in February 2021. We are taking on the challenge of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and have set the goal of reducing CO2 emissions from our domestic power generation operations by 46% in 2030 compared to actual results in FY2013.
To achieve this goal, we will use the comprehensive technology and knowledge that we have gained in Japan and overseas to take on the challenge of steadily supplying energy while addressing climate change.
We have chosen five core issues for promoting ESG management: energy supply, response to climate change, respect for people, engagement with local communities, and enhancement of our business foundation. These core issues define our medium- to long-term sustainability issues (materiality). By helping to resolve these issues, the entire Group will continue to take on challenges so that we can contribute to bringing about a prosperous society and achieve the SDG goals.
