Global Environment Policy/Environment Challenging Ono Vision(ECO VISION 2050)

リード文

The impact of global warming, including extreme weather events, is increasing year by year, and efforts to prevent global warming have become an important challenges for the international community. The Paris Agreement at COP21 calls for limiting the average global temperature increase to less than 2 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels, with the goal of essentially reducing greenhouse gas emissions from human activities to zero. To this end, we have established an environmental vision (ECO VISION 2050) based on our "Global Environmental Policy". Recognizing the corporate social responsibility for the environment, we will promote environmentally friendly activities in all of our business activities in order to realize a richer global environment.

Environmental Vision

ONO has established a medium- and long-term environmental challenge vision for 2050, named “Environmental Challenge Ono Vision (ECO VISION 2050)” to realize a sustainable society.

ECO VISION 2050

Background for the establishment of vision

In recent years, the global environmental issues including climate change and other issues have become serious. In the future of 2050, it is expected that people's healthy and sound life will be threatened due to various threats such as water and food shortages, increase of new diseases, devastating natural disasters and so on.
In order to promote the creation of a healthy and sound society through the discovery and development of innovative pharmaceutical products under the corporate philosophy to be "Dedicated to the Fight against Disease and Pain", it is important that we recognize that our business activities are supported by a sound global environment and that we will strengthen our activities toward the resolution of environmental challenge. We believe that such activities are not only our corporate responsibility for the environment, but also lead to build the foundation for sustainable business activities.
We will challenge to reduce the environmental burden in anticipation of 2050 based on the ECO VISION 2050 so that people can welcome a healthy and sound society.

Targets (Medium- to Long-term Targets and Fiscal Year Targets) and Results

To realize "ECO VISION 2050," we have set 3 priority items: "Realization of a decarbonized society," "Realization of a water recycling society," and "Realization of a resource recycling society," and have set specific medium-to long-term targets for greenhouse gas, water, and waste in 2019. We have also set annual targets.

Greenhouse gas

Medium- to long-term targets and fiscal year targets

Our medium- to long-term greenhouse gas reduction targets are classified by the SBTi as the most ambitious "1.5 °C target." For more information, please see here (Environmental Initiatives). As for energy, we will increase the use of renewable energy in line with the RE100 target that we joined in June 2020.

Roadmap for achieving the ECO VISION 2050
Results (progress) against targets
Targets FY2020 results
  1. Reduce GHG emissions (Scopes 1+2) (on a market basis*1) by 55% by FY2030 and to zero by FY2050 (compared to FY2017)【ECO VISION 2050】
    • *1  Market-basis GHG emissions volumes are calculated based on emissions coefficients published by each electric power company.
  1. Reduce GHG emissions (Scopes 1+2) by 12.6% compared to FY2017
  1. Reduce GHG emissions (Scope 3) by 30% by FY2030 and by 60% by FY2050 (compared to FY2017)【ECO VISION 2050】
  1. Reduce GHG emissions (Scope 3) by 27.6% compared to FY2017 (Scope 3 results are for FY2019 because the FY2020 CSR reports of our major suppliers and wholesale distributors had not been released at the time of calculation)
