CSR(Corporate Social Responsibility):Statement on Carbon Neutrality

Statement on Carbon Neutrality

TANAKA Precious Metals (the "TANAKA Group") will take on the challenge of addressing global warming, a social issue with a global scale, through aiming to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and actively introducing within the Group and in society technologies that contribute to a decarbonized society.

To reduce greenhouse gases arising from business activities, we will continuously undertake emission reduction activities—such as increasing energy efficiency, improving manufacturing processes, and adopting the use of green energy—at our plants and offices.

At the same time, we will provide products that meet the expectations of customers working toward a decarbonized society, including catalysts that contribute toward greenhouse gas reduction and high-performance materials such as those used in electric vehicles. We will also strengthen our precious metal recycling business to contribute toward a circular economy, thereby creating a prosperous and sustainable future for the Earth with our own hands.

In addition, we will look at tree-planting and activities to preserve forest rejuvenation such as the creation of Tanaka Forest.

The TANAKA Group aims to achieve carbon neutrality through these activities.

In fiscal 2022, we will form a company-wide project team, Operation Polaris, directly controlled by myself to consider and implement specific measures. Going forward, the TANAKA Group will continue to provide value to customers and society as a whole through products and solutions that apply the unique characteristics of precious metals.
