SBTi Approves Epson's GHG Reduction Targets

Seiko Epson Corporation (TSE: 6724, "Epson") today announced that the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)*1 has approved Epson's global greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets. SBTi recognized Epson's targets as being science-based and in line with keeping a global temperature rise this century to well below 2 degrees Celsius, a central aim of the Paris Agreement.


Climate change and global warming are serious issues for society, and Epson is helping to work toward a solution. We have articulated our long-term goals in "Environmental Vision 2050" and are actively working to reduce the environmental footprint of our products and business activities across the value chain by drawing on the strength of our efficient, compact, and precision technologies. In September of this year, Epson developed two new targets (see below) to combat climate change and submitted them to the SBTi for validation and approval.
Approved Targets (baseline year: fiscal year ended March 31, 2018)
Reduce scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 19% by the 2025 fiscal year.
Reduce scope 3 (categories 1 and 11)*2 GHG emissions as a percentage of value added by 44% by the 2025 fiscal year.
Epson's stated goal is to be an indispensable company, one that is committed to openness, customer satisfaction and sustainability. We tackle customer needs, address societal challenges, and create unique environmental value through our business activities with the aim of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations and of creating a better and more sustainable future.
