Environmental Vision 2050

Initiatives for a Carbon-Free Society

Shindengen has established our "Environmental Vision 2050" for the purpose of promoting group-wide activities focusing on environmentally responsible action as one of the important business tasks. Under this vision, the Shindengen Group aims to contribute to lessening the environmental burden and to become a global green-leading company through the development of clean energy products, energy-saving products, and other initiatives.

Environmental Vision

The Environmental Vision 2050 defines the sustainable society towards which the Shindengen Group aspires as “decarbonization”, “a recycle-oriented society”, and “a society in Harmony with Nature”, and we focus on this ideal not only in the Shindengen Group's business activities, but throughout our entire value chain; implementing the following initiatives aimed at minimizing environmental burden by the year 2050.
In addition, we have also established the Environmental Targets in 2030 as a milestone towards the Environmental Vision 2050, which is surely linked to “Shindengen’s SDGs” issued by the Shindengen Group.
