Overcoming climate change
We will further reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by implementing energy-saving measures and introducing renewable energy.
- Having obtained approval for the “SBT for 1.5°C” target, raised our target for reducing GHG emissions to 50% across Scope 1 + 2, and 30% for Scope 3 (both by 2030, compared with 2019).
- Joined RE100 and set a target for the proportion of renewable energy in electric power used (100% by 2040).
- Reduced Kirin Brewery GHG emissions by 2% from the previous year by introducing heat pump systems.
- Moved to renewable energy for 100% of electric power purchased at Kirin Brewery's Nagoya Plant. Utilized electric power from large-scale solar power generation thanks to the introduction of a PPA model at four domestic plants.
