Collaboration with Society and Environmental Communication (Eco-Friendly)

Basic Stance

DENSO engages in collaborations that transcend business domains and proactively discloses environment-related information to all stakeholders.

Specific Initiatives

(1) Disclosure of Environmental Information

DENSO discloses environment-related information via its corporate website.
In 2019, we pledged our support for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Since doing so, we have been carrying out a scenario analysis regarding the impact of climate change on our businesses and the opportunities and risks related to this impact. We have also been making efforts to reflect the results of this analysis in our business strategies, and are disclosing the details of these efforts in accordance with TCFD recommendations.
In addition, we have received a ranking of B in CDP’s* climate change research. We will endeavor to improve our methods for disclosing environmental information going forward, as well as the content of our information.

* CDP: This international non-governmental organization works with institutional investors to disclose global companies’ strategies on the issue of climate change and their greenhouse gas emissions.

(2) Participation in Exhibits in Japan and Overseas

The DENSO Group participates in exhibitions, which it considers to be an opportunity for promoting a greater understanding of its environmental initiatives and engaging in exchanges with a variety of people. These include exhibits of environment-friendly products and technologies as well as interactive events. We also introduce advanced environmental technologies at motor shows and other events held around the world.

(3) Promoting Coordination with Related Organizations

DENSO is a charter member of the Environmental Partnership Organizing Club (EPOC), a private organization of 280 major companies from the Chubu region established in 2000.

Since 2012, DENSO has been a leading company behind working groups investigating the creation of a recycling-oriented society in the Chubu region with the aim of promoting the formation of such a society. DENSO has attempted to improve the knowledge, technologies, and information exchange with EPOC members through study meetings and visits; the investigation of issues pertaining to technological development and commercialization through industry-government-academia collaborations; and the dissemination of the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) and other environment-related information.
