In October 2021, Casio conducted a general reassessment of the existing Casio Environmental Vision 2050 and Casio Group Environmental Policy, and restructured them to create the Casio Group Environmental Principles, which comprise the following elements.
- Casio Group Environmental Vision
- Casio Group Basic Policies on the Environment
- Casio Group Environmental Action Guidelines
- Casio Green Targets 2024
Building on the same shared principles, this restructuring unifies all of the elements, from the Casio Group Environmental Vision at the top, down to the Casio Green Targets 2024, which are targets for separate environmental initiatives taken by each organization. The restructuring also ensures that long-term policies and short-term initiatives are integrated and consistent.
Positioned just below the Vision, the Casio Group Basic Policies on the Environment establish long-term approaches for addressing the three material environmental issues of realizing a decarbonized society, building a recycling society, and living in harmony with nature. Next, the Casio Group Environmental Action Guidelines establish a course of action for each value chain from a life-cycle perspective. Finally, the Casio Green Targets 2024 include targets and KPIs for the coming three years, which are based on the long-term approaches for addressing material environmental issues and tailored to each organization’s function. Thus, they represent clearly defined indicators to guide reliable implementation. Each fiscal year, efforts to meet the Casio Green Targets 2024 will be defined consistently with ISO 14001 activities.
