Casio Environmental Vision 2050
In 2012, Casio established the Casio Environmental Vision 2050, a long-term environmental management policy with a target year of 2050.
At the same time, the company also formulated the Casio Environmental Declaration 2020, its medium-term action guideline, but this was discontinued when the medium- and long-term target for greenhouse gases was revised in 2017.
Casio’s determination to become a leading environmental company is demonstrated by its commitment to visionary global initiatives to help build a more sustainable world, driven by the Casio Environmental Vision 2050.
Casio Environmental Vision 2050
With a target year of 2050, the Casio Group will create and implement its own visionary initiatives to promote the sustainable use of energy and resources and facilitate the healthy coexistence of all living things, the planet's greatest assets.
Casio’s aim is to become a leading environmental company that contributes not only to a sound and sustainable global environment but also to the spiritual richness of people’s lives. Casio’s unique way of achieving this is by creating new value and lifestyle possibilities that give rise to markets and cultural phenomena never seen before.
To become a leading environmental company, Casio will apply its spirit of going from “0” to “1,” or creating “something” from “nothing,” to develop unique environmental initiatives and create products and services that make the most of its innovative ideas and leading technologies, focusing in particular on the following areas:
・Realizing a low-carbon society
・Building a recycling society
・Living in harmony with nature
In 2016, Casio started to integrate its environmental management system into a group-wide system. First, the three main sites at headquarters, the Hamura R&D Center, and the Hachioji R&D Center of Casio Computer Co., Ltd. were integrated under ISO 14001: 2015 certification. In addition, the company established committees to handle the three areas of environmental material goals and set up working groups underneath them. The system was changed to a materiality-based, top-down structure rather than the previous structure, which was based on individual departments and bottom-up. Casio will continue to manage environmental activities effectively as an entire Group using ISO 14001.
In the new system, there is a concern that variations will appear between departments in the level of involvement in and awareness of the environmental management system. This is why Casio has clarified the relationship between “committee activities” and “the core business of departments.” Casio will continue working to improve the environmental performance of the entire Group while remaining aware of issues related to implementing a Group-wide environmental management system.
