In 2012, Casio established the Casio Environmental Vision 2050, a long-term environmental management policy that looks ahead to the year 2050, and launched a range of initiatives. In 2021, Casio undertook a complete review of the policy to ensure that it does not fall behind the drastic and rapid changes surrounding the environment, and restructured 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, Casio Green Targets 2024 includes target and KPI for 3 years to be set according to the functions of each organization based on the long-term goals of key environmental issues, and will be promoted in a clear positioning.
