Initiatives

We participate in the following initiatives as part of our sustainability promotion efforts.

The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact
Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

The Nichirei Group positions climate change initiatives as one of its five material matters for the realization of the long-term management goals toward 2030. Through a detailed process based on the TCFD recommendations, we evaluated the business risks and opportunities posed by climate change and conducted scenario analyses from four perspectives: governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets.

In pursuing sustainable global business operations across a wide range of areas, from upstream to downstream food production, the Group recognizes the importance of measures for realizing a low-carbon society in consideration of the impact of climate change. In that regard, we have formulated long-term goals and measures for reducing CO2 emissions as part of our efforts to realize the low-carbon society that we considered in our climate change scenario analyses. To enhance the efficacy of our initiatives, we have endorsed the TCFD recommendations and participate in the TCFD Consortium.

NGO Caux Round Table Japan

For the Nichirei Group, which is engaged in the food business, building a sustainable supply chain is vitally important, both in terms of solving social issues and pursuing business growth. Recently, human rights problems in supply chains have been recognized as a serious issue, and companies are increasingly being called on to respond and practice risk management. We are also facing an urgent need to respond to requests from international ESG rating agencies and institutional investors for disclosure of specific actions, including identification of human rights risks in our supply chain and implementation of human rights due diligence.

To build a sustainable supply chain, we have obtained the cooperation of the NGO Caux Round Table Japan (CRT Japan), which has an extensive domestic and international network and a long track record in the area of business and human rights. The comprehensive advice we receive enables us to respond appropriately and create strong internal frameworks in accordance with global rules.
