December 27, 2021
Kubota Corporation (HeadOffice: Naniwa-ku Osaka Japan; President and Representative Director Yuichi Kitao; hereinafter referred to as “Kubota”) has renewed their “Eco-First Commitment”. It was re-certified by the Japan’s Ministry of the Environment as an “Eco-First Company”. We will continue to work towards achieving our new targets as an environmentally-advanced company.
Kubota Group aspires to be a corporate company that contributes to society’s development and conserves the environment. We place great importance on environmental conservation and will continue to make efforts to do so.
Kubota was certified as an Eco-First Company in 2010 and was subsequently recertified in 2014, 2017 and 2017. We pledged to work towards achieving the Medium-Term Environmental Conservation Goals for 2020 and the Long Term Targets 2030 in 2017.
As we met the Medium Term Environmental Conservation Targets (2020) out of the commitments made in 2017, we reported on our activities, and made new commitments based the Medium Term Environmental Conservation Targets (2025) and the Long-Term Targets (3030). We were subsequently recertified as an “EcoFirst Company” by Japan’s Minister for the Environment.
The renewed commitment is focused on efforts to create a decarbonized society. It aims to achieve net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050 across the value chain.
The “Eco-First” Commitment is a commitment made by a company to Japan’s Minister for the Environment regarding its own environmental conservation initiatives. This includes measures against climate change and waste recycling. If a company’s commitment can be deemed to be advanced in the sector, it is designated as an “Eco First Company.” It was established by the Japan Ministry of the Environment in 2008 to encourage corporate environmental initiatives.
