International initiatives and Advantest’s efforts on climate change

Name of institution Advantest’s efforts
TCFD
The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures
As part of our efforts to ensure information disclosure, we analyze the impacts of climate change on business continuity as well as management risks and opportunities associated with laws and regulations based on the temperature increase scenarios outlined by the IPCC.
SBTi
Science-based Targets Initiative
We formulate CO2 emissions reduction goals based on scientific insights and implement relevant measures as we work to achieve the goal of limiting temperature increases adopted in the Paris Agreement.
RE100
Renewable Energy 100%
We formulate and implement plans for transitioning to renewable energy sources for the electricity consumed in our business operations.
CDP
Carbon Disclosure Project
We proactively disclose information on initiatives for risks associated with climate change, such as the TCFD Recommendations, SBTi, and RE100.
IPCC
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
Declared target temperature increases and GHG emissions based on projections for scenarios on what the world will look like after a temperature increase of less than 2°C and 4°C, respectively.
  • Limit the temperature increase up to 2050 to below 1.5°C.
  • Reduce GHG emissions by 45% by 2030, and by 100% by 2050.
The Paris Agreement (COP21)
An international agreement adopted in 2015 to limit the global average increase in temperature to 1.5°C, a level that is far below 2°C, compared to pre-industrial levels.
