— Contributing “In Series” to a Sustainable Society —

TOKYO, May 16, 2022: Azbil Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange Code: 6845) announced it has established a new target in order to pursue specific initiatives for its “Essential Goals of azbil Group for SDGs”*1 and will strengthen those efforts.

In pursuit of achieving a sustainable society, the azbil Group has positioned the SDGs as important guideposts for management and established essential goals of the azbil Group for the SDGs, which are the four goals to be achieved by 2030 listed below (Environment and Energy; New Automation; Supply Chain and Social Responsibility; and Health and Well-Being Management and An Organization That Never Stops Learning) covering business and general corporate activities, including human resource development, that aim to create value unique to the azbil Group. To advance its contributions “in series” to the achievement of a sustainable society, the Group has been setting various specific targets.

As the first step towards creating and providing eco-friendly products and services, Azbil has established its newest target that states “Design all new products to meet the azbil Group's own sustainability standards.” This falls under the aforementioned goal of Environment and Energy, which endeavors to solve energy-related problems through cooperative creation for the purpose of contributing to the Earth’s environment and achieving a decarbonized society.

New target

Target for FY2030
Design all new products to meet the azbil Group's own sustainability standards*
* This design strives to create and provide products that contribute to solving global environmental issues (through decarbonization, resource circulation, and biodiversity).

Through these sustainability standards, contributions will be made to the realization of environmental-integrated management that comprehensively engages in business activities that tackle various environmental issues.
