TDK Corporation has been honored for its leadership in corporate sustainability by global environmental non-profit CDP, securing a place on its prestigious ‘A List’ for focusing on water security.
This selection marks the second time CDP named TDK an “A List Company,” in this category, signaling TDK’s continued prioritization of sustainability.
CDP is a global non-profit that drives companies and governments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard water resources and protect forests.
Over 13,000 companies with over 64% of global market capitalization disclosed environmental data through CDP in 2021, earning a high rating from the 12,000 companies that were evaluated.
TDK has established the TDK Environmental Charter, consisting of the Basic Principle on the Environment and the Basic Policy on the Environment, which makes up the entire group’s environment policy aimed at contributing to the sustainable development of society.
In line with the charter, TDK formulated the Environmental Vision and Environmental Action Plan as a fundamental framework for implementing specific environmental activities and initiatives. To bring more awareness to the importance of water as a natural resource, TDK set a target for reducing water use and is striving to control water-related risks.
In their new medium-term plan, “Value Creation 2023,” the pursuit of “social value,” which aims at contributing to the realization of a sustainable society by solving social issues, is set as an objective for all business activities. TDK will implement a cycle of increasing “commercial value” and “asset value” while furthering “social value.”
In addition to the A List ranking for water security, TDK also secured an “A-” ranking in the climate change category for the second year running reinforcing TDK’s focus on a sustainable future.
To realize 2CX (customer experience and consumer experience) by providing solutions that satisfy customers and consumers and experiences that exceed expectations, we aim to become an invaluable presence by aiding digital transformation (DX) and energy transformation (EX), two major social issues.
Based on this principle, the TDK Group will carry out environmental protection activities quickly and effectively with special consideration for climate change, biodiversity and the finitude of resources.
Through its innovative core technologies and solutions, the company will advance the development of a sustainable society, helping to ensure future generations around the world have access to clean and safe water supplies.
