Main initiatives and results in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017
The Nikon Group promotes activities aimed at helping communities develop sustainably on the basis of the Nikon Basic Environmental Management Policy so that a healthy environment can be passed down to future generations.
In April 2016, Nikon formulated the Nikon Long-term Environmental Vision, through which it aims to achieve three goals: to contribute to realizing a low-carbon society, a resource-circulating society, and a healthy and environmentally-safe society. To make steady progress towards these objectives, it set Nikon Medium-term Environmental Goals as targets extending to 2030. For example, as an initiative for combatting climate change, Nikon is targeting a 26% reduction of the Group's CO2 emissions across the entire supply chain over the fiscal 2013 level by 2030. To achieve the goals, the company established its Nikon Three-year Environmental Plan effective from the current fiscal year, and is working to achieve the specific targets of its one-year Environmental Action Plan.
