In June 2022, the Company expressed its support for the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and at the same time joined the TCFD Consortium. The Company has now started disclosing information based on the TCFD recommendations.
The Company will continue to enhance the quality and quantity of the climate change-related information disclosure in line with the TCFD recommendations and to incorporate specific measures to address the climate-related risks and opportunities in its mid-term management plan, “Evolution 2026,” as part of its efforts to realize a sustainable society, including carbon neutrality.

[Reference] About TCFD (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure)
The TCFD is a task force established in 2015 by the Financial Stability Board (FSB), an international organization seeking to stabilize the financial system, in response to a request regarding climate-related information disclosure from the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors’ Meeting. It published its final report in 2017, recommending that companies and others assess the financial impact of risks and opportunities posed by climate change on their operations and disclose their “Governance,” “Strategy,” “Risk Management,” and “Metrics and Targets.”
The June 2021 revision of the Corporate Governance Code suggests that disclosure based on the TCFD or an equivalent framework is a particularly important point for prime market listed companies.
