Decarbonization Decarbonization

Realizing decarbonization

Archieve carbon-neutral as a whole group by 2050

The Kansai Paint Group demonstrates five commitments and strives to achieve carbon neutrality.

  • ■Based on the long-term vision, change the energy type to use from decarbonization point of view.
    (de-fossil fuel, renewable energy, next generation energy, etc.)
  • ■Drastically reduce the energy amount to use by optimizing the business activities from a medium-term perspective.
  • ■Reduce CO2 emission through the whole product lifecycle, with our customers and suppliers.
  • ■Transform the way to use energy, at the capital investment opportunities.
  • ■With above actions, aim the carbon-neutral by 2050.

Toward the realization of carbon neutrality by 2050

Contribution to decarbonization in the product field

  • ・Contribute to the decarbonization of customers and users
    • ・Contribute to the reduction of energy use at the customers' paint application stage
    • ・Propose customers to improve the productivity through the use of paints
    • ・Provide decarbonization solutions through technologies and products other than paints
  • ・Contribute to the decarbonization of society
    • ・Contribute to the change of society as a whole through effort in the field of paint

Carbon decarbonization within the Kansai Paint Group (production, sales, and development activities)

1. Change the kinds of energy
(De-fossil fuels, New energy utilization)
2. Significantly reduce
the energy consumption
(Optimization all over the supply chain)
(Innovation through investment in facilities)

2050

carbon neutrality

Efforts for realizing decarbonization

The Kansai Paint Group contributes to the realization of carbon neutrality from three viewpoints.

With our customers

  • ・Contribute to the reduction of energy use at the customers' paint application stage
  • ・Disseminate peripheral technologies necessary for it (e.g. digital technology)
  • ・Propose customers to improve the productivity through the use of paints
  • ・Provide our products for customers in areas where we have not been able to reach
  • ・Provide decarbonization solutions through technologies and products other than paints
  • ・Significantly reduce CO2 emissions in the product lifecycle Society

Society

  • ・Contribute to the net zero energy building (ZEB) and housing (ZEH) with paint
  • ・Contribute to the electrification of the entire society based on green electricity, and the introduction of next generation energy through paints
  • ・Contribute to the decarbonization policy in local areas by paints
  • ・Contribute to the spread of biomass energy and next generation energy through paints
  • ・Develop the optimal paint to enable the transformation toward decarbonization of cars
  • ・Develop the optimal paint that fits the overall transformation of the transportation system
  • ・Develop the products and technology that actively contribute to decarbonization
  • ・Expand the business in the decarbonization domain
  • ・Form alliances with companies with related technologies, or merge with or acquire such companies.

Our company

Change the kinds of energy for production and distribution

  • ・Stop using fossil fuels
  • ・Promote electrification in line with the introduction of green electricity
  • ・Switch to renewable energy and next generation energy

Significantly reduce the energy consumption

  • ・Reduce energy use in ways that differ from mere energy conservation and invest in decarbonization
  • ・Avoid cost increases due to carbon pricing
  • ・Reduce lifecycle CO2 through optimization of logistics
  • ・Reduce energy use in cooperation with suppliers

Foster an internal environment and establish internal systems which facilitate to promote decarbonization

  • ・Promote investment in facilities in consideration of decarbonization in a long term36
  • ・Avoid cost increases due to carbon pricing
  • ・ Avoid undue movement (employee movement, material transport)

Procure decarbonized and low carbon energy

  • ・Procure decarbonized energy on independent contracts (including those with overseas suppliers)
  • ・Procure green electricity
