Kyocera appointed “Supplier Engagement Leader” by CDP for the second time

Kyocera has been recognized for its endeavors to reducing greenhouse emissions throughout its entire value chain – this nomination once again validates  the continous sustainability efforts of the company.

Japan headquartered company Kyocera was acknowledged as a “Supplier Engagement Leader” for the second time in succession, based on the fifth anual survey of suppliers, conducted by international non-profit organization CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project). Kyocera was awarded due to the company´s initiative for reducing greenhouse emissions along its entire value chain.
The Japanese company first recieved this award in 2019, the fourth year after the establishment of CDP. By this time Kyocera determined the reduction of greenhouse emissions, including internal emissions and emissions within the supply chain, as an environmental objective. More precisely a diminuation of 30 percent until March 31, 2030, based on the level of  2013.
The 2020 list includes approximatly 80 Japanese companies, with Kyocera being one of the top-performers. The global disclosure system of CDP uncovers companies’ environmental imapcts with focus on climate change, sustainability of forestry, and water safety.

Transparent and environmentally conscious

Kyocera was particularly recognized for its leading qualities in environmental transparency and performance among more than 5,800 companies assessed in 2020 and therfore received an “A” grade. This led to Kyocera being included in the CDP “A-List 2020” of future-oriented companies.
Moreover, last year Kyocera was acknowledged for its environmental awareness by Wall Street Journal. The international magazine included Kyocera in its list “The 100 most sustainably managed companies in the world” in 2020. For this ranking analysts assessed sustainability metrics of more than 5,500 publicly traded companies, with Kyocera being among the top two percent.
