Environmental Vision 2050: Reduction of CO2 Emissions


Brother Group
Environmental Vision 2050



The vision aims to support the Paris Agreement and contribute toward creating a carbon-free society with zero greenhouse gas emissions.

Reduction of CO2 Emissions


By 2050, the Brother Group will actively reduce CO2 emissions from the entire value chain in all business operations and contribute to creating a carbon-free society that the global community aims to achieve.

Mid-term target for FY2030*

[Scope 1 and 2]
Achieve 30% reduction from the FY2015 level


[Scope 3] Categories 1, C11 and C12
Achieve 30% reduction from the FY2015 level


Through reducing the use of solvents containing greenhouse gases which has been undertaken since FY2018, we were able to significantly reduce Scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions. The FY2030 mid-term target for Scope 1 and 2 were achieved 10 years in advance. Going forward, we will revise the target upward with FY2021 as a gauge and take on the challenge of achieving this new target. Regarding Scope 3, we continue to work on improving the energy-saving performance of products, and achieved a significant reduction of 15.8% compared to FY2015. We will continue to take on challenges with procurement, development, manufacturing, logistics, sales, and service working as one.

Scope 1, 2, and 3

Scope 1, 2, and 3

These are components making up greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the supply chain. Dividing into three categories minimizes overlapping calculations and allows specific emissions to be identified.

  • Scope 1: Direct GHG emissions by business operators
  • Scope 2: Indirect GHG emissions resulting from use of electricity, heat, and steam supplied by other entities
  • Scope 3: Indirect GHG emissions other than Scope 1 and 2 (emissions by other entities related to the activities of business operators)
  • The mid-term target for FY2030 has been recognized as a target based on scientific evidence by the Science Based Targets (SBT) initiative, an international initiative established to help achieve greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.

Energy-saving performance of Brother's products with customers and the environment in mind

HL-L5000D's power consumption per week is 1.764 kWh/week. This is 16% lower than the previous model, and a 26% reduction from the model before the last.
Brother continues to strive untiringly as a company delivering better products that are friendly to the environment.

Thinking about the environment from the perspective of electrical energy—toward a future with widespread use of hydrogen

Toward the development of fuel cell systems, Brother has undertaken many years of fuel cell research while pursuing the potential of hydrogen.
There are still many issues in further widening the use of hydrogen. However, the development of this technology was a steady step into the future for Brother.
