Information Disclosure based on TCFD Framework

Our Group endeavors to identify the diverse risks and opportunities stemming from environmental issues. Advancing climate change is expected to exacerbate natural disasters, including raising temperatures and sea levels, and causing serious typhoons and floods. Such events may affect the business of our Group in different ways. Meanwhile, if we can address these issues appropriately, we believe that we can strengthen our competitiveness and gain new business opportunities. Based on this belief, we have categorized the risks and opportunities related to climate change. Having endorsed the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) in April 2022, our Group proceeds with the disclosure of information on the risks and opportunities related to climate change and their analyses.

Reducing Environmental Impact across Supply Chain

Our Group established the “OLC Group Procurement Policy” that includes environmental issues to be considered throughout our entire supply chain in May 2022.  Also, our Group has the “OLC Group Vendors Code of Conduct” in place for our suppliers. To encourage our suppliers to advance their measures for environmental protection, the Code of Conduct prescribes our efforts to reduce all kinds of environmental impact, as well as to comply with laws, regulations, and other standards, for the purpose of preventing global warming and environmental contamination as well as giving consideration to biodiversity.

Management Structures

The OLC Group Environmental Management Structure

Our Group has a committee in place to promote environmental initiatives

Structures to Promote Environmental Action

Recognizing environmental issues including climate change as an important managerial challenge to be addressed, our Board of Directors resolved to set “Measures to address climate change and natural disasters” and “Recycling-oriented society” as our ESG materiality, and monitor the progress made in our related plans.

Our Group has established an Environmental Action Committee chaired by the Supervisor of the Corporate Strategy Planning Division (Executive Director and Executive Officer). The committee is responsible for planning and setting targets for the Company’s environmental activities including against climate change and is comprised of three subcommittees*. These subcommittees conduct fact-finding surveys, devise strategies for addressing environmental issues, and implement initiatives to reduce environmental impact. 
Since FY 2010, the Chairperson of the Environmental Action Committee has been appointed to supervise our energy management pursuant to the Amended Act on the Rational Use of Energy with the goal of systematically performing the proactive conservation of energy. Through the Environmental Action Committee, targets and plans regarding environment actions are reported to the Board of Directors annually as well as when significant environmental issues come up. Approved by the Board of Directors, "Climate change and natural disasters" and "Circular economy" will be our focus area on environmental actions until 2030. We will establish plans of mitigations and adoptions to the climate change, while incorporating it to the business strategy.


*Subcommittee on Climate Change, Subcommittee on Chemicals Management, and Subcommittee on Resource Recycling (as of October 2022).

Internal Environmental Audits

Our Group has been conducting internal environmental audit with specific topics each year.
In previous fiscal years, the Environmental Action Committee secretariat audited related departments and Group companies. In FY 2022, the Internal Auditing Department took charge and audited the Environmental Action Committee secretariat and the Subcommittee on Climate Change to discern whether the management cycle for addressing the sustainability issue of “climate change,” which is one of the most critical risks (strategic risks) identified by the OLC Group, was functioning properly and effectively(all organizations of the OLC Group including consolidated subsidiaries are subject to the audit).

Actions and Performances

Compliance with Environmental Laws and Regulations

Our Group ensures that information on environmental laws and regulations is shared across our Group by using a checklist and keeps track of legal revisions with support from relevant external service providers.
In FY 2022, no serious accidents concerning the environment occurred nor were we required to pay any environmental penalties.

Environmental Education for Employees

Our Group has been publishing an environmental series on the intranet and in our in-house newsletter to raise employee awareness of the importance of environmental conservation.
We also held an in-house Environmental EXPO in an effort to showcase and gain wider recognition of our Group’s environmental activities among our employees.
In addition, the Subcommittee on Climate Change called for ideas on saving energy at the workplace, encouraging all employees to take spontaneous actions to save power.
We thus take advantage of different opportunities to offer environmental education through various activities.
