4. Contributing to the Global Environment
with the Power of Technology- Realizing a Carbon-neutral, Recycling-oriented Society -
Contribute to mitigating climate change, promoting a circular economy and
the adoption of renewable energy by utilizing cutting-edge technologies to pass
on a sustainable global environment to the next generation.
Sustainable development goals
SDGs value creation
(1)Contribute to the mitigation of climate change through
technology and business
As countermeasures to mitigate climate change, we promote the use of renewable energy and energy conservation through ICT to reduce CO
- More efficient use of electricity
- Transition to energy-efficient equipment
- Leveraging IoT for more efficient use of electricity in consideration of the environment
- Shifting electricity for cellular base stations to renewable energy*1
|Target vision||Encouragement of renewable energy and ICT-driven energy efficiency|
|1||KPI||Base station renewable energy ratio
50% or greater (FY2021)
70% or greater (FY2022)
|Base station renewable energy ratio
70% or greater (FY2022)
|Result||Estimated to achieve more than 50% renewable energy ratio at base stations
|2||KPI||Work on new businesses that help promote CO
||Contribution to the reduction of CO
Spread and expand electricity-saving services for households through electricity applications, etc.Update
|Result||Promoted and expanded electricity-saving services for households through electricity apps||-|
|3||KPI||Achievement of carbon neutrality (FY2030)*2Update|
We will primarily achieve this goal by using renewable energy sources that have been certified as non-dependent on fossil fuels.
SoftBank Corp.'s Scope 1 (direct greenhouse gas emissions by the company itself) and Scope 2 (indirect emissions from the use of electricity, heat, and steam supplied by other companies) are included in the total.
In addition to the use of conventional renewable energy sources, studies are conducted to contribute to the expansion of new renewable energy sources.
(2)Promote a recycling-based society (circular economy)
Promote the controlled use of resources, in addition to recycling and reuse.
- Mobile phone recycling, the introduction of carry bags using alternative materials to paper and plastic, and the reduction of paper usage through the use of smart devices
- Utilize waste water resources and reduce waste products
|Target vision||Promotion of resource conservation, reuse / recycling, and biodiversity (natural capital) conservation through the use of technology|
|1||KPI||Number of used mobile phones collected for reuse / recycling: 10 million (total for FY2020-2025)|
|Result||5.13 million (FY2020-FY2021)||-|
|2||KPI||Percentage of decommissioned base stations going to landfill: 1% or less (annually)|
|3||KPI||-||Promote initiatives related to biodiversity (natural capital) conservationNew|
(3)Realize a prosperous society through the spread of
We will promote the spread of renewable energy businesses and services to realize an environmentally-friendly society
- Spread the use of renewable energy (including feed-in tariffs) by providing the Shizen Denki electric power service
|Target vision||Expansion of renewable energy services|
|1||KPI||Renewable Energy Promotion: Expansion of renewable energy services|
Service that uses 100% renewable energy source through the mechanism of non-fossil certificates
