(1)Contribution to climate change policy/measures 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
- Switch electricity used in business activities, including by base stations, to electricity from renewable energy*1
- Utilize AI, IoT and other technologies to improve power use efficiency (develop next-generation batteries, etc.)
- Utilize IoT to improve power use efficiency and promote environmental awareness
- Implement initiatives aimed at net zero emissions (Scope 1, 2 and 3) group-wide
|Target vision||Encouragement of renewable energy and ICT-driven energy efficiency|
|1||KPI||Ratio of renewable energy for base stations
70% or more (FY2022)
|Result||Ratio of renewable energy for base stations: 72.1%|
|2||KPI||Carbon neutrality (FY2030)*2|
|3||KPI||Contribution to CO
Spread and expand household energy-saving services through electricity management apps, etc.
|Result||Households using the service: Approximately 1.2 million||-|
Including the use of non-fossil certificates designated as renewable energy
Based on SoftBank Corp.'s total emissions in 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).
Considering ways to contribute to the expansion of new renewable energy sources, in addition to the use of conventional renewable energy sources.
Total of the company and Wireless City Planning, Inc.
New procurement from renewable energy generation (wind, solar, etc.)
(2)Promote a recycling-based society (circular economy)
Promote the controlled use of resources, in addition to recycling and reuse.
- Promote paperless operations through the spread and use of IoT
- Promote recycling (mobile phone recycling, etc.)
- Reduce water resource use and waste in business activities
- Implement initiatives to conserve biodiversity
|Target vision||Promotion of resource conservation, reuse / recycling, and biodiversity (natural capital) conservation through the use of technology|
|1||KPI||Mobile phones collected for reuse or recycling: 10 million (FY2020-2025)||Mobile phones collected for reuse or recycling: 12 million (FY2020-2025)Update|
|Result||7.3 million phones (FY2020-FY2022)||-|
|2||KPI||Percentage of decommissioned base stations going to landfill: 1% or less (annually)|
|3||KPI||Promote initiatives related to conserving biodiversity (natural capital)||Promote initiatives related to conserving biodiversity / natural capital
Reducing the impact of land development on biodiversityUpdate
|Result||Coral seedlings planted by “Future and Coral Project”: 136||-|
(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
- Promote the use of clean energy, mainly through SoftBank Denki
|Target vision||Expansion of renewable energy services|
|1||KPI||Renewable energy power provision: Expand provision of renewable energy power plans|
Service that provides 100% renewable energy source through the use of non-fossil certificates
