Sharp Eco Vision 2050
Sharp's Eco vision is based on its Basic Environmental Policy of "Creating an Environmentally Conscious Company with Sincerity and Creativity."
Long-term environmental vision
The international community has recognised the urgent need to address increasingly serious environmental sustainability problems, such as climate change, resource depletion, and plastic pollution. This desire to solve these social problems is accelerating global action, including efforts associated with achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), compliance with the Paris Agreement, and creating a circular economy.
In 2019, Sharp formulated Sharp Eco Vision 2050, a long-term environmental vision based on its Basic Environmental Policy of “Creating an Environmentally Conscious Company with Sincerity and Creativity", which was established in 1992.
Sharp is working toward creating a sustainable global environment by pursuing long-term goals set in three fields of action by 2050:
Climate change - Considering the 1.5°C target stipulated in the Paris Agreement, Sharp seeks to broaden and disseminate clean energy-related products and services and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its corporate activities, products and services.
Resource recycling - Sharp pursue a circular economy by recycling products and reducing waste generation from its business activities, thus reducing their environmental impact.
Safety and security - Sharp strictly manages chemical substances that may affect people’s health, the natural environment, and ecosystems, restricting their use to eliminate the risk of adverse effects.
Sharp is formulating medium-term environmental goals in each field that define specific activities and quantitative targets to accelerate its efforts towards achieving its long-term environmental vision.
