Toray Industries, Inc., announced today that it has concluded a green energy supply service agreement with Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. This accord covers electricity consumption at Toray’s head office in the Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower, which Mitsui Fudosan owns. That company’s service for tenants and joint business owners uses power greening, effectively delivering renewables-based electricity by employing non-fossil fuel energy certificates.
Through Mitsui Fudosan, Toray will tap the environmental value of wind power facilities that Electric Power Development Co., Ltd., operates. Toray’s head office will thus effectively use 100% renewable energy from April 2022. Based on a globally accepted standard, the projected annual greenhouse gas emissions reduction would be around 1,500 tons-CO2.
Toray aims to help realizing a carbon neutral world while becoming carbon-neutral in our business operations by 2050 in keeping with the Toray Group Sustainability Vision, which it formulated in 2018. The company will continue to step up initiatives to conserve electricity and other energy, accelerating internal carbon neutrality efforts by switching to fuels with lower greenhouse gas emissions and using more renewable energy sources.
