Roadmap for Achieving Net Zero Carbon by 2050

Cosmo Energy Group's Sustainable Management

The Cosmo Energy Group Management Vision, "In striving for harmony and symbiosis between our planet, man and society, we aim for sustainable growth towards a future of limitless possibilities," incorporating our commitment and passion toward the sustainable growth of our Group and society. 
Harmony and Symbiosis and Creating Future Values, which are included in the Cosmo Energy Group Management Vision constitute the Basic Concept of Sustainability and show our determination to promote sustainability in our management. 
To strengthen our sustainable management initiatives further, we have identified the ten most important material issues toward what we should be like in 2050. 

Under the Seventh Consolidated Medium-Term Management Plan, we are working towards integrating financial and non-financial initiatives based on material issues, and are undertaking efforts toward this goal based on established KPIs. Regarding climate change countermeasures, one of the most important material issues, we unveiled the 2050 Carbon Net Zero Declaration, and in May 2022, we released a roadmap to achieve this end. Going forward, we will continue to promote sustainable management through the Group’s business activities, aiming to sustainably enhance enterprise value and solve societal challenges. 

Internal Control System

In FY2021, we established the Sustainability Strategy Committee, aiming to make decisions integrating financial and non-financial goals. Thus, we have developed a framework for implementing sustainability transformation (SX).

Sustainability Strategy Committee

Aiming to realize our Group Management Vision, the Company has established a Sustainability Strategy Committee and a Sustainability Committee as organizational structures to oversee sustainability-related activities, including internal controls. The Sustainability Strategy Committee is composed of top executive officers, including the Group CEO, as well as the CEOs and executive officers in charge of sustainability at the three core operating companies. Directors who are members of the Audit and Supervisory Committee attend as observers.

The Sustainability Strategy Committee promotes more focused and proactive initiatives by discussing policies for sustainability activities, including safety, risk management, human rights, and the environment, monitoring and evaluating performance, and reporting important matters to the Board of Directors.

In FY2022, the Sustainability Strategy Committee met five times and discussed 14 agenda items, of which nine were reported to the Board of Directors for deliberation and further discussion.

Committees have also been established at each core operating company and semicore operating company according to their respective functions. These committees work with the Company’s Sustainability Strategy Committee to ensure that all Group companies are on the same page.
