Accelerating efforts to become carbon neutral by 2050 ～The Kobe Plant R&D center has switched to “renewable energy electricity"～
Mitsuboshi Belting Ltd. (Head Office: Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture), as part of its efforts to become carbon neutral by 2050, has switched the electricity used at its Kobe Plant R&D center to the “Renewable Energy ECO Plan” (Head Office: Kita-ku, Osaka).
In November 2021, the Kobe Plant R&D center installed a solar power generation system on the rooftops of the third and fourth buildings, and in June 2022, we switched the fuel to “Carbon Neutral City Gas” ※1. The switch to renewable electricity will enable a 99% reduction in CO2 emissions at the Kobe Plant R&D center compared to the fiscal 2013 level.
Based on its basic philosophy of “To give attentive consideration to both humanity and nature," the Group will continue to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.
