As we work toward the goal of becoming carbon zero (reducing CO2 emissions to net zero) by 2040, and becoming carbon negative by 2050, besides aiming to reduce CO2 emissions in our own business activities, we also aim to contribute toward realizing the decarbonized society by helping to reduce emissions in society as a whole, and through carbon fixation to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
