Mizuno understands that the conservation of the global environment is one of the most important issues shared by humankind, and thus we are committed to helping to create a sustainable society. Since the establishment of the Crew 21 Committee* in September 1991, we have been making efforts to effectively use resources and to reduce environmental impacts, including CO2 emissions and environmental pollutants.
Mizuno has established the Mizuno Green Grade, its own criteria for the certification of eco-friendly products, in an effort to make all of its products eco-friendly. The company-wide promotion of eco-friendliness throughout the entire product lifecycle, from material procurement to production, transportation, sales, use, and finally disposal helps to conserve resources, preserve the environment, and reduce the environmental load.
Mizuno’s Long-Term Environmental Target
As a long-term environmental target, the Mizuno Group and its overseas business sites have set a 30% reduction in CO2 emissions from energy consumption by 2030 compared to 2018, and are promoting activities to achieve a low-carbon society. Following discussions at the IPCC's Special Report on 1.5°C in 2018, the UN Climate Action Summit in 2019 and COP25, the criteria for the Science Based Targets (SBT) Initiative were revised, and the base year was changed from FY2013 to FY2018.
