The interlayer film business has started to implement decarbonization initiatives for glass manufacturers—its main customers—and Europe, where there is strong social demand for decarbonization. The business aims to achieve green energy procurement globally.
The film production plant of SEKISUI S-LEC B.V. took the lead in this initiative, achieving the shift to renewable energy sources for 100% of purchased electricity in April 2020. With the shift to renewable energy sources for purchased electricity this time at the raw material plant in the Netherlands, SEKISUI S-LEC B.V. has achieved the shift to renewable energy sources for 100% of purchased electricity at all its plants.
By contributing to the resolution of climate change issues, the SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group will convert major risks into opportunities, aim to realize a sustainable society, and grow as a sustainable company. To build a decarbonized society, the Group intends to shift to renewable energy sources for 100% of purchased electricity by fiscal 2030, and aims to achieve zero greenhouse gas emission by fiscal 2050 for all energy used in business activities, including that produced by cogeneration systems.
