CIO Experience: SDG Efforts Accelerated by DX
Chika Furukawa, General Manager, Sustainability promotion department, Corporate administration headquarters, Yokogawa Electric Corporation
Yokogawa Electric is contributing to SDGs through its business activities, having set out the Three goals as its long-term vision for sustainability, looking to 2050. In recent years, movements around sustainability have accelerated worldwide, including governments' pledges for carbon neutrality, TCFD (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures), and the EU taxonomy, and businesses are under pressure to respond to these new trends. They must manage a wider range of data, as they are responsible for ensuring that non-financial data is also comprehensive and adequate. In addition, they need to measure, visualize, and maximize their contribution to SDGs. With that backdrop, I'll introduce our efforts at Yokogawa and my sense of the issues going forward.
