Aiming to achieve zero carbon and zero emissions by 2050

ROHM’s ‘Environmental Vision 2050’ contributes to achieving a sustainable society by 2050.

In addition to pursuing zero carbon and zero emissions (zero CO2 emissions) based on the three themes of ‘climate change’, ‘resource recycling’, and ‘coexistence with nature’, ROHM will promote business activities in harmony with the natural cycle to protect biodiversity.

The ROHM Group Environmental Vision 2050

ROHM’s corporate objective is: ‘Quality is our top priority at all times’. Since our company’s foundation, we have been actively contributing to society and the progress of our culture through a consistent supply, under all circumstances, of high quality products in large volumes to the global market.

The role of semiconductors – ROHM’s main products – is becoming increasingly important to achieving a decarbonized society. In particular, improving the efficiency of motors and power supplies, which are said to account for the most of the world’s electricity consumption, has become our major mission.

Against this backdrop, our management vision for 2020 is: ‘Focus on power and analog products to solve social challenges by delivering greater energy savings and miniaturization in customer products.’ In order to further contribute to society, we will clarify the direction we should take while raising awareness among all group employees.

In addition to contributing through these products, it is important to reduce the environmental impact of business activities in general, including the production process. ROHM accomplishes this vision by working to establish an eco-friendly business structure by using 100% renewable energy at both its main domestic offices (Kyoto Station Building, Shin-Yokohama Station Building) and in the primary production process for SiC wafer manufacturing from this fiscal year.

ROHM is committed to continuing to promote technological innovation in power and analog products, which are key devices for improving efficiency, based on our corporate objectives and management vision. At the same time, we are actively involved in a variety of environmental conservation activities and environmental investments. The core aims: Slowing down the climate change, applying resource recycling and acting in coexistence with nature – in accordance with our newly established environmental vision to achieve a sustainable society.
