The UN Climate Change Conference COP27 is taking place in Cairo. This year’s conference is the most important. There is no doubt that the climate problem is one of the most pressing environmental issues facing us today.
The world community must take immediate action to contain climate change and eliminate its negative consequences. Rising temperatures lead to more frequent and severe natural disasters, worsen global food security and stimulate global migration. It also poses a serious threat to national security. These effects will be most acute in developing countries where wealth is limited and sensitive sectors are concentrated.
Carbon neutrality is one of the most important technologies of our time.
this means that there is a balance between carbon emission and carbon removal from the atmosphere by carbon sinks. The removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and its subsequent storage is known as carbon sequestration. To achieve net zero emissions, all global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions must be offset by carbon sequestration.
some Japanese companies are struggling with these issues.
an example is Kyocera. Kyocera’s carbon neutral strategy is amazing.
Japan International Machine Tool Show (JIMTOF 2022), one of the world’s largest machine tool fairs, was held in Tokyo Big Sight in November 2022. kyocera presented some tools at JIMTOF.
JIMTOF is considered one of the world’s largest international technology exhibitions, showcasing machine tools and the machines that surround them.
Kyocera plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 46% by 2031. They have specific climate change scenarios. Kyocera Group established a management system, implemented risk management and set targets, performed scenario analysis, and discussed business strategies based on the results.
Kyocera’s sustainable practices are in line with the philosophy of its founder. He believed that people have no higher calling than to make the world a better place. The company’s efforts deserve recognition. It was named one of the 100 most sustainable companies in the world by The Wall Street Journal. It has also been included in CDP’s 2020 Best of List, which ranks companies based on their environmental performance.
At JIMTOF2022, Kyocera showcased a simulation tool to help customers calculate CO2 emissions from various cutting processes, as well as some tools to help customers reduce CO2 emissions from cutting processes.
People and businesses need to take action to reduce their carbon footprint. By limiting their consumption and investing in renewable energy, consumers can change our world for the better. We must also take steps to promote sustainable public transport and green modes of transport. In addition, we must practice sustainable waste management. By raising global awareness of climate change and taking action locally, each of us can make a difference.
