Our Commitment to the Environment

In April 2021, the Tadano Group declared a target of achieving Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050 in order to contribute to a better global environment as a part of the society through our products, services, and business activities and through the behavior of our individual employees. By carrying out Tadano Green Solutions*, we will contribute to addressing climate change issues.
We also expressed support for the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) in April 2021.

Setting Long-Term Environmental Targets

We set long-term environmental targets for 2030 compared to the 2019 baseline of a 25% reduction in CO2 emissions from business activities, a 35% reduction in CO2 emissions from product use, and a 50% reduction in industrial waste emissions from business activities.

Long-Term Environmental Targets

Reduction of CO2 from Business Activities

The problem of climate change is a critical issue which cannot be resolved unless the entire world works together. The Tadano Group is also carrying out programs aimed at contributing to preserving the global environment and creating a sustainable society.
Our efforts include the installation of solar panels with a maximum output of 260kW at our Shido Plant and reorganization for greater efficiency in production and energy usage. In addition, at the Kozai Plant, constructed under the concept of "Next Generation Smart Plant: Harmonizing the Balance of People and Machinery, Connecting to the Next Generation of Smart Manufacturing," we adopted an energy management system, which can monitor energy consumption in real-time. We also installed solar panels with a maximum output of 1,182kW in 2021. At both plants, we are transporting products using barge vessels that feature high energy efficiency and low CO2 emissions, and are also actively implementing a modal shift. We are working to reduce environmental impacts at our other business sites in and outside of Japan as well, including by installing solar panels, conserving air conditioning and lighting power, and changing company-owned vehicles to EV and HV models. As a member of society, we will continue to accelerate the pace of our programs aimed at harmonization with the global environment and environmental improvements.

*2: Applicable to five production locations outside Japan. The scope of calculation will be expanded to other group companies outside Japan in the future.
*3: Intensity with the Tadano Group sales amount as the denominator is indicated (CO2: ton/sales: 100 million yen).

Reduction of CO2 from Product Use

Emissions generated during the operation of products account for a large portion of the CO2 emissions in the life cycle of construction machinery. Against such background, reducing CO2 emissions from our products has become a major issue for protecting the future of our planet.
The CREVO G5 Series of rough terrain cranes includes a new-generation engine designed to protect the environment, "automatic acceleration" that reduces wasteful engine speed, and "automatic pump stop" that stops the power-take-off pump when the crane is not being operated. In addition, the electric power unit "E-Pack" which allows the crane to be operated without starting the engine has been released in Japan as well as Europe. In this way, our cranes support efficient and environmentally friendly operation through reduction of CO2 emissions, improvement of fuel consumption, and low-noise operation. We are also actively working for the use of bio-diesel fuels such as hydrotreated vegetable oil, that have a smaller environmental impact than conventional diesel fuels.
In April 2022, we announced our plans to commercialize the world's first electric rough terrain crane. This electric rough terrain crane is able to travel and perform crane work using electrical power, and can reduce CO2 emissions from our products to zero. With support from a variety of industries and partners, we are aiming for product release in 2023.
We are also collecting and examining a wide range of data related to CO2 emissions from our products, and are working towards disclosing this information within FY 2022.
In addition, Tadano Group's products are expected to play a big role at construction sites for plants such as wind power stations, which are anticipated to increase due to Green Transformation in the future. To help our society, we will continue to develop products that contribute to environmental conservation. We are currently collecting and examining various types of data on CO2 emissions from products with the aim of disclosing them by the end of FY 2022.

Exhibit at WIND EXPO (Spring) 2022

In order to create points of contact with a wide range of stakeholders related to wind power generation, improve the company's presence in the wind energy industry, and acquire sales negotiations with new customers, we exhibited at the "10th WIND EXPO (Spring) 2022 International Wind Energy Expo" held from March 16 to 18, 2022 at Tokyo Big Sight, with more than 40,000 visitors.
We introduced products and services related to wind energy through videos and panel displays. We also provided detailed explanations of our products to visitors, and were able to build relationships with members of the wind energy industry.

Reduction of Industrial Waste from Business Activities

Working towards the creation of a recycling-oriented society, we are placing greater focus than ever before on reducing, reusing and recycling waste. Since acquiring ISO14001 environmental management system certification in 2008, the Tadano Group has been working to reduce industrial waste emissions from its business activities.
Approximately 90% of industrial waste in the Tadano Group is generated at production sites. We are working to reduce industrial waste by means including complete sorting of waste, recycling waste to create valuable materials, reducing the use of plastic in part packaging, and making effective use of surplus parts. In 2021, we began recycling waste oil to create a valuable material, allowing the waste oil that was previously incinerated to be reused as a resource.
