Sustainability

Environment

To support the longevity of our planet, Recruit Group specifically considers climate change as important among various environmental issues.

Commitment to Our Planet

We pledge to become carbon neutral through our business activities by 2021 and our entire value chain by 2030*²

To support the longevity of our planet, we are committed to protecting the health of our environment. In an effort to serve as a responsible corporate citizen, we will focus on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to address climate change.

How to achieve

We will switch to using renewable electricity in our offices, provide ongoing support to full-time and temporary staff working from home, and use sustainable data centers to reduce GHG emissions. To become carbon neutral through our entire value chain by 2030, we will explore even more initiatives.

  • *1On this webpage, the number of years stated are reflective of the number of Recruit Holdings' fiscal years which begin on April 1 each year and end March 31 of the following year. All figures displayed here are approximate numbers.
  • *2GHG emissions through business activities are the sum of direct emissions from the use of fuels in the owned or controlled sources ("Scope 1") and indirect emissions from the use of purchased electricity, heat, or steam in the owned or controlled sources ("Scope 2"). GHG emissions through the value chain are indirect emissions other than Scope 1 and 2, occurring in the value chain ("Scope 3"). The entire value chain represents the total of Scope 1, 2 and 3. Carbon neutrality includes reducing GHG emissions as well as offsetting residual emissions.

Climate Action

In order to protect the health and the wellness of our planet, we aim to achieve carbon neutrality from our business operation across the group by the end of 2021 and achieve the same for our business operation and the entire value chain by 2030*²
