OMRON Becomes Japan's First Manufacturing Company to Join EP100

OMRON has become a member of The Climate Group's "EP100" initiatives. OMRON is the first Japanese company in the manufacturing industry and the fourth Japanese company in general to join the EP100 initiative, which brings together over 120 energy smart businesses committed to measuring and reporting on energy efficiency improvements.

With OMRON’s Industrial Automation and Healthcare businesses joining the Initiative, the company commits to doubling its energy productivity. The goal is to double the amount of sales per Gigawatt Hour (Gwh) compared to 2016 levels by 2040. ‘Energy productivity’ is an indicator that aims to achieve reduction in energy consumption and simultaneously boost productivity and quality.

Carbon Zero in 2050

In its long-term vision Shaping the Future 2030, launched in April 2022, OMRON expressed its commitment to solving social issues through its business. By transforming the organization in the years to come, OMRON aims to contribute to social needs such as achieving carbon neutrality. OMRON is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and bringing about a decarbonized society through energy conservation and cleaner power consumption.

Unique energy productivity initiatives

For more than a decade, OMRON’s Industrial Automation Business has balanced quality and productivity improvements with global environmental conservation at its Ayabe Plant (Ayabe City, Kyoto Prefecture in Japan) and other in-house factories. Providing the technologies and know-how cultivated through these efforts allows OMRON to lead the manufacturing industry in energy productivity improvement. These products and services are not only used at OMRON’s own production sites but also their customer’s manufacturing sites.

Toby Morgan, Senior Manager of Built Environment at Climate Group, commented: “We are delighted that OMRON has signed up to EP100, joining over 120 other members who are committed to doing more with less. By committing to improving their energy efficiency, OMRON is showing ambition and leadership in Japan, demonstrating how other corporates in this region can lower emissions, reduce costs and accelerate the transition to a climate-resilient economy.”

Yoshihito Yamada, President and CEO, OMRON Corporation, also commented on joining the EP100. “In OMRON’s long term vision for the next 10 years, ‘Shaping the Future 2030’, we identified ‘Contributing to Achievement of Carbon Neutrality’ as one of the social issues to be addressed through our business activities. OMRON is serious about its commitment to the social issue of climate change and joining the EP100 is another important step to realize our ambition of carbon neutrality.”

Yamada continued: “We want to promote carbon neutrality throughout our entire value-chain, by empowering our customers to curb their emissions using our initiatives and solutions. Climate consciousness is not only a part of our responsibility to our planet, but also a key differentiator to ensure we run a future proof business.”
