Tokyo, Japan - February 17, 2022
Yokogawa Electric Corporation has been selected for inclusion in the Carbon Clean 200™ (Clean200), a list of 200 publicly traded companies worldwide that are leading the way among their global peers to a clean energy future. This is the first time that the company has been selected for this list.
The annual Clean200 was created in 2016 by Canadian research and media company Corporate Knights in collaboration with As You Sow, a leading U.S. shareholder advocacy non-profit, to be a useful guide for investors looking to identify companies leading the way to a clean-energy future, and to dispel the myth that clean investing results in lower returns.
The companies on the 2022 list were selected out of 8,480 global firms by utilizing the Corporate Knights Clean Revenue database, which tracks the percent of revenue companies earn from clean economy themes across a broad range of sectors. Yokogawa has identified renewable energy, water, pharmaceuticals and food, and the efficient use of energy and resources as priority areas in which the company contributes to sustainability. 88.16% of the company's sales in FY2020 were evaluated as being clean revenue.
Yokogawa has set its “Three goals” as a vision for society in the year 2050. The company will continue working to create a sustainable society through its business activities in keeping with its corporate philosophy and Yokogawa’s Purpose, which states: "Utilizing our ability to measure and connect, we fulfill our responsibilities for the future of our planet."
