Houston, Texas – April 22, 2021
Recently, the world has experienced unforeseeable social and environmental changes such as the increase in extreme weather events and the COVID-19 pandemic. To adapt to such changes and realize a sustainable future, it is necessary to leap forward, well beyond past initiatives. It is our responsibility to pass on a healthy planet to future generations by resolving issues in the changing society and industries while transforming ourselves.
The last year has shown the kind of change humans are capable of when faced with a crisis. Collectively we can achieve the same level of change for a sustainable world. Sustainability is core to Yokogawa’s purpose and the decisions we make.
As a symbolic demonstration of our commitment to a healthy planet, Yokogawa planted six trees in honor of Earth Day this year.
Yokogawa will work to achieve net-zero emissions, ensure the well-being of all, and make a transition to a circular economy by 2050, thus making the world a better place for future generations.
We will undergo the necessary transformation to achieve these goals by becoming more adaptable and resilient, evolving our businesses to engage in sustainable value creation, and promoting co-innovation with our stakeholders.
We will continue to co-innovate with key stakeholders to develop technologies that can best manage resources to maintain sustainability, preserve the environment, optimize energy use, and minimize emissions of greenhouse gases such as CO2.
