Carbon Management Solution

Yokogawa's “Carbon Management Solution” is to achieve the goals of carbon neutral, we will tackle issues and collaborate with our customers to limit GHG emission and shift to inexpensive, reliable, and sustainable energy using our original technology and know-how. Yokogawa contributes to the realization of a new recycling-oriented society that can coexist with the global environment.

Contribute to the realization of a new recycling-oriented society that can coexist with the global environment

It is the meaning of existence of Yokogawa to resolve issues related to the environment and society.
Based on the YokogawaPurpose of “Utilizing our ability to measure and connect, we fulfill our responsibilities for the future of our planet,” we will proactively work to achieve carbon neutral by cooperating across companies, and contribute to the realization of a new recycling-oriented society that can coexist with the global environment.

Carbon neutral is the urgent issue that the entire world should address together

Achieving carbon neutral, which was agreed as a universal goal in the Paris Agreement in 2015, is becoming a significant management challenge related to the very existence of the company, especially in industry.
Additionally, in activities that across companies and society, the knowledge and extensive experience in manufacturing industry which generate the large amount of GHG emissions, are indispensable to identify and improve the environmental impact.

“Do you have any issues such as…..”

“What is GHG protocol ?”
“Cannot disclose the data in response to our customers' queries”
“Can we manage GHG data by product lot / equipment unit?”
“Cannot set a daily target value for reducing GHG”
“Difficult to measure accurately due to manual operation
“Reporting has turned into objective and cannot implement a continuous PDCA”
“It is difficult to improve profitability along with GHG reduction because both conflicts each other”
“Visualization is done, but cannot implement CO2 reduction since do not know the specific way”
“No one to consult continuously”
“Not sure if each activity contributes to total optimization of our supply chain”
“To expand the operation globally in the future”

What is “Carbon Management”?

Carbon management is that organizations and institutions such as government, local government, and private companies understand the current situation of greenhouse emissions and keep continuous efforts for control and reduction. Especially in the manufacturing industry, it is to visualize the emissions of the entire supply chain from procurement of raw materials to disposal / recycling, and to accomplish overall optimization – carbon neutral through integrated reduction measures beyond individual enterprise.

Co-achieving zero carbon

Yokogawa is a partner who co-achieves your carbon neutral across the supply chain, utilizing the technology and best practice in “Measurement,” “Control”, and “Information.”



- Phase-in plan -

To achieve carbon neutral in 2050, we can conduct well-balanced implementation from both “fundamental reduction measures” and “operational reduction measures” while coordinating supply chain companies.
