Environment

The Group will contribute to promote the realization of a resilient and sustainable society by addressing environmental issues in the course of its business operations and proactively engage its stakeholders in forward looking dialogue. In order to hand down the precious global environment to future generations, the Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Group has set mid- to long-term goals of reducing GHG emissions to 40% compared to the fiscal year 2002 levels by 2020 and 70% by 2050.

Project for Community Contribution

Through the community contribution project, Sompo Japan Nipponkoa will strive to contribute to solving social issues in the areas of “Environment,” “Security, Health and Wellbeing,” and “Education and Life” by furthering collaboration with NGOs/NPOs.
The company donates project funds as customers sign up for the “web-based insurance clause” option for car insurance, or actually use recycled parts for vehicle repairs in case of an accident.

Reducing Environmental Impact throughout the Value Chain

The Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Group cooperates with various stakeholders, both upstream and downstream, to proactively work to reduce our environmental impact throughout our value chain. The Group integrated its environmental management systems, for which it has obtained the ISO 14001 international standard, to develop the largest-class CSR-Environmental Management System (CSR-EMS) ever developed by Japanese Financial Institutions.

Products and Services for Addressing Environmental Issues

The Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Group takes two approaches to the issue of climate change: “adaptation” for reducing risks associated with changes in the global environment; and “mitigation” by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In line with these concepts, the Group is endeavoring to research and develop products and services that help offer effective solutions to the global environmental issues.

Education and Research Projects for Environmental

Under the slogan “Fostering people who plant trees,” the Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Group collaborates with specialized NGOs/NPOs in offering environmental education programs aimed to help young people build environmental awareness and take action on their own initiative.
We are also continuing to host research projects together with specialists on studying contemporary social issues and providing solutions.
