Our Approach

Conscious of global trends such as the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the enactment of the Paris Agreement, we too are looking to identify environmental problems and have taken a long-term perspective to promote the implementation of environmental initiatives.

The azbil Group works to reduce the burden on the environment caused by our own business activities, and at the same time we utilize the technologies and know-how gleaned from those efforts. By harnessing measurement and control technology to help our customers to find solutions for their environmental challenges, we promote greater efforts to conserve the environment through our core businesses, thereby leading to the realization of sustainable society.

The azbil Group Environmental Committee is convened three times a year as a framework for promoting environmental policy under the eye of the Group’s executive officer in charge of the environmental load innovation, and the relevant offices at each Group company consider risks and opportunities while conducting planning, deliberation, and reviews.

In June 2020, the azbil Group announced its participation in the Japan Business Federation (Keidanren) Challenge Zero proposal aimed at promoting innovation that will contribute to achieve a decarbonized society.* The world has seen many changes in society with the spread of COVID-19, from new ways of living to new ways of working, so we are reviewing and examining how to respond to the changing conditions with measures to deal with energy consumption, solutions to society’s problems through products and services, and implementation of environmental conservation activities.

* Visit Keidanren’s Challenge Zero website for two examples of our efforts, our virtual power plant (VPP) business, which integrates and controls various energy resources using our automatic demand response system, and our effort to reduce global CO2 emissions through the development and spread of our RENKEI control technology.
