Environment Carbon offsetting

Carbon offsetting

Ceres has been working since 2021 towards the achievement of a decarbonized society. To this end, we have launched our Moppy point site, as well as purchased Green Power Certificates to offset 100% of the CO2 emissions generated by our electricity use (e.g., power used by our offices and servers used for web services) to become carbon neutral.

At the January 22, 2021 Board of Directors meeting, it was decided that 100% of CO2 emissions from the electricity used in group businesses would be offset and made carbon neutral starting from fiscal year 2021. In addition, the company became a member of the Japan Climate Leaders' Partnership (JCLP) and Renewable Energy Pledge 100 RE Action.

In acknowledgement of this, JCLP was founded in 2009 as a corporate group unique to Japan. As of April 2, 2024, there are 249 member companies representing Japan from an extensive range of industries.The combined sales of JCLP member companies reached about 169 trillion yen and their total electricity consumption is about 79 TWh.
Working towards the achievement of a decarbonized society, JCLP also facilitates partnerships with local governments and overseas organizations. This includes comprehensive partnership agreements with the city of Yokohama and The Climate Group, an international nonprofit organization, where it acts as a local partner and liaison for the popularization of RE100, EV100, and EP100 initiatives.
