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.
■ About the Japan Climate Leaders' Partnership (JCLP)
The achievement of a decarbonized society requires the
business sector to have a sound sense of urgency and to start taking proactive actions.
In acknowledgement of this, JCLP was founded in 2009 as a corporate group unique to
Japan. As of March 13, 2023, there are 230 member companies representing Japan from an
extensive range of industries.The combined sales of JCLP member companies reached about
130 trillion yen and their total electricity consumption is about 66 TWh.
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.
