In the “CDP Japan 500 Climate Change Report 2014” published by CDP*1 , Komatsu was one of the companies awarded the highest rank of A for greenhouse gas reduction performance. We were also awarded a high score of 99 for information disclosure. As a result, Komatsu was selected for two consecutive years by both the CPLI*2 (Climate Performance Leadership Index) and the CDLI*3 (Climate Disclosure Leadership Index) of the 2014 CDP Japan 500. We also made it on to the “The A List, ” which lists all global companies that received the A ranking.

Komatsu believes that environmental activities are a top priority issue for a company to fulfill social responsibility and foster sustainable development. Therefore, activities to reduce environmental impact is being actively promoted across all aspects of business activities.

For example, ICT construction machinery, hybrid hydraulic excavators, activities to halve power consumption, and biodiversity conservation activities are being promoted. The result of these climate change initiatives contributed to the high evaluation of our activities.

Preservation of the global environment is essential for companies to achieve sustainable growth, and Komatsu will continue to advance its environmental activities more than ever.
