Kyoto/London − The Japanese fine ceramics manufacturer Kyocera has once again been recognized for its environmental commitment by the international non-profit organization CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project). For the third time, the company has secured a place on the "A List 2023" for outstanding environmental transparency and achievements in the fight against climate change. The list, which includes fewer than 400 companies globally, recognizes Kyocera's ongoing efforts aiming to be a leader in environmental disclosure and to actively shape a sustainable future.

A direct consequence of this recognition is Kyocera's repeated classification as a "Supplier Engagement Leader" by CDP. For the fifth consecutive year, the award recognizes Kyocera's comprehensive strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout its supply chain. By aiming to reduce emissions by 46 percent by fiscal year 2031 compared to 2020 and increasing the use of renewable energy by twenty times by then (compared to 2014), Kyocera is committed to taking significant steps towards climate neutrality by 2051 and supporting the global effort to limit global warming to below 1.5 °C.

In addition, Kyocera has solidified its position as a leading force in innovation by being named to ClarivateTM‘s "Top 100 Global InnovatorsTM 2024" list for the eighth consecutive year. The company is known for its consistent innovation strategy, which extends beyond pure product creation to software and service applications - proof of its ability to adapt to changing market requirements.

Continuous innovation and sustainable growth as a guide to the future
Looking to the future, Kyocera is keeping its focus on driving innovation that both improves everyday life and increases efficiency. The awards confirm the company's commitment to taking its responsibility to the environment and society seriously and acting as a global pioneer. By constantly investing in research and development and bringing new, more environmentally friendly products and solutions to the market, the company not only sets standards in the industry, but also contributes to a better world.
For Kyocera, these awards are not only a confirmation of the path it has taken so far, but also an incentive to continue to be at the forefront of technological progress and environmental protection. For partners, customers and employees, this ensures that Kyocera will continue to play a leading role in creating a greener and more innovative world.

About CDP
The CDP was founded in 2000 as the "Carbon Disclosure Project" and encouraged companies to disclose their climate impact. Since then, CDP has expanded the scope of environmental disclosure to include risks and opportunities related to climate change, water security and deforestation. In 2023, over 24,000 organizations, including more than 23,000 companies representing two-thirds of global market capitalization and over 1,100 cities, states and regions, reported environmental information through CDP.
