Carbon Neutral Initiatives


Mitutoyo Corporation will contribute to the realization of a decarbonized society toward carbon neutrality by 2050 to fulfill its corporate responsibility to address global climate change issues.

  • We will reduce our CO2 emissions (Scope 1, 2) by 50% from 2018 levels by 2030.We formally endorsed TCFD's recommendations in September 2022.
  • We expressed our support for the TCFD*recommendations in September 2022.
    TCFD(Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures)

Use of Renewable Energy

We are switching to 100% CO2-free hydroelectric power generation in the Utsunomiya Operations * and at our Kochi Plant.

*Utsunomiya Operations: Tool & Gage Plant, MC Plant, Kiyohara Plant

Introduction of “Tochigi-Furusato Electric Power Supply Service”
*However, Kiyohara Plant uses a different electric power company
Introduction of “Kochi Family Support Electricity”

Introduction of Energy-Saving and Production-Efficient Equipment

1. We introduced a solar power generation system for in-house consumption at our Miyazaki Plant.

2. We replaced the hot water boiler at our MC Plant in the Utsunomiya Operations with a module chiller to reduce our use of fuel oil A and achieve improved energy efficiency.


Disclosure Based on Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) Recommendations

Mitutoyo supports the TCFD recommendations and will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society by understanding and responding to future climate change-related events as business risks while, at the same time, identifying new opportunities and using them in its corporate strategy. We will analyze the risks and opportunities posed to our business by climate change and disclose information on governance, strategies, risk management, and indicators and targets based on the TCFD recommendations.


We recognize that climate change is an important issue in terms of “supporting and promoting harmony with the environment.” We are focusing on carbon neutrality promotion activities and have established a Working Group (WG) for the Promotion of Carbon Neutrality, which reports information on these activities to the Management Committee.
Important matters are reported to and shared with the Board of Directors.


Business risks and opportunities related to climate change are examined under two scenarios: 1. “Risks associated with the transition to a low-carbon economy” that would occur under the 2℃ scenario, and 2. “Risks associated with the physical impacts of climate change” that would occur if the 4℃ scenario is reached due to failure to reduce global CO2 emissions. After sorting the environment surrounding our business and considering what is important to us, we evaluate the potential impact on our business activities on the three-point scale of “large,” “medium,” or “small.”

Risk Management

The WG for the Promotion of Carbon Neutrality gathers information on climate change-related regulations and risks affecting our business, comprehensively evaluates and determines the degree of impact on our business, and considers risk countermeasures. The results of this consideration and policies to address these risks are reported to the Management Committee and Board of Directors as appropriate.

Indicators and Targets

We will reduce our CO2 emissions (Scope 1, 2) by 50% from 2018 levels by 2030.

ABS Coolant Proof Caliper
Digimatic Micrometer
ABS Digimatic Indicator
CNC Vision Measuring Machine

Responsible Mineral Procurement

In accordance with the “Mitutoyo Group Management Principles,” Mitutoyo has established a policy of “No use of minerals from conflict areas, which are sources of funds for armed groups,” and has been conducting activities to ensure responsible mineral procurement.

Tantalum, Tin, Tungsten, Gold

Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act

In 2010, Article 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) was laid down to raise concerns that mineral resources mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and neighboring countries may be the source of funds for armed groups that cause human rights violations and environmental destruction.

EU Conflict Minerals Regulation

The EU Conflict Minerals Regulation (REGULATION (EU) 2017/821) has been in force since January 2021.


In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, one of the world's leading producers of cobalt, concerns have been raised about poor working conditions and child labor.


Concerns have been raised about child labor and unsafe working conditions at mining sites in India, Madagascar, and other countries.

Demand for Supply Chains

In the unlikely event that the use of minerals that are involved in a conflict is discovered, Mitutoyo will work on due diligence by cooperating with suppliers and cooperating throughout the supply chain to change to mineral procurement from areas other than conflict areas.
