Komatsu Ltd has been awarded a position on this year’s A List for climate by CDP, the non-profit global environmental disclosure platform. 

 The A-List is awarded to companies which are recognized as international leaders of managing climate change.

Every year, thousands of companies disclose data about their environmental impacts, risks and opportunities to CDP for independent assessment against its scoring methodology. In 2018, companies were requested to do so by over 650 investors with over US$87 trillion in assets, and/or 115 major purchasing organizations with US$3.3 trillion in purchasing power. Companies receive scores of A to D- for how effectively they are tackling climate change, deforestation and water security.

Komatsu has conventionally positioned environmental activities as one of top management priorities. In the mid-range management plan, which began in April 2016, Komatsu has also defined ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) as one of focused efforts and implemented aggressive activities. In particular, Komatsu has been promoting SMARTCONSTRUCTION designed to achieve Construction Jobsites of the Future by using Machine Control construction equipment and IoT in order to significantly reduce CO2 emissions in the entire lifecycle of construction equipment. Komatsu has also been making efforts to achieve high-level energy savings of production sites through IoT-based "connectivity". As an industrial leader, Komatsu is determined to drive its activities to realize a low-carbon society.
