Climate Change

We understand the threats that climate change poses to our society, and we’re working closely with governments, partners, and environmental groups to actively find ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, we’ve prioritized fighting climate change by pledging to make NAGASE carbon neutral by 2050.
