Carbon Trust and ClassNK partnership

Carbon Trust and ClassNK partnership

(Posted on 11/12/18)

The Carbon Trust and ClassNK Consulting Service Co., Ltd. have signed an agreement to work together to develop a commercial partnership for offering climate change and sustainability services. The partnership will initially involve the two organisations exploring collaborative opportunities to deliver advice and consulting projects for businesses in Japan, as well as in selected markets across Asia more broadly.

As a result of this partnership, corporates in the region will be able to access world-leading technical advice and support across areas such as setting ambitious climate change targets, accurately reporting on environmental impacts, and developing strategies for achieving reductions. It will also be possible for companies to access independent environmental assurance and certification services, in line with internationally recognised standards.

Japan’s Ministry of the Environment has encouraged the nation’s businesses to show leadership on climate change issues. This includes explicit recommendations that large companies should look into setting science-based targets for greenhouse gas emissions reduction, reporting to climate change opportunities and risks investors in line with the Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), and committing to 100% renewable electricity use.

Hugh Jones, Managing Director of Business Services at Carbon Trust Advisory Ltd., said: “We are delighted to be partnering with ClassNK Consulting Service to help corporates in Japan to make business sense of climate change. We look forward to bringing our 18 years of experience around the world to support companies in finding the economic and environmental value in improved efficiency, implementing sustainable innovations, and credibly demonstrating their achievements to investors and customers.

Daikichi Nomura, President at ClassNK Consulting Service, added: “ClassNK Consulting Service has been at the forefront of helping a variety of businesses to operate in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. We are excited to work with one of the most internationally-respected organisations on climate change and sustainability, the Carbon Trust, so that we can extend our services even further and help corporates across Japan and Asia more widely to take action on one of the most significant issues facing the world today.”
