Since its founding in 1955, Bunka Shutter is a comprehensive building materials manufacturer that manufactures and sells various shutters, building materials for buildings, and housing. We are expanding our business. Based on the two concepts of “life-in”, which provides products developed from the consumer’s perspective, and “life-long partnership”, which creates lasting relationships of trust with customers through the enhancement of after-sales maintenance systems. , We have been striving to provide products and services that are useful for daily life, with our strengths in “technical capabilities” and “construction capabilities”.
Currently, in the three-year medium-term management plan ending in fiscal 2023, the Group is conscious of capital costs and balance sheet management, and is promoting a management strategy based on an optimal capital structure policy. We are striving toward the realization of “Aiming to be a comfortable environment solution group that opens up the future”.
In this medium-term plan, we are focusing on initiatives that contribute to the “mitigation” and “adaptation” of climate change in order to realize a sustainable society that is linked to the principles of ESG management and the SDGs. For “mitigation,” we have positioned the eco business to reduce greenhouse gases, and for “adaptation,” we have positioned the disaster prevention business to minimize damage from large-scale natural disasters as the “eco & disaster prevention business.” We will further expand our business as one of the core businesses of the “Focus Business”.
As we promote management from an ESG perspective, in terms of initiatives from an E perspective, we aim to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions from our business activities by 2050 in order to accelerate efforts toward a decarbonized society by 2021. 2020 Decarbonization Declaration” and expressed support for the TCFD (Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures). In addition, in fiscal 2022, we formulated our environmental vision, “Blue neXpand 2050: Let’s spread blue skies into the future.” We will take on the challenge of creating new value.
In order to reduce the environmental burden, we will manufacture steel doors using the “adhesive method” as an initiative that we are developing from 2022. This is expected to improve productivity by shortening the manufacturing time to about one-fourth compared to the conventional welding method, and to reduce the amount of electricity used. In addition, we are promoting “lightening of materials” from 2023, and it is an initiative that can be expected to “reduce CO2 emissions” by about 700 tons annually through these two measures. We will continue to actively propose the eco-friendly steel door “SGD” manufactured by this “adhesion method” and “lightweight materials” as a product that contributes to the realization of a decarbonized society and the achievement of the SDGs.
In addition, in terms of initiatives from the S perspective, we have established action guidelines regarding human rights, and in 2022 we will formulate the “Bunka Shutter Group Human Rights Policy” in order to promote initiatives that respect human rights. We will strive to prevent and mitigate the negative impact of human rights issues and promote appropriate measures to correct human rights risks.
Based on these ESG-oriented management, we will continue to meet the expectations of our stakeholders by promoting environmental investment and growth investment, including TCFD support, in the prime market.
