TDK Corporation has announced that 100% of the electricity used in all manufacturing sites in Japan are now from renewable energy sources, resulting from initiatives to purchase electricity from Tohoku Electric Power Co., Ltd. and other domestic power companies sourced from renewable energy.

TDK is taking action to achieve at least 50% renewable energy as a share of total worldwide electricity consumption of TDK Group worldwide by fiscal 2025, marking the halfway point to its overall goal of 100% renewable energy in 2050, which coincides with the company’s 2050 net-zero environmental charter.

With this initiative in Japan, 44 of all of our manufacturing sites worldwide (81 sites) are operating with 100% renewable energy as of July 2023, resulting in a current renewable energy introduction rate of around 40%.

TDK Group is also pursuing the following initiatives at its worldwide manufacturing sites:

Installation of photovoltaics (to convert light into electricity) at specific Amperex Technology Limited (ATL) sites (a consolidated subsidiary of TDK manufacturing rechargeable batteries), and the use of renewable energy electricity since January 2022 at one of its sites.

Converting electricity from geothermal sources since July 2022 for all electricity used at TDK Philippines Corporation (a consolidated subsidiary of TDK manufacturing passive components).

Installation of photovoltaic systems at TDK Electronics (a consolidated subsidiary of TDK manufacturing passive components) sites around the world – including Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, India, Malaysia, Spain, and more.
 

The entire TDK Group will continue to introduce renewable energy at its manufacturing sites worldwide and will contribute to the realization of a sustainable society by aiming to convert 100% of energy use to renewable energy by 2050.
