Tokyo, March 5, 2020 – Nomura Research Institute, Ltd. (NRI), a leading provider of consulting services and system solutions, was recognized on February 4, 2020 in the Supplier Engagement Leaderboard. This is the highest rating assigned to companies in the 2019 Supplier Engagement Ratings by CDP*1, an information disclosure platform for providing the world’s most valuable environmental data. Recognition in the Leaderboard distinguishes NRI as one of the global leaders in reducing greenhouse gas emissions throughout its entire supply chain and in working to reduce climate change-related risk, as well as in supplier engagement.
Recognition in the Leaderboard followed closely on the heels of NRI’s selection in January of this year to the ‘A List’*2 in CDP’s 2019 survey of climate change. The ‘A List’ recognizes the companies with the highest ratings in the climate change survey.

About the Supplier Engagement Ratings (SER)

The CDP survey of climate change scores more than 8,400 of the companies with the highest market capitalization in the world on initiatives such as greenhouse gas emission reduction activities and climate change mitigation measures. The Supplier Engagement Rankings only assess companies based on questions from the CDP climate change survey that pertain to engagement with suppliers. The 2019 Supplier Engagement Rankings assessed more than 4,800 companies around the world, and only the 159 companies comprising the top 3% were selected to the Leaderboard. Twenty-eight of these companies were from Japan, including NRI.

About NRI’s climate change-related supplier engagement

NRI is taking the lead in reducing the greenhouse gas emissions arising through business activities in its entire supply chain. Amongst the environmental targets that NRI announced in February 2018, one was to set a ratio for the number suppliers and vendors in its supply chain which must set their own environmental targets to achieve the goal of keeping increases in global temperatures below 2°C*3.
NRI also holds ‘Sustainability Dialogues’ with domestic and international partner companies each year, exchanging opinions on various sustainability-related topics. This facilitates sustainability throughout the supply chain as opposed to NRI pursuing sustainability initiatives such as action against climate change on its own.
NRI believes that these proactive efforts to engage with suppliers on climate change have been recognized as high-level in a global context, leading to this selection to the Leaderboard.

The NRI Group will work with a variety of stakeholders to create new value and address social issues including climate change under the corporate philosophy of “Dream up the future” in an effort to contribute to the creation of a sustainable future society.
