November 1, 2017

Dentsu Inc. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President and Representative Director: Toshihiro Yamamoto, capital: 74,609.81 million yen) announced today that it has updated its "Eco-First Commitment" that it established as an "Eco-First Company" certified under the Ministry of Environment's "Eco-First Program*." With this new commitment, Dentsu aims to cooperate with stakeholders to realize a sustainable society on a global scale. Reflecting this, the Company pledged its "Eco-First Commitment (updated)" to the Minister of the Environment on October 31, 2017.

Furthermore, based on the "Sustainable Development Goals" (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in September 2015, the Company has set 2030 as a target to fulfill this goal within the updated commitment.

Taking into account its social responsibility as a company promoting communication activities led by advertising services, we continue to promote efforts to reduce our environmental burden and address various environmental issues in the communication area. Toward this end, in 2008 Dentsu received its first "Eco-First Company" certification. In March 2012, through its updated "Eco-First Commitment", the Company pledged to promote social and environmental awareness through activities such as proactive promotion of environmental communication and committed to advance its evolution to a green office environment.

Going forward, we will continue to strive to realize a sustainable society by promoting the recognition and promotion of social issues, including environmental conservation, and the reduction of the environmental impact of our business activities.

〈Outline of "Eco-First Commitment (updated)"〉
1.    We will work to increase awareness and promote understanding of social issues including environmental conservation, to achieve the 17 Development Goals indicated in SDGs.
2.    From the viewpoint of environmental conservation, we will positively and proactively ascertain problems, share information and find solutions.
3.    We will gradually advance the reduction of the environmental burden related to our business activities.

*Eco-First Program
Companies committed to the Minister of the Environment's "Eco-First Program" must take actions concerning their own environmental conservation such as measures against global warming, waste and recycling. Furthermore, the enterprises must be committed to environmental conservation with the objective of becoming an advanced, unique, industry- leading business. An Eco-First company recognized by the Minister of the Environment is one that is environmentally advanced in their industry and which continues to conduct environmental activities.
