Information Disclosure Based on TCFD Recommendations
The Lintec Group recognizes that climate change has impacts on its business activities and positions it as an important management issue. We will strengthen our risk management system and responses to risks and find new business opportunities to make contributions for our sustainable growth and the development of a sustainable society. Moreover, we will proactively disclose information on our responses to climate change according to the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and further improve our corporate value through engagement with stakeholders.

|Governance||The Sustainability Committee (meeting four times a year, in principle) discusses policies and implementation plans and supervises their progress regarding specific measures related to sustainability, including
responses to climate change-related issues. The committee is chaired by the president and comprised of all directors and officers in charge of promoting committees under the Sustainability Committee. The
outcomes of discussions are reported to the Board of Directors.
Climate change-related issues are assessed firstly by the Environmental Committee, via the TCFD Subcommittee, and finally by the Sustainability Committee. Measures to respond to issues are implemented and managed at each site. The status of responses is put together by the Environmental Committee and reported to all directors and officers in charge at the Sustainability Committee.
Corporate Governance System
|Strategy||Considering risks and opportunities associated with climate change as an important matter in developing its business strategies, the Lintec Group set out the following two scenarios and conducted scenario analysis
for its domestic business up to 2030. Consequently, we identified risks and opportunities, as shown in the following table.
We will integrate measures to respond to these climate change-related risks and opportunities into initiatives we take under our long-term vision, LSV 2030, and will carry out analysis, covering our business outside Japan, from a longer-term perspective.
Lintec Group’s initiatives
|Risk management||To reinforce its risk management system, the Lintec Group established the Corporate Risk Management Committee, comprising executive general managers and general managers of offices under the direct control of
the president, in April 2018, and has since held committee meetings regularly.
As the system to promote sustainability activities was revamped and strengthened in April 2021, the purpose of the committee was redefined as: “to comprehend business risks and opportunities, establish policies to respond to them, and implement and verify the policies within the corporate structure.” The committee evaluates and analyzes risks, including natural disasters, based on issues recognized by committee members and the results of risk identification conducted annually with managers. Results of evaluation and analysis are reported to the Sustainability Committee and the Board of Directors to receive their instructions for response.
Meanwhile, the Environmental Committee collects, identifies, and evaluates climate-related risks, and reports the results to the Sustainability Committee, which examines the need for response and issues business instructions to officers in charge, as needed, via committees reporting to it. Officers in charge who receive such instructions implement measures in their departments. The Environmental Committee monitors the situation for changes on a continual basis and regularly determines whether the initially set indicator or target has been achieved or not.
The Lintec Group will continue to strengthen its risk management capability through coordinated efforts of committees and improve the risk management system for the sustainable growth of the Group.
