Information Disclosure Based on TCFD Recommendations
DeNA’s mission is “We delight people beyond their wildest dreams.” DeNA collaborates with various stakeholders as appropriate with the aim to deliver Delight to a variety of areas and contribute to creating a world where all people can shine.
The DeNA Promise (Our Social Promise), part of the value, includes “Acting Sustainably.” As a global citizen, DeNA will contribute to a sustainable future by promoting corporate activities that emphasize harmony among the economy, society, and the environment.
Among social issues, DeNA believes that climate change has a particularly large impact on society, and as a corporate group that upholds the above mission, vision, and value, DeNA recognizes the importance of addressing climate change. With this in mind, DeNA announced our support of the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) in June 2022 and provides information disclosure based on TCFD recommendations.
The DeNA Board of Directors oversees DeNA’s climate change response policies and measures, etc., based on DeNA’s basic policy on efforts surrounding sustainability and recognition of the risks and opportunities of climate change.
The DeNA management meeting deliberates and decides on policies and measures to address climate change, and reports regularly to the Board of Directors on the progress of these measures and other matters.
The department responsible for sustainability, centered on the CEO, who is the director responsible for sustainability, coordinates the response policies and measures, etc. decided at the management meeting and each internal department takes the initiative in promoting said response policies and measures, etc.
The DeNA Group currently recognizes the following risks, measures, and opportunities posed by climate change, taking into account the characteristics of the Group's business.
In considering risks, measures, and opportunities, we have divided them into two scenarios: the below 2°C scenario in which the transition to a decarbonized society is promoted and the average temperature increase is limited to less than 2°C (assume mainly transition risks* will materialize), and the 4°C scenario in which the transition to a decarbonized society is not promoted and the average temperature increases 4°C (assume physical risks will materialize).
*Transition risks: Risks associated with the transition to a low-carbon economy (policy and law (e.g., tightened regulation), technology (e.g., costs of introducing new technology), markets (e.g., consumer preferences), reputation)

|Risk (Negative Effect)||Measures||Opportunity (Positive Effect)|

|4℃ scenario|| || |
For risks related to climate change, the department responsible for sustainability coordinates with the Compliance & Risk Management Office, which oversees the company-wide risk management process, to promote recognition of individual risks and formulate response policies by each internal department.
Such risks are reported to the Board of Directors and the management meeting on a regular basis in accordance with the company-wide risk management process.
DeNA has calculated the greenhouse gas emissions on a non-consolidated basis as an indicator for managing climate-related risks and opportunities for the DeNA Group.
DeNA’s actual greenhouse gas emissions are as follows.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions (Coverage: DeNA non-consolidated, unit: t-CO2)
In the future, DeNA will also explore the possibility of calculating the Group's Scope 1, 2, and 3 greenhouse gas emissions.
- Scope 1: All direct greenhouse gas emissions
- Scope 2: Indirect greenhouse gas emissions from purchased electricity, heating, or steam consumption
- Scope 3: All other indirect emissions in the value chain not covered by Scope 2
Conclusion of Agreement on Decarbonization and Achieving the SDGs with the City of Yokohama
In April 2022, DeNA signed a collaboration agreement with the City of Yokohama on sustainable machizukuri to realize the SDGs Future City Yokohama. The agreement calls for collaboration between DeNA, with its
entertainment, digital technology, and bustling facilities, and the Yokohama SDGs Design Center, with its expertise in SDGs initiatives and extensive network of businesses in the city. The two parties will work together to promote sustainable
machizukuri toward the realization of Yokohama as an SDGs future city through the involvement of businesses and organizations and the creation of a system that enables citizens and visitors to engage in
decarbonization and SDG initiatives in a fun way.
First, we will focus on strengthening partnerships with companies and organizations that sympathize with and support this agreement.
An electronic approval system and authentication-type printers have been installed to significantly reduce the use of paper documents. Monitors have also been installed in conference rooms to encourage paperless meetings.
Recycling and Reuse Activities
Stationery, umbrellas, and other items no longer needed in the office are collected on a regular basis, and those that are still usable are reused within the company to reduce waste.
In FY2021, office chairs that were no longer needed due to our office relocation were transferred to employees to enhance the work environment for remote workers and reduce waste.
We also collect used books from within the company and from employees, sell them, and donate the collected funds.
Paper materials are collected in dedicated recycling bins.
Promotion of Green Purchasing
We promote green purchasing of stationery supplies (paper and writing implements) and IT supplies such as PCs and monitors.
Introduction of LED Lighting
We use LED lighting in our offices. Since they are brighter than fluorescent lights, the number of lights installed can be reduced, leading to a reduction in power consumption during use.
Time-Controlled Operation of Air Conditioning
The air conditioning in each area of the office is time-controlled so that the air conditioning is turned off after a certain period of time after the end of business hours. This reduces power consumption in non-operating areas.
