Renewable Energy Initiative: RE10x10 by 2025
AROMASE (MacroHI) has conducted an ISO 14064 greenhouse gas inventory and ISO 14067 product carbon footprint analysis. Through this, we have identified a significant emissions hotspot: electricity usage in our operations and manufacturing processes.
To address this crucial carbon reduction initiative, we have made a firm commitment to the Greenpeace RE10x10 Initiative. Starting from 2020, we pledge to achieve a target of using over 10% renewable energy by 2025. We are proud to announce that we have already surpassed this goal, achieving more than 60% renewable energy monthly usage basis in 2023 at our headquarters.
Commitments towards Net Zero by 2030
In 2020, AROMASE (MacroHI) proudly obtained its official “B Corporation” certification and subsequently joined the esteemed global initiative, B Corp Climate Collective’s “Net Zero 2030.” This ambitious undertaking aims to achieve the commendable goal of attaining net zero emissions by the year 2030. Building upon this achievement, in 2022, AROMASE (MacroHI) further demonstrated its dedication to environmental progress by joining the United Nations “Race to Zero” – SME Climate Hub, an initiative that symbolizes its ongoing commitment to combat climate change.

|8.12 tCO2e||Fuel for company-owned vehicles, generators of the office building, refrigerant, etc.|
|109.19 tCO2e||Use of purchased electricity|
|70.75 tCO2e||Based on the materiality assessment, the following items are the significant items in Scope 3 of the GHG Inventory and Carbon Neutrality:
ㆍ Purchased goods and services: Top 10 procurement of goods, Fuel- and energy-related activities (not included in scope 1 or scope 2)
ㆍWaste generated in operations: Transportation and disposal of daily operational wastes in the headquarter office.
