TDK Corporation (TSE:6762) is pleased to announce that from April 1, 2023 it will switch to electricity derived from 100% renewable energy sources at all manufacturing sites in the Niigata-Tohoku area through its participation in the "Yorisou, renewable energy" service provided by Tohoku Electric Power Co., Ltd.
