Environmental activities at design development phase

By setting a target value for CO₂ reduction contribution of environmentally friendly products as well as sales ratio target value, we promote expansion of environmentally friendly products.

Cumulative contribution of CO₂ reduction
by environmentally friendly products

Sales ratio of environmentally
friendly products

Positioning of environmentally friendly products is calculated based on life cycle assessment (LCA).
We compare the environmental efficiency of conventional products and new products and indicate them as product environmental criteria.
Products that their product environmental criteria are above a certain value are positioned as environmentally friendly products. (Based on Japan Auto Parts Industries Association guidelines)

Environmental activities at the production phase

We set the target value for energy conversion (electricity equivalent), waste reduction, waste recycle, water consumption reduction, and then evaluate achievement by activities.


Energy consumption converted to electricity, and Trend of basic unit of energy consumption converted to electricity (Japan)


Trend of waste volume excluding scrap iron and
basic unit of waste volume (Japan)
Recycling rate (Japan)


Trend of water consumption and
basic unit of water consumption (Japan)
