Formulation of the Sixth AISIN Consolidated
Environmental Action Plan
Fulfilling responsibility as a global company toward attainment of a sustainable society Maximum efforts are being made by the AISIN Group to help realize such a society
AISIN aims to establish by 2050 a CO2-free system in which CO2 emissions are cut to zero over the entire “life cycle” of products, from production and use to waste disposal. By doing so, AISIN believes that it is possible to establish a sustainable society in which people live in harmony with the global environment. The AISIN Group is prepared to mobilize all its business resources to help establish such a society.
To actualize this policy, we have drawn up the Sixth AISIN Consolidated Environmental Action Plan, a five-year plan aimed at providing Group companies with environmental action guidelines for the period between fiscal 2016 and fiscal 2020.
Under the sixth action plan, we have set priority environmental policy items, specific measures to be implemented and environmental goals in the fields of management and communication, based on the four “environmental axis” adopted under the fifth action plan, with the hope of evolving them into a comprehensive management system.
Priority policy items for each “environmental axis”
|Environmental axis||Priority policy items|
|Establishment of a low-carbon society||
Evolution aimed at achieving zero CO2 emissions over the entire “life cycle” of products
・Promotion and expansion of development of new functional components that can contribute to significant reduction of CO2 emissions/span>
・Establishment of a clean energy factory system and manufacturing under such system
|Establishment of a recycling-oriented society||
Evolution aimed at achieving zero environmental impact
In addition to measures to reduce waste materials:
・Effective use of water resources and promotion of recycling
|Establishment of a society in which people coexist with nature||
Evolution aimed at promoting harmony with nature
・Adoption of a regional program aimed at preserving biodiversity
Evolution aimed at globalizing management and communication
Establishment and operation of a system to evaluate the consolidated global environmental management system (EMS)
We aim to contribute to global environmental activities by disseminating our environmental technologies and know-how to society.
