The Company will develop and introduce energy saving solutions, renewable energy, CO2 capture and utilization technologies, and waste heat utilization technologies. The Company will also promote methanation and fixation of CO2 and the recycling of materials and waste.

In terms of products, AISIN will promote reduction of CO2 emissions in society by developing and implementing products for electric vehicles, including battery electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles, and clean energy-related products, such as ENE-FARM home-use fuel cell cogeneration systems.
