Reducing environmental impact of development, production and logistics to zero

AISIN Group is working to reduce its environmental impact to zero, chiefly through the Environmental Conservation Working Group. This includes developing products that make effective use of resources and can be recycled, stepping up resource recycling at the production and logistics stages and making effective use of water resources.

Aisin AW Industries is working to reduce the sludge that occurs as a waste material in the treatment of its waste water by selecting or changing the chemicals used in the chemical treatment processes at its treatment plants and optimizing additives.

In fiscal year 2020, we reduced sludge by 20t (5%) year on year by optimizing the chemicals at our waste water treatment plants.

We will actively work to reduce our environmental footprint even further in future.

On November 24, 2019, we ran a booth at Let's Eco Action in Aichi, held by the Aichi prefectural government, outside Kariya station.

We told attendees about the critical issue of plastics in the sea and carried out the Watashi no Eco Sengen (My Eco Action Declaration). Like other companies, AISIN Group has worked on eliminating plastic register bags since 2018, and from January 2020 we have achieved zero plastic register bags in our stores.
