Achieving harmony with nature

EXPO 2005 AICHI JAPAN inspired AISIN Group to set up biotopes from 2007. After the Aichi Targets were set to stop the loss of biodiversity at COP10 in 2010, we redoubled our initiatives to preserve rare species in the area.

Our Environmental Conservation Working Group actively works on biodiversity initiatives to prevent abnormal environmental conditions and protect the natural environment.

*The index used for emissions per sales is calculated as a percentage of the figure for the baseline year (FY2010) of targets set out in the Sixth Environmental Action Plan.

Note: Past figures have been revised due to changes in the scope of calculation.

Biotopes were set up at Aisin Sin’ei’s Kouta Plant in December 2018 as a biodiversity activity, and the company began working with Hekinan Seaside Aquarium in May and August 2019 to release and protect 170 Pseudorasbora pumila subsp. sensu, a species of fish classified as endangered (IA).

These fish lived in the area around 25 years ago, and were captured and raised by the aquarium. They became extinct in the wild there, but thanks to the action we took, the descendants of the captured fish were returned to the wild.

AISIN Group will continue to protect wildlife in the future.
