Reducing the amount of CO2 emitted by our products is not the only step we are taking to preserve the environment. Given our philosophy of reducing impacts across the entire product life cycle, we were quick to start reducing the environmental impacts of our business activities themselves. Specifically, we divided our business activities into seven domains and have sought to reduce impacts by being aware of all the factors in each domain that place stress on the environment.
We believe that steadily reducing environmental impacts from both our business activities and products will help us achieve the Honda Environmental Vision and also lead to public recognition of Honda as a company they value.
* The aim of zero emissions initiatives is to reduce waste and substances of concern as near as possible to zero.
