Q3

The Correct
answer is “Blue Skies for Our Children”.

From Honda's vision of "leaving a clear blue sky for the children of the future," we started research on low-emission vehicles in the 1960s, when environmental problems were getting worse. In 1972, we launched the low-pollution CVCC engine, the first engine in the world to comply with the U.S. Clean Air Act, which many thought was an impossible challenge at the time. The original slogan inspired by Honda engineers is still at the core of our spirit to tackle environmental issues. "We want our children to have the joy and freedom of mobility." "We want a sustainable society where people can enjoy life." "Blue Skies for Our Children" became our slogan to articulate that desire and hope for the future.

Q5

The Correct
answer is “Zero reduction in paid vacations”.

Honda adopted its Triple Zero concept in 2011. For the climate change issue, we aim to develop renewable energy technologies to have zero CO2 emissions from "well to wheel" (from energy production to its use in the automobile). For energy issues, we aim to have zero energy risk by developing smart home systems to create and use energy at home. For resource issues, expanding "reduce, reuse, recycle," we aim to achieve zero waste. Based on our Triple Zero concept, we envision a zero-impact society.

Q6

The Correct
answer is “HEPS”.

To evaluate the environmental performance of its products, Honda has created its own Honda Environmental Performance Standards (HEPS). With the HEPS, we aim to accelerate the evolution of environmental and energy technologies to achieve zero CO2 emissions in the product life cycle. To understand how much we have reduced CO2 emissions compared to older models, we classify and certify three categories of environmental standards. By ensuring that all Honda products conform to one of the HEPS standards, we are working to realize a scenario of zero CO2 emissions.

To tackle our greatest environmental challenges, climate change and energy issues, we know we must reduce CO2 emissions from our products. To do so, we set 2020 as our target year, and aim to reduce average CO2 emissions per unit during the use of automobiles, motorcycles, and power products by 30% compared to 2000 levels.

Q9

The Correct
answer is “home energy production for home consumption”.

The Honda Smart Home System (HSHS) is comprised of a Honda cogeneration unit and other components. This system is intended to manage all aspects of a person’s energy usage, including EVs and other electric mobility devices, as well as fuel cell vehicles (FCV). In addition to reducing domestic CO2 emissions, the HSHS enables home-level energy self sufficiency in case of a power outage or natural disaster. Saitama City in Japan has been using a HSHS as part of its E-KIZUNA Project since April of 2012.

Q10

The Correct
answer is “Set air conditioning at 20℃ in summer”.

Honda implements “Honda Green Action” in order to raise the environmental awareness of each of our employees. As part of this initiative, we are developing programs that encourage employees to become good environmental stewards . Our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions from our products by 2020 were offset somewhat by increased emissions as the result of earthquakes and other factors, but we are moving steadily toward our goal. We also continue to reduce environmental impacts from our business activities. To safeguard the environment, however, more creativity and effort are needed. Let us all continue to keep the environment in mind and work for the future.
