The Road to a Healthier Environment

Honda has endeavored to solve environmental problems since the 1960s. We introduced the Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion (CVCC) engine, becoming the world's first automaker to comply with the 1970 U.S. Clean Air Act--a challenge thought by many at the time to be insurmountable. In 1992, we released the Honda Environment Statement to articulate the basic stance we had developed until that time to reduce environmental impacts at every stage in the life cycles of our products.
Today, this Honda Environment Statement is the foundation upon which we carry out all of our environmental efforts.

Honda Environment Statement

As a responsible member of society whose task lies in the preservation of the global environment, the company will make every effort to contribute to human health and the preservation of the global environment in each phase of its corporate activity. Only in this way will we be able to count on a successful future not only for our company, but for the entire world.

We should pursue our daily business interests under the following principles:

  • 1. We will make efforts to recycle materials and conserve resources and energy at every stage of our products' life cycle from research, design, production and sales, to services and disposal.
  • 2. We will make every effort to minimize and find appropriate methods to dispose of waste and contaminants that are produced through the use of our products, and in every stage of the life cycle of these products.
  • 3. As both a member of the company and of society, each associate will focus on the importance of making efforts to preserve human health and the global environment, and will do his or her part to ensure that the company as a whole acts responsibly.
  • 4. We will consider the influence that our corporate activities have on the local environment and society, and endeavor to improve the social standing of the company.

Established and announced in June 1992

Honda Environmental and Safety Vision

We announced that our direction in the years leading up to 2020 would be to provide "good products to customers with speed, afford ability, and low CO2 emissions." We dreamed of a society where everyone can safely and confidently go anywhere and the Honda Environmental and Safety Vision was set. The vision expresses our passionate desire to contribute to the sustainable growth of society and harmony between people so that we can continue to deliver excitement through products and services that support personal mobility and a better life in general.

Honda Environmental and Saf ety Vision

Realizing the joy and freedom of mobility and
a sustainable society where people can enjoy life

In working to achieve this vision, the following objectives shape our environmental initiatives around the world:

● At each stage of a product's life cycle (products, corporate activities), Honda aims to

 ・Minimize the use of fossil fuel and resources newly recovered from the Earth
 ・Minimize environmental impacts, including greenhouse gas emissions

● Honda aims to reduce to zero greenhouse gas emissions from Honda products used for mobility and in people's everyday lives

We established "Blue Skies for Our Children" as a global environmental slogan expressing our commitment to do more to realize our environmental and safety vision. The graphic on the left symbolizes the global environmental slogan.
