Progress in Meeting Environmental Targets

2020 Product CO2 Emissions Reduction Targets

Reducing CO2 emissions from our products is a necessary step in combating climate change issue and energy issue, the greatest challenges to our business. That is why we created the 2020 Product CO2 Emissions Reduction Targets, through which we seek to reduce the average amount of CO2 emitted per unit of motorcycles, automobiles, and power products 30% from 2000 levels by 2020. We hope to achieve these targets by developing more efficient technologies and marketing more energy-efficient products.

2020 Product CO<sub>2</sub> Emissions Reduction Targets

‚óŹ Progress update

In fiscal 2014, we continued our momentum from fiscal 2013 and cut per-unit CO2 emissions from motorcycles even further as a result of increased sales of fuel-efficient commuter models in the Asian market, including the Vario (Indonesia), Air Blade (Vietnam), and Activa (India).
Likewise, we achieved a further reduction in per-unit CO2 emissions from automobiles. This was due in part to increased sales of models that saw fuel efficiency improvements as part of a complete redesign, such as the Fit Hybrid and Odyssey in Japan, and the Accord, which underwent redesign the previous year, in the U.S. market.
And lastly, we achieved a modest reduction in per-unit CO2 emissions from power products compared to fiscal 2013 levels despite a decline in sales of household cogeneration systems, which have low per-unit emissions, and robotic lawnmowers, which emit zero exhaust gas. Increased sales of 1-kW generators with relatively low per-unit emissions, and the release of new highly efficient water pumps contributed to this reduction.
