*Effect on revenue and expenses in Japan
Honda strives to measure cost savings and revenue associated with its environmental conservation activities in order to maximize their effects.
In fiscal 2014, we calculated these economic benefits by tallying revenue from the sale of valuable materials resulting from waste and emissions processing, together with costs saved through energy conservation measures.
We not only disclose these data to external stakeholders as indicators of our corporate value, but also use them as a reference for making administrative decisions regarding environmental innovation. Going forward, we will continue working to improve the accuracy of data collected from operations in Japan, while also verifying methods for collecting data from overseas business sites that are suitable for global disclosure.
