Through mobility, new encounters and cultures are created and people's lives become more enjoyable. Automobiles and motorcycles are vehicles that help carry people's happiness to other places, but Honda believes that such happiness should not come at the expense of the Earth's environment or by hurting someone. In its wish to ensure a sustainable society in which everyone can genuinely feel at ease and freely move wherever they wish, Honda maintains an active set of environmental and safety initiatives.
Through this global environmental symbol, Honda wants to pass on the "joy and freedom of mobility to the next generation" (for our children), therefore, the company wants to realize a sustainable society where people can enjoy life (blue skies). This slogan continues to represent Honda's passion toward tis environmental commitment which has not wavered and will remain resolute in the future.
IIn pursuit of the concept of "producing products with the lowest environmental impact at factories with the lowest environmental impact," the Yorii Plant of Saitama Factory started operation in 2013. Aiming for Yorii to become the world's top-class plant in energy conservation, Honda has put in place state-of-the-art production technologies and a highly efficient production system. Thanks to the 2.6 MW solar generation system installed on top of the building, the plant has reduced annual CO2 emissions by about 1,200 metric tons (Calculation of CO2 equivalent is based on the Tokyo Electric Power Company's 2011 unadjusted emissions factor of 0.464 t-CO2/MWh).
Honda aims to ensure safety for everyone who shares the road, by communicating knowledge on safety and the skills for safe driving and riding to as many people as possible through safety education, by developing advanced vehicle technologies, and by promoting telecommunication networks for the mutual exchange of safety information.
