Develop Products that Improve Fuel Efficiency

The development of a variety of fuel-efficient products

Mass production and delivery complete

The development of a variety of fuel-efficient products

Reduce, Abolish and Control the Use of Environmentally Hazardous Substances

Continue to base our environmental management on PRTRs ・Uphold laws and regulations for products and the environment ・Strengthen our system for managing the chemicals used on our products

Reported to government and JAPIA *4,
Emergency response training

Management based on PRTR,
comply with environmental regulations,
strengthen product chemical substance management system

  • *1 Basic Unit: CO2 emissions ÷ sales (in hundreds of millions of yen)
  • *2 3Rs: Recycle, Reduce, Reuse
  • *3 PRTR: Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers (A system used to gather and disperse information on the release of toxic substances from industrial facilities etc. to the environment)
  • *4 JAPIA: Japan Auto Parts Industries Association

Material Balance

In order to limit the energy and materials we use for manufacturing our products, we visualize the environmental burden of our production process. Knowing the exact numbers helps us reducing our environmental burden.

  • Regarding Environmental Reports
    This report covers the domestic production bases: EXEDY Headquarters, Ueno Division, Kawagoe Plant and Hiroshima Plant.
    Preparing this report, we referred to the Environmental Report Guideline (2018 Edition) issued by the Ministry of the Environment.
    The report covers the period from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020. However, matters from other periods that were deemed necessary, have been included as well.
