Honda views the preservation of the environment as a core management responsibility. Our efforts are guided by the Honda Environmental Statement and extend to all aspects of our business operations and involve associates at all levels of our organization.
Honda Environmental Statement
In June 1992, Honda established and announced the Honda Environmental Statement, defining its commitment and guiding its efforts to address environmental issues.
"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 promote a successful future, not only for our company, but for the entire world."
We should pursue our daily business interests under the following principles:
- We will strive to recycle materials and conserve natural resources and energy at every stage of our products' life cycle—from research, design, production and sales, to service and disposal.
- We will strive to minimize and find appropriate methods to dispose of waste and contaminants that are produced through the use of our products, and at every stage of the life cycle of these products.
- As both a member of the company and 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.
- We will consider the influence that our corporate activities have on the regional environment and society, and endeavor to improve the social standing of the company.
