Environmental Action Plan
To realize its Eco Vision, every five years DENSO formulates an Environmental Action Plan outlining specific targets and plans, and conducts its activities accordingly. The seventh phase of the Environmental Action Plan (April 2021–March 2026) calls for the achievement of Target 3 and Action 10, which are identified in Eco Vision 2025. This plan clarifies specific actions and goals to be reached by March 2026.
Identifying Priority Issues
In consideration of society’s requests and expectations for DENSO’s environmental initiatives, The sixth phase establishes the three axes of “Energy,” “Clean,” and “Green,” which involve our response to energy and climate change, our response to resources, water, and materials with an environmental burden, and our response to biodiversity and coexistence with nature. Revolving around these axes, the sixth phase determines 10 actions based on anticipated risks and potential business opportunities as well as the perspective of our products, plants, employees, and overall management. These 10 actions cover all of our business domains, and all employees work toward their achievement.

Initiatives toward Carbon Neutrality
As we have been steadily promoting initiatives aimed at realizing our targets for 2025, based on the DENSO Eco Vision 2025, there has been an accelerating shift in global society from aiming for a low-carbon world to a carbon-free one.
This accelerated shift has had a major impact on DENSO’s product development and production, and, as such, we have raised the targets we aim for with our initiatives to reduce CO2 emissions to an even higher level of carbon neutrality.
With regard to our Monozukuri (manufacturing) activities, we are continuing and strengthening our energy-conservation activities while incorporating the shift to electricity derived from renewable energy sources within our aims.
In addition, we are striving to reduce CO2 emissions from our mobility products to the greatest extent possible by promoting the development of electrification technologies for all aspects of mobility. Furthermore, we are working to achieve negative CO2 emissions through the establishment of technologies to capture, recycle, store, and reuse CO2. Through these efforts, we will aim to achieve carbon neutrality across all of society
