Low-Carbon Lifestyle and Movement
DENSO believes that environmentally responsible conduct on the part of its can make a significant contribution to the prevention of global warming.
To this end, we are making efforts to establish a foundation for and raise awareness of Eco Life, including reducing transport energy by half through the introduction of next-generation BEV/PHEV company cars and car sharing, as well as reducing energy used at home by half through energy-saving ingenuity.
Initiatives to Reduce People’s Movement Energy by Half
DENSO promotes the use of clean energy vehicles and low pollution-emitting cars in the Company’s fleet and maintains and promotes the use of public transport through the dispatch of a shuttle bus to and from the nearest station.
In January 2022, DENSO introduced a fuel-cell electric bus in an effort to promote the use of clean energy and to contribute to the growth of a hydrogen-based society. In addition to its use as a commuter bus, there are plans to utilize the vehicle to transport passengers to and from tours of the Company’s plants.
Promoting an Eco-Friendly People Mover System[DENSO CORPORATION]
There are numerous occasions in which vehicles are used for work purposes. In order to reduce environmental load and conserve energy when moving, DENSO CORPORATION is promoting the introduction of an eco-friendly people mover system that combines DENSO’s unique technologies (macro grid, etc.) and eco-friendly vehicles (BEVs, PHEVs).
Furthermore, DENSO possesses ultra-light electric vehicles with stored energy, which serve as a transportation power source in the event that our conventional business-use power sources become suspended due to a natural disaster or other emergency.
Eco-Driving Promotion[DENSO CORPORATION]
We have designated November of each year as eco-driving awareness month. Throughout this month, we run internal programs to promote eco-driving and traffic safety education in a bid to raise employee awareness.
