Mar. 14, 2024

Amsterdam, The Netherlands – DENSO, a leading global mobility supplier, has recently announced that all of its European manufacturing plants have achieved carbon neutrality, marking a significant milestone in its commitment to reducing its environmental impact.

Certified by TÜV Rheinland, a globally acknowledged third-party testing and certification organization, DENSO's carbon neutrality status was achieved through the implementation of a comprehensive strategy that includes energy savings across its operations, solar panel installations, the use of renewable energy sources, and the purchase of carbon credits to offset any remaining emissions.

Expanding upon this significant milestone, 16* of DENSO European Manufacturing Companies successfully achieved carbon neutrality for Scope 1 and 2 emissions in the fiscal year 2022, ending March 31, 2023, depicting its core strategies of “Green” and “Peace of Mind” across all facets of its business across the European region.

Former CEO of DENSO in Europe, Yasushi Mukai, expressed his enthusiasm for the achievement, stating, "Receiving carbon neutral** certification for all our production facilities in Europe is a vital step forward in our journey towards cleaner and more sustainable manufacturing. This milestone was made possible through strong collaboration and the determination of carbon-neutral leaders and the EU Green Team, which underscores our commitment to realizing zero CO2 not just through our mobility products but across all our business operations. Let's leverage our momentum and lead the way forward".

As part of its future strategic vision, DENSO aims to achieve carbon neutrality independently of carbon credits by 2035. The carbon-neutral manufacturing plant showcases the company's dedication to innovation toward sustainable manufacturing processes and being a responsible corporate citizen.

Looking ahead, DENSO continues to inspire and engage in collective efforts to drive positive changes and contribute to society and a more sustainable global landscape.
