Heightened Awareness as an Environmentally Friendly Brand

Kawasaki believes that one of its important responsibilities is to make its environmental policies and initiatives easy to understand and to disclose those policies with transparency.
We conduct Kawasaki Green Product Promotion Activity, in which we register products based on an assessment of environment-related aspects of product performance and the manufacturing process. This activity is aimed at broadly communicating and instilling awareness of our support for the environment through our products.
In addition, we work to appropriately disclose information regarding our environmental activities to stakeholders through the Environmental Report and on our website, and by proactively responding to questionnaires, etc., from external evaluation organizations, such as CDP and the DJSI Asia Pacific Index.


Kawasaki Green Product Promotion Activity

Kawasaki-brand Green Products is a program in support of the Group Mission, “Kawasaki, working as one for the good of the planet,” and aims to boost the environmental performance of products and accelerate the reduction of environmental impact caused by associated manufacturing processes. The products selected for this program must meet criteria established by the Company and are categorized as either Kawasaki Green Products or Kawasaki Super Green Products. The products thus categorized are then publicized in compliance with ISO 14021.
The program logo embodies the Group’s commitment to environmental sustainability through products and manufacturing. The Kawasaki Group’s primary business areas—land, sea, and air transport systems, energy and environmental engineering, and industrial equipment—each with innovative and advanced technological capabilities, form three solid pillars, which together support the global environment.

Conformity Assessment Procedure


External Information Disclosure

Kawasaki discloses information about its environmental management activities to its stakeholders through means such as the Kawasaki Report (integrated report), the Environmental Report (this document), and its website. In addition, we receive questionnaires from many external evaluation organizations, including the CDP Climate Change Information Request conducted by the CDP; surveys from the DJSI Asia Pacific Index; the Environmental Survey conducted by Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Asset Management Co., Ltd. (SNAM); and the Toyo Keizai CSR Survey, conducted by Toyo Keizai Inc. We view these as the voice of stakeholders representing investors, and we proactively disclose environmental information by responding to such questionnaires.
In fiscal 2018, Kawasaki was once again selected for inclusion in the DJSI Asia Pacific Index and as a stock for investment by the SNAM Sustainable Investment Fund.


Product Assessment

For newly developed and designed products, as well as for particularly important products, Kawasaki assesses products according to such criteria as resource and energy savings and recycling potential, with the goal of reducing the environmental impact of our products across their life cycles. Because specific evaluation techniques vary depending on the type of product, each business segment draws up product assessment rules appropriate to the characteristics of their respective products. The main items evaluated in product assessments are shown below.

①Product weight reduction
②Product energy saving
③Longer product life
④Product safety and environmental conservation effectiveness
⑤Measures for product disposal and recycling
⑥Environmental impacts when problems or other extraordinary circumstances occur
⑦Provision of information for use and maintenance
⑧Compliance with regulations
