As an initiative for environmental management, Kawasaki formulated the First Environment Management Activities Plan in 1994,and the entire Company started work on environmental conservation activities. Later, in 1999, we established the “Environmental Charter” to demonstrate our commitment to the environment both inside and outside the Company, and as a long-term vision, formulated the “Environmental Vision 2010” in 2003 and the “Environmental Vision 2020” in 2010. We implement specific environment management activities plans based on the above and are steadily carrying them out.
With the realization of “Environmental Vision 2020” in sight, we have formulated the new “Kawasaki Global Environmental Vision 2050” with the aim of making a significant contribution to the global environment through products and services, in addition to zero environmental impact from business activities. Through steady environmental management activities constantly aiming for a vision that anticipates the times, we will make progress toward realizing the Group Mission “Kawasaki, working as one for the good of the planet.”
Formulating the Kawasaki Global Environmental Vision 2050
Kawasaki Establishes Global Environmental Vision 2050 Pursuing Three "Frees": CO2 FREE, Waste FREE and Harm FREE
In light of the Paris Agreement enacted to restrict global warming and the
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations,
the Kawasaki Group has announced that it will collaborate
toward the realization of a sustainable society in the future,
and formulated the “Kawasaki Global Environmental Vision 2050.”
The embodiment of the Group’s environmental management is based on the three visions of
“CO2 FREE,” “Waste FREE,” and “Harm FREE,” and the Group will contribute to controlling global
warming, promoting a recycling-oriented society and protecting biodiversity toward the year 2050.
In fiscal 2011, the KHI Group drafted Environmental Vision 2020, which seeks to define the Group’s identity in 2020 from an environmental perspective in line with the KHI’s Group Mission : “Kawasaki, working as one for the good of the planet (Enriching lifestyles and helping safeguard the environment: Global Kawasaki).”
