Initiatives for Environmental Management

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.”
