We believe that human resources are the most important factor in the success of environmental protection activities. To promote environmental protection effectively, it's vital that each and every one of our employees are made aware of environmental problems and that they work together with a clear understanding of their own roles in solving them. In view of this, Aisin AW runs continuous environmental education and training programs, in order to utilize the various skills of our employees to produce concrete results.
Environmental accounting seeks to provide an understanding of environmental conservation costs, which represent outlays targeted at reducing the environmental burdens arising from business activities, and the environmental conservations benefits (material benefits and economic benefits) obtained as a result of those activities. The discipline serves as a means of evaluating the extent to which a given organization is engaged in environmental conservation.
Environmental conservation costs for FY2016 totaled ￥11.2 billion.
These costs are equivalent to approximately 1% of the company's annual revenue.
Environmental conservation benefits (economic benefits) totaled ￥1.7 billion.
In addition to continuing its aggressive information disclosure policy, Aisin AW is committed to streamlining its environmental conservation programs by upgrading management tools to better reflect the unique requirements of environmental management. The company also plans to aggressively introduce consolidated environmental accounting for targeted group companies.
