Growth That Harmonizes with the Environment


Many environmental and resource-related issues which influence the realization of a sustainable society, such as advancing global warming, excessive energy and water consumption, and the loss of biodiversity, are becoming increasingly more serious on a global scale.

The Yamaha Motor Group believes that the social responsibility of enterprises involved in the global supply of products which support mobility requires substantive measures to address these issues. We recognize that personal mobility, which constitutes the core of our business, will play a substantial role and we take into account harmony with the environment in all our business activities. This includes the development of compact vehicles with little environmental impact through technological innovation, the spread of Smart Power* products such as electrically power assisted bicycles and electric motorcycles, the research and development of next-generation power sources, and the implementation of programs that contribute to society by using the human resources, assets, and know-how accumulated through our business.

*Smart Power: New power sources, primarily for electric vehicles, designed to create a new paradigm of mobility
