Initiatives to Address Important Social IssuesWe solve important social issues in each country and region through each of our businesses.Here, we showcase three examples of our main initiatives.Environmental initiatives: “Environmental Plan 2050”Toward achieving the Yamaha Motor Group Environmental Plan 2050A variety of issues that are related to the environment and resources that could have an effect on the realization of a sustainable society are becoming increasingly serious on a global level, including the advance of global warming, energy and water utilization, and conservation of biodiversity.Until now, the Company has promoted efforts to maintain harmony with the global environment in all of its corporate activities. Going forward, under the three targets of a low carbon society, a recycling society, and a society in harmony with nature, the Company aims to reduce its environmental impact while actively promoting conservation of the natural environment, where many of the Company’s main products are used, and to contribute to a sustainable society as a “Kando Creating Company.”Environmental management initiativesThe environmental activities of Yamaha Motor started in 1990 with the setting of a Global Environmental Policy. In 1997, the Environment Committee was established as a governance structure for environmental management, and as Groupwide initiatives, the Yamaha Motor Group Environmental Plan 2010 was established in 2003, and the Yamaha Motor Group Environmental Plan 2020 was established in 2009, under which environmental activities were promoted in the four categories of “Eco Products,” “Eco Operations,” “Eco Management,” and “Eco Mind.”In terms of results as of December 31, 2018, we have reduced CO2 emissions per net sales for the Group by 40% versus our set target of 12% (from the base year of 2009) and reduced the total waste volume for Yamaha Motor by 25.4% versus our set target of 9% (from the base year of 2012), and our targets were achieved ahead of 2020.Currently, underpinned by the “2°C scenario,” to suppress the temperature rise from before the industrial revolution to less than 2°C, the common understanding of CO2 reduction in the international Recycling SocietyLow Carbon SocietySociety in Harmony with NatureYamaha MotorEnvironmental Plan2050Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.
