Realize zero GHG emissions from corporate activities
Realize carbon neutrality from sold products and corporate activities
Since the Industrial Revolution, global warming has been caused by greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from human activities.
Under Challenge 1, the entire Yanmar Group will develop and market green powertrains that are compatible with various green energy sources, such as alternative fuels, engines, and fuel cell systems, without compromising customer convenience, as well as agricultural and construction machinery equipped with such powertrains, in order to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
Realize zero environment impact from corporate activities by circulating resources
Promote Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle for each of the four themes
In "Challenge 2", we set four themes and goals aiming to realize corporate activities to be environmental impact free.
For example, in Theme 1 "Waste Reduction and Recycling," we will minimize the resources used in all aspects of our corporate activities, and at the same time, make all the resources we use recyclable by 2040.
In this way, we aim to become a company that supports beautiful lifestyles while protecting the global environment from current activities, we set intermediate goals for 2030-2040 for each theme, and introduce improvements and new mechanisms to save the global environment step by step.
Contribute to customers' negative GHG emission and resource circulation
Providing a series of new solutions beyond the framework of conventional corporate activities.
Under Challenge 3, the Yanmar Group will propose solutions to convert customer activities into GHG-negative and resource-recycling activities as active GHG reduction activities outside of the Group's corporate activities. For example, in the field of energy conversion, in addition to the energy management systems and high-efficiency internal combustion engines that we already provide, we also offer solutions to minimize the losses that occur during energy conversion and energy use in our customers' activities, such as solutions that convert waste heat into electricity and usable heat, and we aim to provide solutions such as CO2 capture and carbon fixation.
In the area of food production, in addition to solutions that support the minimization of input materials in food production, such as precision fertilization, we aim to provide solutions that recycle production residues and food residues generated during food production as energy and food production materials, such as composters and biomass gasification systems, and solutions that realize food production that contributes to environmental conservation and recovery, such as regenerative farming.
