The DENSO Group formulates the EcoVision every 10 years as a long-term commitment toward environmental management and policies. At present, the Group is working in accordance with the DENSO EcoVision 2025 established in 2016.
Having achieved EcoVision 2015, DENSO has formulated EcoVision 2025 as a new action plan for realizing sustainable communities and societies by 2050. In addition to existing focus areas, three additional targets have been set to be achieved by 2025: ENERGY 1/2, CLEANx2, and GREENx2, known as "Target 3.”
To achieve these targets at the product, factory, associate and management levels, DENSO is promoting specific actions referred to collectively as "Action 10."
