DENSO takes environmental action to reduce landfill waste

Southfield, MI— DENSO an-nounced its new five-year North American Environmental Action Plan. The plan takes effect in April at all DENSO group companies in North America and will serve as a roadmap for DENSO’s North American environmental activities.

DENSO’s environmental action plan is organized into various categories:

Eco Products: DENSO will develop products that are lightweight and energy saving and consider environmental improvement. In all of its products, DENSO will reduce its use of resources; control and reduce environmentally hazardous substances such as mercury, cadmium and hexavalent chromium, and integrate environmental planning in the product design stage.

Eco Factory: DENSO will work to reduce the environmental impact of its manufacturing facilities through reduced water use (to 50 percent of 1999 levels); reduced CO2 emissions (by 18 percent in manufacturing facilities and 6 percent in other facilities); reducing landfill waste to 75 percent of 1999 levels, and reduce hazardous substance emissions by decreasing manufacturing facility regulated emissions volume to 30 percent of 2000 levels.

Eco Management: DENSO group companies will develop environmental action plans and reinforce environmental partnerships with suppliers through activities such as developing green procurement guidelines and promoting the purchase of environmentally friendly products.
