Subaru to reduce direct CO2 emissions
Subaru has launched new initiatives aimed at reducing direct CO2 emissions of the Group.
The new initiatives, together with the already launched other efforts, will contribute to reducing the Subaru Group’s direct CO2 emissions by approximately 20,000 t-CO2/year, equivalent to around 3% of annual emissions, by fiscal 2020 (FYE March 2021).
The new initiatives comprise three key efforts in Japan: installation of a captive-consumption solar power system for facilities in Oizumi, Gunma; introduction of “Aqua Premium” hydroelectricity at the company’s Main Plant in Gunma, and its Tokyo Office in Mitaka, Tokyo; and utilization of the Green Power certification/Green Heat certification program at the company’s head office in Ebisu, Tokyo, and the Subaru Training Center in Hachioji, Tokyo.
Subaru’s Action Plan for the Environment for fiscal 2021(FYE March 2022) and beyond sets the goal of reducing the Subaru Group’s direct CO2 emissions to 30% below fiscal 2016 (FYE March 2017) levels by fiscal 2030 (FYE March 2031) on a total emissions volume basis.
In advance of full-scale implementation of this plan, the company is embarking on practicable initiatives including the “Tochigi Furusato Denki” program already announced.
