Efforts to Prevent Global Warming

Clarion’s measures to prevent global warming include cutting down the use of electricity and fuel in order to lower CO2 emissions. Moreover, we are actively working on efficient and environment-conscious transportation. We are also striving to contribute to the prevention of global warming by making efforts to reduce CO2 emissions through products.

Introduction of EVs (Electric Vehicles) as Company Cars

Clarion started deployment of EVs (Nissan “LEAF”) as its company cars and built charging stations for EVs. With introduction of EVs, we further promote consideration for reduction of CO2 emission in our business activities.

CO2 Emission Reduction Activities

The Hitachi Group is striving to achieve two essential CO2 emission reduction targets: Cutting its total CO2 emission by 12% in fiscal 2010 (against fiscal 1990 level), or 25% per unit of production domestically. The total energy consumed by the Clarion Group in fiscal 2010 in terms of CO2 emission was 6,693t- CO2 .

We shall make further efforts to reduce CO2 emission through review of production processes, introduction of energy-saving equipment and steady activities of improvement of working environments.

CO2 Emissions

In August 2007, new Clarion Headquarters Office became fully operational. It employs actively facilities with considerations to the environment and energy efficiency such as air-conditioning system with thermal storage in the building, natural ventilation and sensor activated automatic lighting system, among others. Furthermore, use of private cars to work is in principle banned, and as its side effect, CO2 emission is reduced by 124 t-CO2.

Active Use of CO2 Credit (Emission Trading)

Clarion started new approach for more consideration to the environment through deployment of international air transport services with CO2 credit. As we use international air transport services, we procure CO2 credit, following the Kyoto Mechanism, and transfer it to redemption account of the Japanese government. The procurement of CO2 credit, at the same time, contributes to social infrastructure of the State of Karnataka, India, where the project is located from which we procure the credit.

∗ ECO2AWB of Nippon Express is used for procurement of CO2 credit and for transfer to redemption account of the Japanese Government
