Carbon neutrality is an important theme for Aisin, which is in the manufacturing industry. Japanese electronics manufacturer Aisin has announced a plan to become carbon-neutral and reduce its CO2 emissions from production by 50% by 2030.

For the first time, AISIN CORPORATION held an ESG briefing today to deepen dialogue with stakeholders and help them better understand the Company's ESG initiatives.

Maintaining the corporate principle of "Inspiring'movement,' creating tomorrow," Aisin promotes a variety of social initiatives. Carbon neutrality, which is a pressing global issue, is an important theme for Aisin, which is in the manufacturing industry. We want to reduce CO2 emissions not just while driving, but throughout the entire product life cycle.

We announced our planned path and investment plans for achieving carbon neutrality, in terms of both "products" to be provided to customers and "production" activities, at the briefing.

Product-related initiatives Improve the total energy economy of electric vehicles by 10% or more by 2025 by leveraging a wide range of products and technologies that we have developed thus far, such as electric units, thermal management, cooperative regenerative brake systems, and body products.

Aisin's strength in the powertrain field stems from the fact that it is the only parts manufacturer with a complete lineup of electric drive units for HEVs, PHEVs, BEVs, and FCEVs, allowing it to provide products that meet the needs of customers from all over the world.

Expand the lineup of compact, highly efficient products for all vehicle classes by around 2025, particularly for eAxle, an area where competition is heating up.

Establish a manufacturing system capable of producing 4.5 million electric drive units by 2025.

Accelerate initiatives in four areas: "power source/heat source/muda (waste) reduction," "power generation/combustion," "CO2 reuse," and "energy management," with the goal of reducing production CO2 emissions by 50% by 2030.

Introduce a new technology to reduce CO2 emissions in melting furnaces, one of the major processes for powertrain unit production, with the goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 80% by 2030.

Increase the rate of renewable energy usage by developing a new solar power generation technology in-house, with the goal of increasing the renewable energy (solar power) rate at all global bases to 7% or higher by 2030.

In terms of products, by 2025, establish a global production system capable of producing electric drive units and cooperative regenerative brake systems, including in the United States and China. Over the next five years, a total of 270 billion yen will be invested.

In terms of production, the plan is to invest a total of 110 billion yen over the next ten years to achieve the target of reducing CO2 emissions from production by 50% by 2030.

Aisin will contribute to the realization of a carbon-neutral society by refining its technologies and making the best use of its strengths in "products" and "production."
