Isuzu Philippines Lunches Solar PV Project
Isuzu Motors Limited
After unveiling its Road to Progress vision in 2022, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) launched its Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Project to become energy self-sufficient and reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions at its manufacturing plant in Biñan, Laguna.
IPC sees itself as a vital engine for Philippine society toward a sustainable automotive chain, thus driving the company from an ESG (environment, social, and governance) perspective. Several Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities were completed last year, and many more are planned for 2023 as part of the company's social aspect.
Last year, IPC did a lot for the environment by getting all its power from renewable sources at the Bataan Solar Plant. In the last quarter of 2022, IPC put 1,100 solar PV panels on the roof of its manufacturing plant.
Solar PV panels with a 500-kilowatt capacity have successfully met up to 22% of the energy usage of the IPC manufacturing plant. The company has reduced its CO2 emissions by up to 1,790 tonnes per year by combining renewable energy from the Bataan Solar Plant with its own Solar PV Project.
“As the global race to decarbonise accelerates, Isuzu Philippines is up to the challenge to prove that is and will always be “Your Responsible Partner”. With the launch of our Solar PV Project, we are taking a big step towards leading the industry on the road to sustainability.”, IPC President Noboru Murakami stated.
