Our commitment to the environment is a global initiative, in which all regions work together on common issues while initiating unique activities specific to their region.
Yazaki fills this corporate policy by ensuring we meet the environmental expectations and requests of stakeholders all over the world.
Yazaki Group has divided its global operations into geographic regions and is fostering the acquisition of ISO 14001 certifications in each. At the same time, the Group is making efforts for the appropriate management and improvement of its ISO 14001-compliant environmental management systems. In each of its regional divisions, Yazaki has set unique environmental targets in consideration of local laws, cultures, and customs, while staying true shared ideas.
The founder of Yazaki has instilled the spirit of the Japanese phrase "Mottainai" into the Yazaki employees. Mottainai translates to "what a waste" and it is in this spirit that we practice energy saving and recycling techniques to protect the environment.
Yazaki is the largest producer of wire harnesses in the world and a global leader in the development and delivery of vehicle power and data solutions. We pair this expertise with the development of high voltage cable and connection systems for hybrid and electric vehicles. As a pioneer in high voltage products, we are setting industry standards with our solutions for plug-in electric vehicles.
Yazaki pioneered high voltage products and our high voltage products enable hybrid and electric vehicles to operate more efficiently, reducing gas consumption and lowering harmful emissions.
Yazaki has initiated research into developing new environmentally friendly plastics. The applications include automotive components and their related packing materials. Renewable and biodegradable plastics based on composites made up of polypropylene and kenaf fiber. This research addresses the need to reduce the carbon imprint on the environment, relieve the pressure on landfills and create new opportunities in "green" materials.
