  • Emissions are for reference only.
  • FY20 is calculated using the 6th Aisin Consolidated Environmental Action Plan coefficient. FY21 and 22 is calculated using the same 7th Plan coefficient.

7th Aisin Consolidated Environmental Action Plan

As a member of the Aisin Group, Advics will steadily implement and achieve its environmental action plan, with the aim of building a society in which everyone can live in harmony with nature and with peace of mind.

Priority implementation items

All Aisin Research Group

In order to promote environmental activities globally, Aisin Group holds energy conservation study groups, environmental conservation study groups, EMS study groups, and product environment study groups.

Acquisition of ISO14001

In January 2005, our head office area acquired ISO 1, the international standard for environmental management. Our top priority is to develop environmentally friendly technologies and products, and we promote activities based on the concept of ``respecting limited resources.''

Utilization of natural energy

We are promoting the use of natural energy, such as installing solar panels on buildings, and securing electricity for our BCP.

Power generation capacity 1,730kWh/hour
CO2Annual reduction in emissions 960 t

Effective use of treated wastewater

ADVICS Kariya Plant reuses purified wastewater treatment water as cooling water for production equipment and waste oil concentrators, resulting in a total wastewater consumption of 165,000 m3Reduced water usage in /year.

Reusing anti-static gloves by washing them

Previously, the Advics Handa Factory disposed of used anti-static gloves as industrial waste. We focused on the fact that depending on the dirt and damage, it can be washed and reused, and as a result of building a reuse system within the factory, we have been able to reduce waste by 500 kg/year.

Environmental beautification activities

We regularly carry out cleanup activities in the vicinity of our company. By keeping the area clean through cleaning activities, we are helping to further improve the environmental awareness of our employees.

Carbon neutral

Advics aims to achieve carbon neutrality in order to solve the problem of climate change.

What is carbon neutral?

Global warming is said to be a major cause of climate change, and preventing global warming has become an important issue in order to protect our lives.
Carbon neutrality refers to reducing the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions, including carbon dioxide, to virtually zero by subtracting the amount absorbed by forests, etc., in order to prevent global warming.

Carbon neutral promotion system

We launched a Carbon Neutrality Promotion Working Team in FY2021 and a Carbon Neutral Management Department in FY2023, and are promoting COXNUMX reduction activities in collaboration with AISIN Group.

Efforts of each team

We contribute to reducing lifecycle CO₂ emissions through product development and energy-saving activities during the production process, taking into consideration everything from procurement and manufacturing of raw materials and parts to vehicle use and disposal.

CO of our own products2reduction

By reducing the weight of parts, reducing the number of parts, and replacing materials, we can reduce CO emitted during the product life cycle.2reduce.

CO through product use2Contribution to reduction

  • We provide regenerative cooperative braking systems to improve the energy efficiency of electric and hybrid vehicles. Controls friction-based braking and contributes to maximizing electrical energy recovery.
  • It minimizes the phenomenon of brake drag while driving, contributing to reducing vehicle running resistance. By improving vehicle electricity consumption and fuel efficiency, CO emitted from vehicles can be reduced.2This will greatly contribute to the reduction of

[Examples of initiatives]
We are working to reduce the energy required for heating by insulating the furnace body of the heat treatment furnace, reducing waste due to heat radiation, and circulating and reusing waste heat.
