Development of Environmentally-friendly Products

We are working on the development of products excelling in environmental performance (such as energy conservation and resource saving) compared with conventional models in all the products in order to provide environmentally-friendly products pursuing “comfort, safety and security”.

Specifically, at the planning and development stage of each new development item, development targets are set according to the “Production Environment Assessment” which classifies environmental performance in 44 items.

Then, after assessing whether the targets are achieved at the stage of designing and test production, the products which cleared the “Green Products Conforming Assessment Standard” are commercialized as “Green Products”.

Moreover, products among the Green Products that have outstanding environmental performance such as top level performance within the industry (*1) and/or products that are commended for its environmental performance by a third party are recognized as “Super Green Products”.
