Honda to Enhance Autonomy of Global Environmental Management

Honda to Enhance Autonomy of Global Environmental Management 
Tokyo, June 19, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) -  Honda Motor Co., Ltd. will further
enhance the autonomy of environmental management in each of its six regions -
North America, South America, Europe, Asia & Oceania, China and Japan - as
a part of the transformation of its global operations, which was announced at
the CEO press conference held in September 2012. 
In 1995, Honda established the World Environment and Safety Committee which
discusses and determines plans for environmental conservation activities and
reviews the implementation of such activities on a global level. In 2010, based
on the recognition that environmental issues are a critical concern that
impacts its business operations, the President & CEO became the chair of
the World Environment and Safety Committee, and the COO in charge of each
region began chairing each Regional Environment Committee. Under this
structure, since 2010, Honda has been committed to environmental initiatives in
each region striving to attain regional targets and goals that were set based
on the globally shared environmental policies and technologies. Starting with
this fiscal year, Honda will strive to further reduce its environmental
footprint by accelerating unique regional environmental efforts in various
areas including development, production and sales which better fit with the
environmental regulations, standards and issues unique to each country and
region.

region, please see
