HONDA ISSUES EUROPEAN ENVIRONMENTAL REPORT 2016

Honda Motor Europe today issued its European Environmental Report 2016, summarising the results of Honda’s environmental initiatives in the European region for the fiscal year beginning April 1st 2015 and ending March 31st 2016 (FY2015).

The publication of the European Environmental Report 2016 is part of Honda’s commitment to disclosing information regarding its environmental initiatives, serving as a communication tool for collecting feedback and comments from a broad range of outside parties regarding Honda’s environmental policies and practices.

The fifth annual report of its kind, the European Environmental Report 2016 covers all entities which are controlled by the Regional Operation Board of the European region in which Honda, globally or locally, has significant participation in.

The report covers automobiles, motorcycles, power products and parts; summarising data from Honda factories, national sales offices, logistics centres, regional R&D offices and Honda-owned dealers.

The report also contains an overview of Honda’s global environmental vision and results to allow the reader to frame the regional information provided in a global context. This information is taken from the global Honda Sustainability Report 2016, released in June.

Highlights from this year’s European report include:

-The introduction of Honda’s next-generation fuel cell car, Clarity Fuel Cell. Clarity Fuel Cell is the world’s first production FCV to house its entire fuel cell stack and drive system under the bonnet – uniquely allowing seating for five people

- ISO50001 certification for Honda’s flagship European car manufacturing plant, Honda of the UK Manufacturing Ltd. A global first for Honda, this internationally recognised energy management system demonstrates the site’s commitment to the highest standards in efficient energy usage and CO2 reduction

-The continued reduction in CO2 emissions from Honda’s car range. This has been achieved through the success of the highly-efficient 1.6 i-DTEC in the Civic, Civic Tourer, CR-V and HR-V, and the removal of the less-efficient Accord from the European range

-The continued reduction in CO2 emissions across Honda’s production, logistics and sales and services operations. Through increasing the use of low or zero carbon energy sources and significant efforts to make more efficient use of energy, Honda has been able to achieve reductions related to its production, logistics and sales and services operations.
