Through Each Plant Hino Motors Strives to Manufacture Quality Vehicles and Support Transportation that is Friendly to the Earth and People

At our Headquarters & Hino Plant, we are actively establishing varied and diverse targets that set the direction for our environmental initiatives. In diligently working to achieve these goals, Hino Motors is endeavoring to minimize the environmental load created by both production and distribution processes. Based on these activities, we recognize that continuing efforts to supply products with leading environmental performance to society lie at the heart of our corporate social responsibility. As a result, we constantly review and work to lower the environmental load of every function of our business from development to purchasing, production, preparation, and office management. In this manner, our ultimate goal is to harmoniously coexist with the global environment. Furthermore, in addition to the mottainai mindset held by each employee, which in Japanese conveys an attitude of preventing waste, we make efforts to eliminate muda, mura, and muri (unprofitable, unsteady and unreasonable, respectively) in our energy-saving and resource-saving activities while at the same time engaging in activities aimed at protecting the natural environment.

Located in close proximity to a residential area, Hino Plant makes every effort not to disturb or comprise the lives of its neighbors. As a result, we strictly adhere to measures that minimize noise, vibration, and odor. Looking ahead, we will continue to manufacture quality vehicles and support transportation that is friendly to the earth and people.

Striving to Become a People-Friendly, Environment-Friendly, Clean Plant

At the Nitta Plant, located in a lush green setting, we have made the 3Ss (seiri, seiton and seisou, meaning well-organized, well-arranged and clean) as the basis for all plant activities. We are also promoting environmental conservation and improvement activities with a sustained awareness of environmental load based on the Nitta Plant Environment Policy.

By working to prevent environmental risks before they occur focusing particularly on upstream production activities, we are working to alleviate environmental risk. As a further initiative for reducing load of the environment, all plant personnel are aiming at higher goals for the prevention of global warming. At the same time, we will make efforts to maintain a clean plant that is accepted by the local community as friendly to people and the environment.
