Activities

Development of environmentally compatible products

Development of energy-saving motors
Our R&D Division pursues product development based on the DFE (Design for Environment) concept. The purpose of the DFE concept is to develop products that lead to the minimization of negative impacts on the environment throughout the entire product cycle – beginning with the procurement of raw materials and continuing to production, transportation, usage, and final disposal.

Reduction of CO2 emissions

To assist in lessening the impacts of global warming, Shinano Kenshi strives to minimize CO2 emissions. In fact, at all of our production bases, reduction in use of energy is one of our primary environmental objectives.
Shinano Kenshi Co., Ltd. (the group headquarters) is moving forward with activities aiming to achieve an annual CO2 emission reduction of 1% on average against the absolute value. Dong Guan Shinano Motor Co., Ltd. and Hefei Shinano Motor Co., Ltd. in China are also trying to reduce energy consumption with numerical targets.
