Developing Green Vehicles
At Honda, we are striving towards developing zero-emission in all our vehicles. We are the first company in Japan to meet the most recent exhaust emission regulations. To reduce the environmental burden of four-stroke engines, we have developed a unique exhaust air injection system and a programmed fuel injection (PGM- F1) (PGM-F1) system, which is currently in use in the HONDA VFR motorcycle. On the other hand, the Giorno Crea, is a new generation, environment friendly 50cc scooter that is highly fuel-efficient.
Honda's production facilities across the world also actively pursue energy-efficient methods and prevent water pollution by reducing industrial waste. Honda has taken aggressive initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of its manufacturing operations, by implementing its concept of the "Green Factory". HMSI too is actively working towards establishing an environment management system.
