Environmental Initiatives

1.

At Anden, regulatory compliance is the highest priority for the purpose of the protection of people’s health and the environment. Anden manages, inspects, and monitors its own business activities measured against the high standard of Denso Group.

2.

Anden also proactively takes actions to reduce energy and resource consumption and minimize the impact to earth’s environment.

3.

At the development and design stages, Anden selects materials and processes that best reduce the impact to the environment and people throughout the entire life of the product – from part manufacturing and use to disposal.

4.

These initiatives are evaluated each year by external auditors for the ISO14001 compliance, and improvements are made continuously.

Recycling Initiatives

An in-house recycling center was established in 2001.
Anden has actively recycled discharged materials. We achived Zero emmisons in 2003. We are now working to reduce its level of emissions.

Making Products Smaller and Lighter

Anden is proactive in making products smaller and lighter in order to reduce the amount of raw material consumption and to increase a car’s fuel efficiency.
