Environmentally Friendly Products

  The Yamaha Group has positioned efforts to develop technologies and provide products that are friendlier to the environment as major environment management theme under its Yamaha Group Environmental Policy.

  To respond to this policy and with respect to the various product groups that the Yamaha Group manufactures, steps are taken to conduct product life cycle assessments (LCA) that cover all product life cycle stages, including material procurement to production, transport, use, and disposal to identify what aspect of a product group life cycle has the largest environmental impact and to tackle environmentally friendly design from multiple angles. In addition, in order to further confirm the environmental friendliness of products, Yamaha promotes the management of chemical substances contained in products, as well as the green procurement of materials, parts and components.
