Isuzu Motors's Environment Management

Isuzu Motors has implemented an EMS (Environmental Management System) which is certified under ISO14001 in order to widely promote environmental stewardship across the entire business and value chain.
Coinciding with the revision of ISO14001 in 2015, Isuzu Motors integrated site-based environmental management systems into a company-wide system. In 2016, it extended the scope of its ISO14001 to encompass all its group companies, making the transition to ISO14001:2015.
As a result, Isuzu's EMS has streamlined business processes as well as various internal processes making it more efficient and effective in pursuing environmental activities.
