Major Environmental Problems and Policies

Major Environmental Problems and Policies

Automotive make logistics and transportation easier. Yet, vehicles have a significant negative impact on the environment. Automobile manufacturing uses chemicals that pose a threat to environmental contamination as well as resources like water and fossil fuels. Vehicles burn fossil fuels like gasoline and light oil while they are moving. Moreover, they release gases like CO2, which are responsible for air pollution and global warming. As a company that manufactures and sells vehicles, Mitsubishi Motors has promoted environmental efforts with a focus on reacting to climate change and energy concerns brought on by global warming, water resource conservation, resource circulation, and environmental pollution avoidance.

The following are the top ten environmental issues:

  • Changing climate.
  • Energy.
  • Water.
  • Ecosystem health and land use.
  • Heavy metals, Hazardous Chemicals.
  • air contaminant.
  • waste administration.
  • Depletion of the ozone layer.
  • Fishing and the oceans.
  • Deforestation.

Taking Steps to Address Energy and Climate Change Issues

There are worries that natural disasters, rising sea levels, desertification, and food scarcity problems could be brought on by climate change as a result of global warming. It is thought that these occurrences will eventually threaten human life itself because of their effects on biodiversity and harm to human health. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) came to the conclusion that human activity was almost certainly to blame for the global warming that occurred after the 20th century in its Fifth Assessm

ent Report. Over their entire existence, from production to driving to disposal, vehicles use fossil fuels and produce CO2, a factor in global warming. We believe that limits on vehicle fuel economy and CO2 emissions will be harsher in every nation and region because the majority of CO2 emissions by vehicles occur when they are in motion. At the same time, we think that customers would value fuel economy more when choosing a car because of rising consumer trends toward seeking out ecologically friendly items.

Also, there is a chance that using fossil fuels won’t be possible due to the desire to reduce climate change, which would pose concerns for fossil fuel procurement. In light of the aforementioned, the corporation is giving efficient energy use and the reduction of global warming, both of which combat climate change, top priority.

In order to create a satisfying and low-carbon society, the company announced its “Environmental Vision 2020” in 2009. Since then, we have been trying to lower our energy usage and CO2 emissions. By fostering the development of electric-powered vehicles, enhancing fuel economy, raising productivity in our business operations, and introducing energy-efficient gadgets, we are lowering CO2 emissions and consuming less energy.

Also, we think that one of the adaptation solutions to the increase in natural disasters brought on by climate change will be a power feeding function of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles like the V2X*1.

Protecting water resources

Around the world, awareness of the need to conserve water resources has grown over time. We think it’s critical to take into account how water withdrawal and discharge affect the environment in areas with high water risk. On the basis of the aforementioned, we research the water risk in each nation and region and are working on programs like encouraging the use of recycled water to cut down on water usage.

Resource Distribution Programs

Due to the growing global population and the development of new economies, resource consumption tends to rise globally. Many limited resources, including rare earth minerals, are used in the construction of automobiles, especially next-generation cars like electric-powered vehicles. As a result, there are hazards associated with resource depletion and procurement challenges.
Based on the aforementioned, the company supports activities for recycling and resource conservation and views effective resource usage as our task. More specifically, we recycle end-of-life automobiles and create products that take recycling into account. We strive to reduce waste that is disposed of externally during production.

Prevention of environmental pollution

Human health and biodiversity are negatively impacted by soil and water pollution brought on by heavy metals in waste water, particulate matter (PM), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur oxides (SOx), and other air pollutants. Risks from compounds left in the environment that don’t break down over time have gained a lot of attention.
Because of engine combustion while moving, the majority of cars emit NOx and SOx. In addition to NOx and SOx emissions from boiler combustion, volatile organic compounds (VOC) from the use of paint and solvents are also released during manufacture. Furthermore, there is a risk of contamination during the whole lifecycles of cars, from manufacturing to disposal, as a result of the materials used in them containing environmentally toxic compounds.

In the future, each nation and region will likely implement harsher rules for the management of ecologically dangerous compounds and the emissions performance of automobiles. We also think it’s critical to take into account how waste water from commercial operations in areas with high water risk affects the ecosystem.

On the basis of the aforementioned, we have prioritized campaigns to reduce environmental degradation. In terms of products, we are concentrating on the creation and adoption of low-emission cars as well as the control and elimination of components that include ecologically dangerous compounds. We have been attempting to reduce the amount of VOC emissions produced during production when using paints and solvents.
