||First commercial vehicles manufacturer in Japan to install Energy Management System at all dealer locations
Kawasaki - Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC), one of Asia’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturers, today announced its plans, first ever for any commercial vehicles manufacturer in Japan, to fully roll out an energy management system (EMS) at all dealer locations*. Marking an important milestone under its 5-pillar growth strategy “FUSO 2015,” today’s milestone supports the company’s claim in becoming the “Leader in Green Innovation” in which the company focuses on advances in Green Products, Green Factory and Infrastructure and Green Supply Chain to ‘achieve an aggregate CO2 reduction of 7.5% by 2015’.
*Excluding independent dealers
Jointly developed by Itochu Corporation, Itochu Techno-Solutions Corporation and Environment Consulting Organization, the new EMS is designed to reduce CO2 emissions at the sales offices and service shops by visualizing power consumption and automatically regulating the demand-supply of the air conditioning system. The system also allows nation-wide remote control via an on-line power monitoring and control system. MFTBC plans to roll-out the state-of-the-art system at all dealer locations in 2013.
On March 27, the company had just opened a "green" maintenance shop in Yame, Chikugo City, Fukuoka Prefecture. The maintenance shop is positioned as the company's "green" model factory incorporating the latest, environmentally friendly solutions, such as LED lightings, solar power generation systems, new energy management system, drainage water recirculation system, and electric vehicles for daily operation.
Outlining the company's forward steps to become an even greener company, Mr. Akio Suehiro, Senior Vice President of Mitsubishi Fuso Sales Japan said, "Establishing eco-friendly dealers is part of our overall target to significantly reduce CO2 emissions. In addition to rolling out the new EMS, we plan to implement similar green features to that of our Yame Service Center at new dealer locations."
