Internal Certification System for Eco-Products

Regarding the Internal Certification System for Eco-Products

The Kubota Group's internal certification system for Eco-Products was introduced to internally certify products with exceptional environmental friendliness. We evaluate products in accordance with each item stipulated in the Basic Direction of Corporate Environmental Management established by the Kubota Group; namely, "Stopping Climate Change," "Working towards a Recycling-based Society" and "Controlling Chemical Substances", and certify those products that satisfy our internal standards as Eco-Products.

The Pathway to Expanding Certified Eco-Products

Based on the internal certification system established for Eco-Products, we certified additional 22 products in RY2016, bringing the total number of certified Eco-Products to 164. The ratio of Eco-Products to sales was 44.2%, a decrease of 1.0 point compared to the previous reporting year due to a decrease in sales of certified Eco-Products overseas.

We will continue to carry out initiatives focusing on the development of environment-friendly products and expand our Eco-Products lineup.
