Deployment of Environmentally Friendly Products

The JVCKENWOOD Group recognizes that it is responsible as a manufacturer for reducing environmental loads caused by the production, sale, and use of its products. At present, we focus our efforts on switching and reducing packaging materials to more environmentally friendly materials. 

JVCKENWOOD has changed the packaging of Gumy Wireless HA-FX9BT headphones, launched in the Americas and Europe in May 2019, from blister packaging (made of plastics) to paper box. While our FY2020 target aimed to reduce plastic use in this product by 11.6 tons via a shift to paper packaging, we were able to cut plastic consumption by 11.9 tons due to an increase in shipment volumes. This packaging change enabled the company to reduce its annual plastic consumption and mitigate environmental loads in Europe, where plastic waste regulations have been recently tightened, and in Canada, where single-use plastics will soon be banned.

Going forward, we will continue to expand environmentally friendly packaging products, apply labels with information on carbon footprints and greenhouse gas emissions, and develop environmentally conscious products by using carbon offsets while carefully observing global trends. We will also disclose information on our environmentally friendly products so that customers can confidently choose our products.
