Hino Motors, Ltd. (Hino) has published its 2012 CSR Report on the web in both English and Japanese. The report covers the initiatives Hino undertook in fiscal 2011 to fulfill its corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Hino sees CSR as its fundamental approach for contributing to society, and works to integrate it into all of its business activities-the development, production, sales and service of commercial vehicles. At Hino, CSR is essential to realizing the corporate mission stated in the Hino Credo: "To make the world a better place to live by helping people and goods get to where they need to go - safely, economically and with environmental responsibility - while focusing on sustainable development."
The purpose of the 2012 CSR Report is to enhance communication with stakeholders by clearly disclosing the approaches, policies, and measures that Hino has adopted for putting the Hino Credo into practice for each type of stakeholder. Hino has been publishing CSR reports on the web after ending the printed edition in 2009, aiming to release even timelier information and to provide more detailed data and relevant reporting.
