What Honda Europe is doing today
Through our products, projects and partnerships, we are continuing to reduce the impact of Honda’s operations upon the environment, leading society towards a sustainable future. Here are four examples of the progress we are making in Europe.
Advanced intelligent charging using 100% renewable energy
e:Progress harnesses industry partnerships and AI to provide intelligent charging for Honda e owners in the UK. Available on any tariff, smart scheduling makes responsible use of the energy infrastructure, to charge your car based on when you use it, how much charge you need and when energy is at its cheapest.
Pioneering energy management with V2X Suisse
Honda and V2X Suisse partnered on a trial project to demonstrate the vital role electric vehicles and bi-directional charging can play in the future of energy management. The first mass-deployed bi-directional COMBO-CCS charging network enables each Honda e to return up to 20kW of energy to the power grid at times of high demand, balancing energy demand and supply.
Next-gen Honda eGX electrified power units
Designed for the construction industry, Honda’s eGX power unit provides an electrified, low-noise solution that is interchangeable with existing petrol-powered GX engines.
Clean, green energy for Honda’s logistics operations
Honda’s logistics facility in Gent, Belgium installed a 200m tall wind turbine to generate clean, green energy on-site that will, at a minimum, meet 70% of the facility’s power needs. It is a significant step to ensure that Honda meets immediate and future sustainability targets.
European Environment Report 2023
Sustainability has always been at the heart of Honda's philosophy, and we continue to make every effort to leave “blue skies for our children” in harmony with Honda’s global environmental symbol.
This philosophy is more than words—it is integrated into our core business activities and decision-making, with our associates bringing it to life through initiatives benefiting communities and the environment.
Honda Europe’s annual European Environmental Report explains what we are doing to realise our ambitions around environmental and sustainability commitments. It summarises the results of the business’ environmental initiatives in the region for the latest financial year.
