Special Feature 2018 - Our Contribution to a Sustainable World
The Nidec Group solves social issues via its business activities, and contribute to the development of society to stay competitive as a socially desired business even 100 years from now. Here are what we do to achieve the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) that were adopted by the UN in September 2015.
1. Driving a Decarbonized Society
Facing the threat of climate change, the international community has chosen to achieve a decarbonized society in the Paris Agreement. The Nidec Group helps accelerate the decarbonization of the global energy system by developing module systems that incorporate high-performance motors and related products and providing power management solutions that support the spread of renewable energy.
2. Realizing Zero Traffic Accidents
It is a universal desire and goal to eliminate road traffic accidents, which take the lives of many people every year. The technologies and products of the Nidec Group have played an important role in improving driving support functions and enhancing vehicle braking performance. We hope that our technologies and products will contribute to realizing zero traffic accidents in the future.
3. Supporting an Aging Society
New social tools, including personal mobility devices, drones, power assist suits, and communication robots, support an aging society through functions such as “carrying,” “moving,” “assisting,” and “communicating.” The Nidec Group supplies brushless DC motors and related products to provide support so that these tools can function more effectively.
