Honda Philippines Reduces Carbon Footprint With New Solar Installation

Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) has inaugurated its 1.056 MW rooftop solar power project at HPI’s manufacturing plant in Tanauan, Batangas, in the Philippines. The project, initiated in collaboration with Skye Renewables, has now entered its operational phase.

The solar power project consists of a total of 1,958 panels, each with a capacity of 540 watts. The development harnesses the abundant Philippine sun, generating at least 35% of HPI’s maximum daytime energy demand. This translates to 1,267 MWh of clean energy utilisation annually, significantly reducing reliance on fossil fuels.

Additionally, since solar energy is typically cheaper than traditional grid-purchased power, the solar power project will help HPI realise cost savings. The project also aids in strengthening the company’s sustainability strategy, enabling HPI to achieve its goals of becoming carbon neutral in its operations.

“This inauguration marks a crucial step towards achieving our global carbon neutrality goal by 2050,” said Sayaka Arai-Hattori, President of Honda Philippines, Inc. “We are not just a company that manufactures and sells products; we strive to be a positive force for society. This project embodies our commitment to environmental responsibility and demonstrates our dedication to inspiring a more sustainable future for both our employees and customers.”
