The Yamaha Corporation has created the Yamaha Forest in a deforested area of Indonesia, where over 150,000 trees are being planted on 120 hectares over a span of 5 years. Whilst this is on an almost international level, they also plant new saplings in the Eshunada Coastal Forest, raising awareness of deforestation on a local level as well.
After the consolidation of their grand piano production at the Kakegawa Factory, a new co-generation system was introduced in February 2008. The heavy oil-fired boiler formerly used to heat the supply system was replaced with a natural gas-fired boiler that uses LNG for fuel. This system will reduce primary energy consumption by 420 kilolitres in crude oil equivalent per year, cutting annual CO2 emissions by approximately 2,900 tonnes.
With their instrument production lines, the PT Yamaha Music Manufacturing Asia (YMMA) adjusted their production lines to reduce the amount of black glaze coating that was used on the casings of their Clavinova products, which came to a huge reduction of 42%. The Yamaha Group have also eliminated CFCs and HCFCs from their manufacturing processes, as well as creating and maintaining a green procurement initiative, documenting all of their environmental projects within their Corporate Social Responsibility document which is available to download from their website.
