UD Trucks analyzes the environmental impacts of its vehicles at each stage of the product life-cycle, from product development and design to the disposal and recycling of parts. Since most CO2 emissions occur during the usage stage, the Company develops technologies that realize better fuel efficiency. It also holds eco-driving seminars for truck drivers to provide practical advice and tips on driving more efficiently.
UD Trucks looks for ways to make disassembly work easier and use resources more efficiently starting from the product development stage. For example, bumpers are designed to be simply disassembled into three components, headlights can also be easily dissembled into interchangeable lens and LED units, and fenders are made from recyclable materials. Each dealer has installed disposal facilities and
properly sorts waste materials during truck disassembly and disposal.
