Medium-Term Action Plan

 The Alps Alpine Group formulates a medium-term action plan for environmental preservation every three years and undertakes global warming countermeasures and other activities accordingly.
 From fiscal 2019, following the business integration with Alpine Electronics, we have been pursuing a new 1st Medium-Term Action Plan for Environmental Preservation that additionally incorporates long-term targets for fiscal 2050. Between fiscal years 2016 and 2018, the former Alps Group pursued its 8th Medium-Term Action Plan for Environmental Preservation and attained all targets for global warming countermeasures and other environmental preservation activities.
