Donation of Limousine Fees for Electric Vehicles to the Junior Eco-Club

We have decided to donate a portion of the fare from its electric limousine service to the Junior Eco-Club of the Japan Environment Association (JEA) from Thursday, July 1, 2021.
Currently, countries around the world are setting targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and Japan has also announced that it aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 46% by 2030 compared to FY2013.
Hinomaru Limousine is actively promoting the SDGs, and as one of these goals, we are working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by actively introducing electric vehicles to our fleet, and we are also conducting environmental protection activities by recommending environmentally friendly services to our customers.
In order to promote these efforts and to support the development of children who will be equipped with the spirit of caring for the environment, the ability to take action, and the power to create the future, we will start making donations to the Junior Eco-Club.
With the spread of the new coronavirus infection, economic activities have been restricted and people have been forced to refrain from going out of their homes for unnecessary reasons.

Introduction of low-emission vehicles

A passenger car runs about 10 kilometers per liter of gasoline, but a large bus is a very inefficient vehicle with a fuel consumption of only about 3 kilometers due to its heavy body. In 2003, we introduced Japan’s first hybrid-electric bus, and operated it in the Marunouchi and Nihonbashi areas of Tokyo as a bus with low environmental impact.
In 2010, we introduced the “Zero Emission Taxi,” an electric cab that aims to return to the starting point of public transportation from the consumer’s point of view, with zero emissions while driving, and began operating it in the Marunouchi, Otemachi, and Yurakucho areas of Tokyo. In 2014, Hinomaru Limousine introduced the industry’s first Tesla Model S (electric vehicle) for limosine in Japan as “Zero Limousine”.
Hinomaru Limousine aims to continue to be a starting point for the development of transportation infrastructure that will impress overseas that Tokyo is an environmental model city.
