The Yamaha Eco-Products program is an initiative aimed at certifying environmentally-friendly products that meet standards established by Yamaha.

The Yamaha Eco-Label (shown on the right) is attached to those products certified as Yamaha Eco-Products. The aim of the program is to provide customers with environmental-related information and facilitate their identification of our products meeting these standards when they select items to purchase.

For creating the sustainable society, Yamaha Group strives to develop the environmentally friendly products based on Yamaha Group Environmental Policy for creating the sustainable society. Yamaha Eco-Products program started in 2015 to accelerate its efforts.

To promote the development of eco-friendly products, the Yamaha Group has set “Product Environmental Quality Objectives” that take account of environmental preservation, sustainability of materials supply, value for consumers, and other qualities. Those products that meet these standards are specially certified as Yamaha Eco-Products that make major contributions toward realizing these objectives.
