(Based on assumed exchange rate of JP¥110 to US$1.)
In fiscal 2008, we introduced NSK eco-efficiency indicators (Neco) to quantitatively assess how products fare in terms of environmental friendliness. For example, the Neco value of a bearing will increase as service life, compactness, and ability to withstand high-speed rotation increase and as weight and friction loss decrease, relative to conventional products. We assess Neco scores during development and aim for new products to have a Neco score of 1.2 or higher.
Products developed with Neco score greater than 1.2
Products developed in line with our Basic Policy on Environmental Friendliness
