With the adoption of the Kyoto Protocol, corporate efforts to
address environmental issues have become a very important and
challenging component of corporate social responsibility (CSR).
One of these initiatives currently in the public spotlight is the

saving driving behavior but has had also a significant effect on
decrease in the number of accidents.
We, the General Insurance Association of Japan, have developed
the "Eco & Safety Drive" program, which means driving with
"awareness" and "consciousness" (the "Eco Drive" way) so that this
