Yamaha Motor Expediting Carbon Neutrality Goal for Company Factories to 2035 - Carbon-free electricity accelerating progress toward a decarbonized society
Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce that the Company is accelerating its carbon neutrality goal for its factories—including those overseas—to 2035. This represents a 15-year jump as the original target year to achieve carbon neutrality in the revised Yamaha Motor Group Environmental Plan 2050 announced in July 2021 was 2050.
To achieve this new goal, the Company will push initiatives centered on minimizing its energy use as well as relying on cleaner energy. The projected result of these moves by 2035 is a 92% reduction in CO2 emissions (compared to 2010) from production operations at domestic and international Yamaha Motor factories. Furthermore, remaining CO2 emissions will be offset by internationally recognized methods to carry out the Company’s plan to achieve carbon neutrality at all its factories.
