Toyoda Gosei Moves Up Timing for Carbon Neutrality to 2030
Kiyosu, Japan, August 9, 2023: Toyoda Gosei Co., Ltd. has set a new target for CO2 emissions (Scope 1, 2) from its production activities. This moves the timing for achieving carbon neutrality to 2030, 20 years forward from the original target of 2050.
Toyoda Gosei aims to be a leading company in the environmental field, and since 1993 has set medium-term goals for its activities. In 2016, the year after the Paris Agreement was adopted, the company declared that it would achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. Now, taking its responsibility as a company to contribute to solving the risks from climate change that are growing more severe in all parts of the world, the timing for achieving carbon neutrality has been brought forward significantly.
To achieve the new target, the company is intensifying and accelerating its efforts to save energy through production technology innovations and continuous daily improvements, and to switch to renewable sources of electricity. To reduce CO2, the company is undertaking a fundamental review of its manufacturing with a focus on the rubber and plastic parts that are its main products. In energy conversion, the company will increase its use of renewable energy with the best combination of solar panel installation at its business locations, green energy, and non-fossil certificates.
Toyoda Gosei will contribute to the preservation of the global environment by developing environmentally-friendly materials and products and implementing manufacturing innovations with the concerted efforts of the entire Toyoda Gosei Group and ever closer coordination with suppliers.
