This will cut CO2 emissions by about 180 tons in FY2023 compared with the previous year.
In August 2023, Toyoda Gosei set a new target of achieving carbon neutrality by 2030, and is saving energy through production technology innovations and continuous daily improvements, as well as switching to renewable energy. For the latter, Toyoda Gosei is increasing use of renewable energy with the best combination of on-site solar systems, green power, non-fossil certificates,2 and other measures.
In addition to power from existing solar panels at the Toyoda Gosei Memorial Gymnasium, the company will switch to renewable energy (400 MWh annually) using non-fossil certificates with tracking, which certify the environmental value derived from solar power generated within Aichi Prefecture, Japan. Toyoda Gosei will continue its transition to renewable sources for electric power with various methods and achieve carbon neutrality by 2030.
