Yamaha Motor Company has pledged to become carbon-neutral across all its business activities and the life cycles of its products by 2050.
It has set a new ‘Environmental Plan’, which includes targets for 2030 and 2035, as well as the overall aim of becoming carbon-neutral across its Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by 2050.
Yamaha is targeting a reduction of 54% in its direct emissions and a 38% reduction in its indirect emissions by 2035 from a 2010 baseline.
The company says it will offset hard-to-abate emissions.
Yoshihiro Hidaka, President, said: “Without fearing change, we will aim to create new value, expanding human possibilities by continuing to boldly take on uniquely Yamaha challenges.
“Going forward, Yamaha Motor will continue striving to create sustainable environmental and social value as well as raise corporate value through constructive interactions with its stakeholders.”
