Risks and opportunities


Honda is awarded a trend score of –. If Honda were reassessed in the near term, then its score would most likely not improve. Honda was an early adopter of hybrid technologies, and the company’s steady progress on improving the fuel efficiency of its internal combustion engines is likely to continue. However, if its share of sales from low-carbon vehicles does not increase, Honda risks falling behind the fast pace of reductions required under the automotive industry’s low-carbon pathway. Fortunately, Honda already has multiple technology-related business solutions beyond passenger vehicle manufacturing that help ensure the company will remain profitable in a low-carbon economy.
