Risks and opportunities


Mazda is awarded a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near term, its score would most likely remain the same. The company has established ambitious long-term emissions reduction targets that exceed those set for the low-carbon pathway. However, it does not have any immediate plans to increase its low-carbon vehicle sales or further engage with consumers to encourage these vehicles’ uptake. On the other hand, Mazda’s management is engaged with climate-related issues, including at the board level, which will facilitate its low-carbon transition planning. Mazda has also recently invested in electrification projects as well as alternative solutions for passenger mobility that will help its decarbonisation efforts.
