Risks and opportunities


Suzuki is awarded a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near term, its score would most likely worsen. The company has not set any long-term emissions reduction targets. Furthermore, despite selling a larger share of conventional hybrid vehicles as well as reducing its fleet emissions in line with the allocated pathway, Suzuki does not have any low-carbon vehicles sales and is due to continue manufacturing mass volumes of internal combustion engine vehicles. Moreover, the company has not developed mobility solutions beyond passenger vehicle ownership or worked to reduce the structural barriers that low-carbon vehicles face when entering the market. Overall, the company is not aligned with the low-carbon pathway.
