Risks and opportunities


A trend score of = is awarded to Toyota. The company’s score would most likely remain the same in a near-term reassessment, as targets for action become more ambitious. Consumers in the US, one of Toyota’s main markets, tend to prefer larger vehicles. Also, Toyota has decided to focus on conventional hybrid vehicles, rather than advanced low-carbon vehicles – namely plug-in hybrid, battery electric or fuel cell electric vehicles. Nevertheless, Toyota is clearly committed to innovative business models related to electrification, connectivity, automated driving and artificial intelligence, opening its potential for rapid change. Toyota’s low-carbon transition could be further accelerated by increasing climate expertise at the board level.
