The company’s transition alignment on targets has also declined. In the 2019 Automotive Benchmark Mazda’s targets were assessed as fully aligned. A more ambitious pathway was used for this assessment and input data has been revised. Therefore the company’s vehicle in-use emissions intensity reduction targets are no longer assessed as fully aligned. The company’s 2030 and 2050 reduction targets lack a baseline emissions starting intensity value, therefore, performance against them could not be assessed. Mazda should set clear and robust targets.

Overall, Mazda does not appear engaged with the low-carbon transition. Very little evidence was found of transition planning, of support for climate positive policy or of business model shifts towards activities to remain profitable in a low-carbon economy. Without a significant shift towards low-carbon vehicle sales, the company will continue to fall behind on low-carbon transition alignment.
