Risks and opportunities


Mitsubishi receives a trend score of – . If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. The company’s emissions reduction target ambition is not strong enough for its 1.5°C pathway. Its transition planning is not detailed enough to demonstrate financial commitment to deep cuts in emissions. Despite the increase in its low-carbon vehicle share of sales, the main driver of improvement in the company’s in-use emissions performance for 2020 is likely a shift in sales mix towards compact vehicles during the Covid pandemic-related sales downturn.
