Risks and opportunities


A trend score of – is awarded to Mitsubishi. If Mitsubishi were reassessed in the near term, its score would most likely worsen. The company has not yet established any long-term targets or a low-carbon transition plan. Although Mitsubishi states that it will develop a 2030 environmental vision, the level of robustness and ambition is currently unknown. Furthermore, the company’s conventional internal combustion engine efficiency and growth in share of sales from low-carbon vehicles have stalled in recent years suggesting that Mitsubishi will fall further behind the required action under the low-carbon pathway.
