Risks and opportunities


Suzuki receives a trend score of -. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely decrease. Targets to reduce in-use emissions intensity by 40% by 2030 and 90% by 2050 from 2010 have been set (but without defining the 2010 value). There are no targets for low-carbon vehicle sales. Suzuki’s continued reliance on internal combustion engine fuel economy improvements will not reduce its in-use emissions quickly enough for its 1.5°C pathway. Its “Small cars for a big future” approach is undermined by changing consumer preferences towards larger more prestigious cars.
