Toyota: Toward Achieving Carbon Neutrality by 2050

From the Keynote Speech at Automotive World 2023



  At the 15th Automotive World (Advanced Automotive Technology Expo) held in January 2023, Mr. Hirofumi INOUE, President of the Advanced R&D and Engineering Company, Toyota Motor Corporation, gave a keynote speech entitled "Toward Achieving Carbon Neutrality in 2050".

  To achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, it is necessary to focus on the life cycle of a product, from the planning stage to manufacturing and disposal, as well as its use. In addition, it is also important to work toward building a sustainable society in which resources used for products are not wasted but used more effectively.

  Mr. Inoue began his presentation by introducing "Toyota's Basic Approach to Achieving Carbon Neutrality," followed by "Vehicle Initiatives" and "Initiatives for Building a Sustainable Society.” Toyota believes that providing "Sustainable & Practical" products and services that are tailored to local needs in each region is the most important factor in achieving carbon neutrality and building a recycling-oriented society. At the same time, Mr. Inoue stated that it is not something that Toyota can do alone, and that he would like to work together with everyone to accelerate the efforts.
