FOLLOWING A REVIEW of  its environmental plan and its CO₂ emission reduction targets, Yamaha has set a new goal of aiming for carbon neutrality throughout its business, including across the life cycles of its products by 2050.

This review of the Environmental Plan 2050 resets goals for the Yamaha Motor group to aim for by 2050, as well as targets to meet by 2030 and 2035. Yamaha says it will formulate a medium-term plan every three years and advance initiatives toward these targets.

Yamaha says its basic aim in the coming years will be to further reduce the CO₂ emitted per person when using one of its products; to use efficient power sources and switch to power sources with low CO₂ emissions; and to promote the use of personal mobility with low CO₂ emissions.
