    Challenge of achieving zero CO2 emissions

    Basic approach

    The Toyota Boshoku group takes on the challenge of “achieving zero CO2 emissions from all of our plants by 2050.” We will strive to reduce CO2 emissions significantly through the development of innovative production technology, the technological development of products and materials, the improvement of plants and the utilisation of renewable / next generation energy.

    Deployed 2030 target globally

    In fiscal 2019, Toyota Boshoku undertook efforts worldwide to achieve our 2030 target with a view to the medium and long term in response to global demands to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit the increase in global warming to below 2°C in accordance with the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the Paris Agreement and other protocols. We are working to make daily improvements at our plants by conserving energy, for example, as well as streamlining facilities, promoting production engineering and development with an awareness of energy consumption, raise production efficiency using the Internet of Things (IoT) and reduce the amount of energy used in production. In addition, we will prepare plans at each business entity to reduce energy consumption that factors in the use of renewable energy and also contributes to a reduction in CO2 group-wide as part of our response to climate change.

    Deployed 2030 target globally

    Energy consumption and CO2 emissions and basic unit of Toyota Boshoku and those of the Toyota Boshoku group released on our website have been independently assured by KPMG AZSA Sustainability Co., Ltd. Please see the Independent Assurance Report for more detailed information.

    Calculation of greenhouse gas emissions

    The CO2 conversion coefficients have been fixed so that voluntary improvements can be evaluated. Japanese group companies use the values provided in the following table, while the power coefficient for regions outside Japan is calculated using country data from 2000 released by the International Energy Agency (IEA) in 2013.

    Greenhouse gas emissions reflect efforts to reduce CO2 through co-generation (calculated by multiplying the amount after deducting the CO2 emission factor for all power sources from the CO2 emission factor for thermal power generation by the amount of power generated through co-generation).

    [SCOPE 3*1 (Supply Chain Management)]

    Toyota Boshoku has commenced to calculate the CO2 emission of whole Toyota Boshoku's supply chain in order to reduce the CO2 emission from our whole business activities since FY2013.

    Next, we will improve the precision of calculating method, and proceed to reduce CO2 emission after we evaluate the CO2 emission of each category in our whole business activities.

    On the below, CO2 emission from representative cars' door trims, which are calculated with reference the guideline from Ministry of the Environment and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

    Reducing CO2 emissions in logistics

    As part of our Logistic Session, we regularly convene logistics promotion meetings and through connection between plants and logistics companies work to reduce CO2 emissions in logistics and reduce pollution caused by vehicles used in distribution. In addition, the cross-organisational deployment of best practices from each plant aids in efforts to vitalise activities between plants.
    Further, we continue to participate in Toyota Group logistics and environmental liaison meetings to share the latest information and information on best practices from other companies.
