To achieve carbon neutrality in Mazda factories around the world by 2035, Mazda continues to work closely with its partners and focuses on three areas of activity: (1) energy conservation, (2) the relocation of renewables and (3) the establishment for CO2-neutral. fuel for domestic transport.
For the first area of operation, Mazda wants to make an effort to save energy during automotive manufacturing, which produces large amounts of CO2. For example, Mazda aims to reduce heat energy through the creation of low-temperature healing colors and to improve energy conversion efficiency through the improvement of processing technology.
With regard to the second area of activity, the conversion of renewable energy, Mazda recognizes the importance of not only taking action towards corporate carbon dependence, but also contributing to the growth of the domestic economy where its industries are located. . Mazda will actively participate in the efforts of the Neutral Carbon Power Sub-Sub-Committee in the Chugoku area, which aims to increase and expand the demand and supply of carbon-free electricity across the region, respectively. Mazda also focuses on a variety of carbon emissions, such as low-carbon / carbon-free energy production in its factories and the purchase of electricity from renewable energy suppliers.
With regard to the introduction of CO2-neutral fuels, the third area of activity, Mazda’s activities focus, among other things, on the use of CO2-neutral fuels for domestic transportation. This is being done in partnership with the Hiroshima Automotive Sector-Academia-Government Cooperation Council, which promotes the use of biofuels for the next generation.
In addition, Mazda will enhance the experience gained from programs launched in Japan and use it as a basis for implementing the most appropriate approach for any facility outside of Japan. With these efforts, Mazda aims to take action towards the major challenge of having its entire unbalanced carbon supply chain by 2050.
