Toyoda Gosei Earns Leadership Level in the “Climate Change” and “Water Security” Sectors of CDP’s Company Survey

February 15, 2024

Kiyosu, Japan, February 15, 2024: Toyoda Gosei Co., Ltd. has earned a Leadership level1 (A−) in a survey of companies conducted by the CDP,2 an international not-for-profit environmental organization. The leadership level is in the two sectors of “Climate Change” and “Water Security.”

Toyoda Gosei has set new, higher medium- and long-term CO2 reduction targets and established an action plan for the reduction of environmental impacts. The company is steadily decreasing CO2 emissions, water usage, and waste, and actively discloses information based on the guidelines of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).3 All of this contributed to its Leadership level.

Leaving a rich earth for the future is one of Toyoda Gosei’s corporate missions, and the company is leveraging its knowledge in the rubber and plastics expertise to help bring about a decarbonized society. In August 2023 the company brought forward by two decades, from 2050 to 2030, the timing for the achievement of carbon neutrality in its production activities (Scope 1, 2). It is also accelerating efforts to reduce non-Scope 1 and 2, indirect CO2 emissions (Scope 3), by setting new targets, acquiring Science Based Targets (SBT)4 certification, and other efforts. It will continue to promote environmentally-friendly business activities in moving toward a sustainable society.

1 Four levels are set in accordance with the CDP’s assessment: Leadership level (A, A−), management level (B, B−), awareness level (C, C−), information disclosure level (D, D−).

2 A not-for-profit organization (NPO) established in 2000, operated with support from institutional investors and others in each country. It conducts surveys of companies’ environmental activities and publishes the results. Its annual information disclosure and evaluation process is widely recognized as the global standard in corporate environmental information disclosure.

3 The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures is a framework for the disclosure of financial information related to companies’ efforts or impacts with respect to climate change.

4 Greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets based on scientific evidence, consistent with the levels sought in the Paris Agreement. The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) was established by the CDP and three other international environmental NGOs with the goal of driving action for the achievement of these targets.
