Toyota Motor is targeting carbon-neutral manufacturing plants by 2035

Toyota Motor aims to turn all vehicle manufacturing plants around the world into carbon-neutral facilities over the next 14 years. Masamichi Okada, Toyota’s chief production officer, made the announcement, saying the team had just set a goal a few weeks ago.

Toyota will adopt new technologies and require suppliers to also maintain emission standards while producing Japanese automaker vehicle parts.

Toyota Motor said earlier that by 2050 it will only produce carbon-neutral electric vehicles. With the intention of boosting electric vehicles, Toyota wants to get only the EV portfolio for the next four years. Earlier in April, Toyota unveiled a new BZ4X electric crossover to showcase the brand’s new generation EV wallet.

Okada said Toyota will initially aim to change the way paint, coating and casting work is done at its facilities to reduce carbon emissions. He said. “Thus, processes with high CO2 generation will be aimed at minimizing or even eliminating CO2 emissions. Once these areas are identified, we will focus our resources and we believe this will help. Shorten the time until carbon neutrality is achieved.” Okada added that Toyota will also focus on renewable energy at the facility, with local and external energy sources.

Toyota has already partnered with Suzuki globally to produce electric trains and electric vehicles. The Japanese automaker believes that electric vehicles will play a bigger role when it comes to reducing emissions in the future. By 2025, it plans to expand to 70 electrified models worldwide. This future programming will have 15 dedicated BEVs.

“We will build on our experience and the knowledge we have gained over the years,” Okada said. In addition to the new BZ4X on display, Toyota is also working on other electric vehicles such as the BZ1, BZ2, BZ2X, BZ3, BZ4 and BZ5.
