Yamaha aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050

By sep, 21 July 2021

Yamaha Motor has announced its latest Yamaha Motor Group Environmental Plan 2050 with the goal of carbon neutrality throughout all of its business activities. This will also include the life cycles of whatever products they're currently producing, from motorcycles to industrial robots.

Their Environmental Plan 2050 will go through a number of targets in the coming years in relation to CO2 emission reduction, particularly in 2030 and 2035. The first stages will focus on employing internationally recognised carbon offset methods before making their move to its major product categories.

According to the press release, Yamaha Motor stated, "Yamaha Motor has continuously offered personal mobility options with small environmental footprints and low CO2 emissions over the entire product life cycle, from raw material procurement and manufacturing to use and disposal. Toward realizing a carbon-neutral society in 2050, the Company will continue to offer new value by proposing new forms of mobility unique to #yamaha Motor in addition to its signature motorcycles."

We can expect to see a lot of exciting and environmental-friendly products from Yamaha in the coming years. Urban mobility won't be a major hurdle for them to conquer, but their high-performance products will most likely be more interesting. Is anyone interested in the idea of an electric-powered Yamaha YZF-R1 superbike? Let's just called it Yamaha YZE-R1 for now. Good times await us, folks.
