Toyota has released pro-climate advertising campaigns, has made top-line statements in support for the Paris Agreement and limiting global warming to 2°C but does not appear to be supporting a range of climate policy and regulation directly related to the automotive sector. In 2018, Toyota appears to have supported the US Administrations efforts to roll back on US CAFE and GHG emission vehicle standards, having called on US President to re-evaluate the rules in 2017, as well as appearing to advocate directly to policy makers for their stringency to be weakened. Despite promoting hydrogen fuel cell and hybrid vehicle technology, in 2017-18 Toyota has opposed measures to phase out of conventional vehicles in India and the UK, whilst also appearing unsupportive of zero emission vehicle (ZEV) mandates in China and the EU. Toyota also maintains memberships to a range of automotive trade groups that have continued to actively oppose the development of ambitious climate policy for the sector globally in 2018, including the Japanese Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA), the US Auto Alliance and the European Automobile Manufactureres Association (ACEA). A senior Toyota executive is also vice-chairman of the powerful cross-sector trade group Keidanren, which has actively opposed policies proposed to help Japan reach the emission reductions indicated by the Paris Agreement whilst promoting a coal-based energy future for Japan.

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

In this section, we depict graphically the relationships the corporation has with trade associations, federations, advocacy groups and other third parties who may be acting on their behalf to influence climate change policy. Each of the columns above represents one relationship the corporation appears to have with such a third party. In these columns, the top, dark section represents the strength of the relationship the corporation has with the influencer. For example if a corporation's senior executive also held a key role in the trade association, we would deem this to be a strong relationship and it would be on the far left of the chart above, with the weaker ones to the right. Click on these grey shaded upper sections for details of these relationships. The middle section contains a link to the organization score details of the influencer concerned, so you can see the details of its climate change policy influence. Click on the middle sections for for details of the trade associations. The lower section contains the organization score of that influencer, the lower the more negatively it is influencing climate policy.
