Toyota appears have mixed position towards climate change regulation. In the run up to a review of US CAFE automotive efficiency regulations, Toyota U.S. CEO Jim Lutz appears to have cautioned against increasing the ambition of the standards and has increased production of less fuel efficient cars. Toyota also in 2012 took legal action legal action in Mexico against fuel economy mandates. Toyota appears to support transitioning towards a low carbon economy, pledging to all but eliminate petrol and diesel engines from its fleet by 2050 which, CEO Akio Toyoda has stated, will help lead to the “creation of a hydrogen society.” Elsewhere however, Mr Toyoda has suggested that the future of transportation could include gasoline and diesel, and ultimately comes down to customer choice, the market and regulatory variation. Toyota is a leading member of the Japan Business Federation, the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) and the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) all trade associations opposing multiple strands of EU climate regulations and policy.

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.
