Isuzu received highest score in Supplier Engagement Rating - Selected for the Leaderboard in two consecutive years
Isuzu Motors Limited (headquartered in Shinagawa, Tokyo; Masanori Katayama, President and Representative Director; hereinafter Isuzu) has been awarded a position on the Supplier Engagement Leaderboard, as it earned the highest score in the 2021 Supplier Engagement Rating from CDP*, a non-profit organization influential in the field of the global environment. CDP assessed more than 13,000 companies, and over 500 companies, including 105 Japanese companies were recognized as a Leaderboard.
This is the second consecutive year for Isuzu to have been selected for the Leaderboard.
Companies and organizations are assessed based on their supplier engagements in four categories of governance, targets, Scope 3 emissions, and value chain engagement. Isuzu has been included in the Leaderboard as CDP highly rated the company's initiatives in reducing CO2 emissions throughout the product lifecycle from manufacturing to disposal, managing climate change risks and making efforts to foster supplier engagement.
Isuzu announced the “Isuzu Environmental Vision 2050” in May 2020, an Isuzu Group roadmap for addressing global environmental issues over the long term and securing a prosperous and sustainable society by the year 2050.
Isuzu also has set its primary focuses on enhancing the management from ESG (Environment, Society, and Governance) perspectives as addressed in the Mid-Term Business Plan 2024, which was announced in May 2021.
We continue to make a conscious effort and integrate ESG considerations into daily business activities. By doing so, we, as a trusting partner, strive to realize a sustainable future society and contribute to supporting transportation that enriches people's lives.
