To introduce carbon neutral fuels at its domestic facilities, Mazda says it will be switching the fuel used to power vehicles for transport within the company from diesel to a next-generation biofuel. In addition, it will also switch fuel for Hiroshima plant’s power source from coal to liquid ammonia.
Takeshi Mukai, Director and Senior Managing Executive said: “Mazda will move forward with carbon neutral initiatives in line with our plans to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions and the prevention of global warming across all of our processes including manufacturing transportation, usage, and recycling/disposal, as we believe that such efforts are a core responsibility of automotive manufacturers.”
For factories outside Japan, Mazda will be investigating approaches for each region, using the carbon neutral initiatives established in Japan as a reference model.
