Toyota, Honda and Nissan get Greenpeace thumbs-down for decarbonisation


According to a Greenpeace ranking of Japanese automakers, Toyota, Honda and Nissan made the bottom of the top ten when it comes to decarbonisation. The statement comes after an analysis of their supply chain and sales records. Pure “zero-emission vehicles made up less than 1% of their sales and noted slow progress in supply chain decarbonisation,” so the organisation. “The time for hybrids, I think, has finished,” said Daniel Read, climate and energy campaigner at Greenpeace Japan.

Has Mr Read considered the massive carbon footprint of manufacturing lithium carbonate from spodumene, a process akin to making cement, brine production also requiring the use of CO2 intensive lime, and the transportation of spodumene concentrate from Australia to China and the coal China uses to make Li2CO3? Zero emissions - at tailpipe only. Plus the highly unethical cobalt supply chain.
