      The company commits to protect "natural forest and other ecosystems". It is not clear if all natural ecosystems are covered by this commitment. It is also not clear if the policy applies to all suppliers as the company states that supply compliant with this policy will be "preferred".

    • 55. Commitment to zero deforestation?

      This indicator is disabled as the company does not operate rubber plantations.

    • Y
      1 / 1

      56. Commitment to zero deforestation applies to all suppliers?

    • P
      0.5 / 1

      65. Implementing a landscape or jurisdictional level approach?

      The company makes this commitment through the GPSNR Policy Framework. Partial points have therefore been awarded on the basis of the company's alignment with GPSNR Policy Components that do not fully meet the SPOTT indicator criteria. However, a public commitment could not be found.

      87. Commitment to no planting on peat of any depth applies to all suppliers?

      The company makes this commitment through the GPSNR Policy Framework. Full points have therefore been awarded on the basis of the company's alignment with GPSNR Policy Components that fully meet the SPOTT indicator criteria. However, the company's own reporting does not refer to a definition of peat or state no planting on peat of any depth.

    • P
      0.5 / 1

      102. GHG emissions intensity?

      The company reports GHG intensity as 1.40 t-CO2/million yen in 2021. As the intensity is based on sales and not per product (i.e. per tyre) full points cannot be awarded.
