Basic Policy on Sustainability
While striving to sincerely meet the needs and expectations of all stakeholders under our corporate vision, Mazda aims for sustainable growth as a company through our global business activities. We are determined to contribute to the sustainable development of society through efforts to resolve various social issues by making the most of our strengths.
Through environmental conservation initiatives, we aim to prevent global warming, realize a sound material-cycle society, and create a sustainable future in which people and vehicles coexist with a bountiful, beautiful earth.
Respecting diverse talents and values, Mazda understands that individuals working together each play an active role in their own way. This leads to innovation in products and services that offer true driving pleasure and emotional enrichment to our customers.
We will realize vehicles and a society where all people, wherever they live, can enjoy unrestricted mobility that offers safety and peace of mind and contributes to enriching lives and the sustainable development of local communities.
