International Webinar: Does the Japanese car industry have a future?
The accelerating global transition away from internal combustion engines and the economic risk to Japan
The automotive industry is in no way protected from the global need to decarbonise.
Strict CO2 emission regulations have been issued in the EU and other countries around the world and bans on the sale of new gasoline and diesel vehicles are gradually coming into effect. On 14 July 2021, the European Commission announced it would ban the sale of hybrid vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) equipped with engines as well as gasoline and diesel vehicles – this move sent shockwaves throughout the automotive industry.

In light of such recent developments this webinar will examine questions such as:

  • What is the position of Japanese industry relative to global trends? 
  • Is the Japanese automotive industry prepared to survive a rapid global shift away from internal combustion engines (ICEs)?
  • What are the economic risks to Japan from this rapid transition?

  • Chair, Meryam Omi, Head of Sustainability and Responsible Investment Strategy, Legal & General Investment Management
