Climate Lobbying Overview: The Japan Industrial Vehicles Association (JIVA) appears to have a limited direct engagement with climate policy in Japan.

Top-line Messaging on Climate Policy: From its Low Carbon Action Plan published on the website in 2018, JIVA appears to be concerned with reducing GHG emissions within the sector although it is unclear if they support IPCC demanded global emissions reductions.

Engagement with Climate-Related Regulations: Although JIVA have participated in the voluntary low carbon action plan led by Keidanren in 2018, InfluenceMap has not been able to find any recent evidence on JPMA’s positions towards, or engagement with, climate change regulation.

Positioning on Energy Transition: From the Low Carbon Action Plan on its website, published 2018, JIVA appears to generally support the transition of energy mix, including increasing hydrogen produced from biomass and wind power. On its Environmental statement on the website, first published in 2003 and still accessible in 2021, JIVA appears to be generally supporting electrification of transport as well as use of natural gas to reduce CO2 emission from transport without a clear timeline. In 2019, the Chair of JIVA appear to support the electrification and fuel cell (hydrogen) use in transportation including in construction vehicles. In 2021, JIVA attended a METI automotive working group meeting where they appear to support hydrogen vehicles over electrification, suggesting the cost of batteries are too costly.

Industry Association Governance: JIVA appears to have disclosed its board and company memberships. InfluenceMap has found very limited evidence on their positions towards, or engagement with, climate change policy. JIVA lacks a dedicated, clearly identifiable disclosure of its climate-relevant policy positions and lobbying activities.
