Disclosure based on TCFD Recommendations

- Assessing the risk/opportunity impact of climate change on our business -

Toyota Industries Corporation (President: Akira Onishi; "Toyota Industries") has disclosed its climate-related information based on recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)*1. The Company declared its support for the TCFD and its recommendations in December 2019.

For the purpose of this disclosure, we identified risks and opportunities arising from climate change that will affect our mainstay Material Handling Equipment Business, based on the time line of the Group's management vision, "2030 Vision", and our long-term environmental vision, "The Environmental Vision 2050". We then conducted analysis based on different scenarios, including a below 2°C scenario*2, to assess impacts.

We will continue to strengthen our efforts to address climate change and enhance disclosure of related information to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.
