Yamaha Motor Co. announced that it will be display a prototype hydrogen-powered outboard at the Miami International Boat Show, which is scheduled for Feb. 14-18.

Yamaha said in a statement that it has set a companywide environmental goal to achieve carbon neutrality in Scope 3 emissions by 2050. It will continue to promote, research and develop sustainability-related technologies.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, “Scope 3 emissions are the result of activities from assets not owned or controlled by the reporting organization, but that the organization indirectly affects in its value chain.”

To achieve carbon-neutrality with marine products, Yamaha is promoting a multidirectional approach, looking to new energy sources and technologies. For example, last year, the company announced a partnership with Toyota to develop a hydrogen-fueled V-8 engine.
