sustainability

To go beyond zero environmental impact and achieve a net positive impact

Toyota has set itself six challenges. All these challenges, whether in climate change or resource and water recycling, are beset with difficulties, however we are committed to continuing toward the year 2050 with steady initiatives in order to realize sustainable development
together with society.

Challenge 1

New vechile zero co2 emmisions challenge

By owning a Toyota you would be contributing to the reduction of vehicle CO2 emissions by 90% in 2050 as opposed to 2010. You will help us promote the development of next-generation vehicles and further accelerate the spread of these vehicles. The all-new Yaris is improved and lowered emissions output of 134g/km*.

Challenge 2

life cycle zero co2 emissions challenge

You are lending a helping hand to Toyota’s efforts to reduce to zero not only CO2 emissions produced in travelling and manufacturing, but all CO2 emissions including the process of materials production, disposal and recycling of vehicles. The all-new Yaris is an environmentally conscious vehicle with a Euro 4 Engine, recyclable parts and an improved and lowered emissions output of 134g/km*. When driving the all-new Yaris, you can rest assured that every kilometre has been accounted for.

Challenge 3

plant zero co2 emissions challenge

You uphold the two main pillars of our strategy to achieve zero CO2 emissions at our plants which are:

1) Developing and introducing low-CO2 technologies with ongoing kaizen.
2) Adopting renewable energy sources and utilizing hydrogen energy.

Challenge 4

challenge of minimizing and optimizing water usage

In Automobile manufacturing, we use water in painting, forging and other processes. Therefore, even a small reduction of its impact on the water environments is important. We have two measures to achieve this, which are:

1) Comprehensive reduction of the amount of water used.
2) Comprehensive purification of the water and returning it to the earth.

Challenge 5

challenge of establishing a recycling-based society and systems

You have contributed to our 40 years on the challenge of resource recycling. Going forward, by rolling out to the world the technology and systems evolved in Japan, we will all continue working on the challenge of establishing a recycling-based society.

Challenge 6

challenge of establishing a future society in harmony with nature

Here at Toyota we have engaged in planting trees at our plants and environmental conservation activities in our surrounding areas. To establish a society where humans and nature coexist in harmony, we are promoting several activities to connect regions, the world and the future.
