Much attention is being paid to the serious challenges faced by the auto industry today, in Canada and around the world. But at Toyota, even as we tackle these immediate challenges, we are cognizant that automakers – in cooperation with their various stakeholders – must address long-term issues as well.
One of these issues is environmental sustainability – a concern, and a set of challenges, that won’t go away simply because the current economic situation is demanding everyone’s attention. Almost all of the industry’s long-term issues require addressing environmental considerations. These include:
The ongoing need for innovative vehicle designs to meet market demands;
Fuel efficiency and emissions performance;
The impact of manufacturing processes;
The disposal of vehicles when it is time to retire them;
Society’s evolving ideas about where and how we live and work, both as we deal with the current economic climate and after we come through it.
These issues raise many questions. In our own pursuit of answers to these questions, Toyota has always maintained that it’s important to share our progress and our goals. In that spirit, attached is the eighth annual Toyota North America Environment Report. As you will discover in this report, we remain committed to investing in research and development, new manufacturing processes, and other initiatives to ensure that Toyota maintains its global environmental leadership, and continues to deliver new ways to make things better where we live, work and play.
