TORONTO, ONTARIO, December 15, 2016 – For Toyota, boldly shaping the future of mobility starts with striving toward reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across Canada and the United States, as released in its sixteenth annual North American Environmental Report.
Efforts that address ever-better cars, ever-better manufacturing, and enriching lives within communities, are a core part of Toyota’s commitment to the brand’s global Environmental Challenge 2050, an ambitious set of six challenges that hopes to ultimately have a net positive impact on the planet.
“Our corporate culture is rooted in continuous improvement, which means making steady progress, one step at a time, toward a bigger impact and change,” said Stephen Beatty, Chief Environmental Officer, Toyota Canada Inc. “Working closely with our dealers, partners and suppliers in Canada, we’re very proud of how we continue to reduce our environmental footprint in different ways, creating a more sustainable future.”
The report highlights annual progress made in achieving goals and targets set out in the company’s Environmental Action Plan. This initiative is a collaboration among Toyota’s North American affiliates including: Toyota Canada Inc. (TCI), Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada Inc. (TMMC), Toyota Motor North America Inc. (TMNA), Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America Inc. (TEMA), and Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc. (TMS).
It chronicles the actions taken over the past year by Toyota in Canada – and throughout the continent – in the areas of carbon, water, materials, and biodiversity, as well as outreach activities.
