Every Step Counts - Toyota Releases its 2020 North American Environmental Report

·3 min read

TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2020 /CNW/ - Toyota endeavors to help address major environmental issues facing the global community, such as climate change, water scarcity, resource depletion and habitat loss. To minimize environmental impact across its business and maximize positive outcomes, Toyota Motor North America (TMNA) has focused its 2020 environmental sustainability efforts on five key areas – carbon, water, materials, biodiversity and outreach.

This year's North American Environmental Report highlights include:

  • Waste Reduction and Recycling: At Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada (TMMC), team members developed a method for recycling the plastic resin waste used to mold front and rear bumpers by melting and returning the plastic resin, known as TSOP-7 to its original form without any degradation in quality. This process, which is regenerative by design, demonstrates a circular economy and has ensured that 100 percent of the scrap bumper material that leaves TMMC comes back to TMMC.

  • Reduced absolute greenhouse gas emissions by nine percent in Fiscal Year 2020 compared to Fiscal Year 2019. This improvement is attributed to energy efficiency improvements, investments in renewable energy and changes in production volumes and model mix.

  • New electrified product launches including the RAV4 Prime Plug-In Hybrid, Sienna Hybrid and Venza Hybrid. In keeping with our aim to offer an electrified version of our entire lineup by around 2025.

"At Toyota, it's imperative that we do our part to offer more sustainable solutions to our customers, while identifying ways to reduce our own impact on the environment - from infrastructure, to manufacturing, and beyond," said Stephen Beatty, Vice President, Corporate at Toyota Canada. "It's not enough to talk the talk – so we're very proud to 'walk the walk' alongside our valuable partners across Canada."

Toyota's North American environmental efforts are anchored to Toyota's Environmental Challenge 2050* and demonstrate respect for the planet by managing priority issues specific to Canada, the United States and Mexico, and engaging in outreach by promoting awareness, developing strategic partnerships and sharing know-how with business partners and other stakeholders to create positive change.

*Unveiled in September 2015, Toyota's Environmental Challenge 2050 consists of six goals that seek to make a game-changing contribution to some of the critical environmental issues facing the world today, including climate change, water scarcity, resource depletion, and species and habitat loss. Challenge 2050 was developed by Toyota Motor Corporation and applies to all Toyota affiliates globally.
