Commitment to the Environment

Respect for the Planet

Simply stated, this is Toyota's commitment to the environment. We challenge ourselves to minimize environmental impacts at all stages of the vehicle life cycle: in research and development, manufacturing, logistics and sales. We look at our own operations as well as those of key business partners - suppliers and dealerships. And, we support environmental programs and initiatives that strengthen communities.

Our success comes only by engaging the talent and passion of our employees, who believe we can always do better. This conviction is rooted in the Toyota Way, our corporate philosophy that promotes continuous improvement. The result is a drive to design and produce more efficient and cleaner-emitting cars, to structure our operations so as to tread more lightly on the earth, and to enrich the lives of people in our communities. These aspirations are part of a long-term view of sustainable growth that shows respect for the planet at every turn.

We invite you to explore the many aspects of our commitment to the environment here, in our 2012 North American Environmental Report.
