Toyota's Environmental Focus

Protecting The Environment

Toyota has a rich history of environmental stewardship that stems from the Toyota Industries Corporation (TICO) corporate doctrine. No other forklift manufacturer, and not many companies in general, can match Toyota’s history of protecting the environment while advancing the economy. For example, Toyota has made environmental accounting a process that evaluates the effectiveness of environmental activities from the perspective of cost a key aspect of corporate decision-making. Toyota remains the first and only manufacturer to offer UL-listed, EPA and CARB-certified Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) powered forklifts.

Toyota Environmental Policies

1. Toyota will conduct corporate activities that are considerate of the environment from development through design, production, use and disposal, to provide clean and safe products.

2. Strive to intensify environmental management, including that of consolidated subsidiaries, for the further advancement of corporate activities that support environmental protection.

3. Promote social contribution, information disclosure and knowledge through wide-ranging cooperation with society on environmental protection, with the ultimate aim of achieving a better global environment.


Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

Toyota’s culture of shared environmental responsibility has enabled the company’s manufacturing facility to implement 1,700 energy-saving measures over the past five years resulting in a CO2 emission reduction of 120,000 tons—that’s roughly equivalent to planting 45,000 trees.

Commitment to Environmental Responsibility

“Toyota is committed to environmental responsibility, and it’s a role we take very seriously. Beyond pushing the bounds of product innovation, one of Toyota’s goals is to support environmentally appropriate and socially beneficial initiatives contributing to a cleaner environment.”

Brett Wood, CEO, Toyota Material Handling North America

New Toyota Models

The 8-Series signifies both Toyota’s leadership and innovation. It features an exclusive emission system that not only surpasses federal EPA emission standards, but also meets California’s more stringent emission standards.

With the 8-Series, action speaks louder than words—Toyota has developed a product that not only substantially reduces the use of environmentally harmful substances in the manufacturing process, but also increases the amount of recyclable parts used.
