Climate change continues to be one of the most pressing and complex challenges of our time and its impacts – fires, flooding, storms and drought – are leaving an indisputable impression that is seen and felt by all of us. To address this, Toyota has been innovating, continuously improving, and thinking big and boldly, all to go beyond minimizing negative impacts of climate change to help bring us closer to creating a net positive impact on the planet and society.
With a long and proud history of environmental innovation with big and bold products and initiatives that have become synonymous with environmental stewardship and conservation, Toyota remains focused on achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, with an early target to make its North American manufacturing plants carbon neutral by 2035.
Our collective future depends on clean mobility, clean air, clean water and biodiversity. In North America, Toyota’s regional strategy is focused on leading substantive progress in five core areas that will have the greatest positive impact:
- Expanding vehicle electrification
- Reducing carbon emissions
- Encouraging conservation through water stewardship
- Recycling materials
- Protecting biodiversity
