Toyota GB’s Environmental Policy is a formal expression of how we can go about achieving the aims we present in the Toyota CSR Policy, Toyota Challenge 2050 and TGB 5 Year Environmental Action Plan. Renewed in 2017, it is the foundation stone for the way we manage environmental matters throughout our business.
The policy includes our pledge to reduce emissions at every stage of a vehicle’s lifecycle, to cut waste and the amount of natural resources we use and to protect and enhance biodiversity in order to operate in harmony with nature. This is supported by our commitment to continuous improvement in environmental performance, energy usage and compliance with legal standards. We also seek to share our experience and encourage others to be aware of environmental issues and find effective ways of dealing with them.
