Respecting the planet is embedded in the Toyota Global Vision, which is encapsulated as: in everything we do, demonstrate consideration of the planet. Persistently research, develop, and promote eco-friendly systems and solutions
As an independent, family-owned Western Australian Toyota dealership and aligned with the global vision, we also seek ways to implement solutions that positively impact our planet today and a better planet for the next generation.
Some of the initiatives we have implemented within our operations include:
ENERGY AND GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS
New Town Toyota and Toyota Australia proactively look for opportunities to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In our recent renovation, New Town Toyota added a significant solar panel system, reducing energy consumption. In addition, Toyota Australia uses natural gas and electricity at its production site at Altona and at non-production sites around Australia. The company monitors and reports on its energy use and greenhouse emissions, continually seeking improvement opportunities.
Both New Town Toyota and Toyota Australia focus on reducing waste and making the best use of resources. These include raw materials used in the vehicle manufacturing process and water and paper used across the dealership. Wastes include both production and non-production general, prescribed, and packaging waste.
BEYOND ZERO FUTURE
Beyond Zero is Toyota’s vision to reach beyond carbon neutrality with its products, services, and operations by 2050 and find new ways to impact our planet positively. Through the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050, team members across every region of the world are working to put Toyota’s global vision of Respect for the Planet into action. Challenge 2050 unites us all with a common purpose: to be more than just good stewards of the environment and to create positive changes beyond our facility boundaries.
