Toyota cares about our environment
Toyota has had a long history about caring for the environment and going green before it was the “cool” thing to do. You can drive with peace of mind when you purchase a new Toyota hybrid near Charlotte. That’s because Toyota has implemented a ton of ways to be eco-friendly from vehicle production to the actual vehicles themselves. Newsweek continues to rank Toyota as one of the worlds greenest companies, and we are ranked number one in the automobile category! We are ranked so highly because of our record for sustainability and for the eco-sensitive N Charlotte Toyota hybrid and fuel cell vehicles we produce. Here are some of the ways Toyota is doing their part:
- Upgraded to LED lights
We are upgrading the lights in 8 of our North American manufacturing plants to LED lighting. This will save around 20,000 megawatts a year and help reduce our CO2 emissions by 17,000 metric tons annually.
- New water saving projects
New programs implemented at four of the North American manufacturing plants have saved around 43.2 million gallons of water last year. This is about as much water that 394 families around Charlotte would use in a year.
- Reducing our landfill wastes
In 2016, only one percent of waste from our North American facilities were disposed of in landfills. The other waste was either sent to a waste-to-energy facility, composted, reused, or recycled. And 92 percent of the construction waste that was made from Toyota’s new research and development campus in York, Michigan was recycled. That’s around 461 tons of materials that were saved from going into a landfill.
- Reduced our packaging waste
We worked with PakFab to help reuse and recycle packaging that has become obsolete because of vehicle model changes. Eight of our manufacturing plants have already changed to this new system and its projected to reduced our waste by 13 million pounds every year!
