PLANO, Texas, Dec. 15, 2020 /PRNewsCentre/ — Toyota endeavors to help address major environmental issues facing the global community, such as climate change, water scarcity, resource depletion and habitat loss. To minimize environmental impact across its business and maximize positive outcomes, Toyota Motor North America (TMNA) has focused its 2020 environmental sustainability efforts on five key areas – carbon, water, materials, biodiversity and outreach.

"We have a responsibility to help achieve a net positive impact on the environment and to promote a culture of improvement inside and outside our organization," said Kevin Butt, director of environmental sustainability at Toyota Motor North America. "These activities help scale up conservation efforts and drive educational awareness across our operations, partners and our communities."
Toyota’s North American environmental efforts are anchored to Toyota’s Environmental Challenge 2050* and demonstrate respect for the planet by managing priority issues speciï¬c to the United States, Canada and Mexico and engaging in outreach by promoting awareness, developing strategic partnerships and sharing know-how with business partners and other stakeholders to create positive change.
*Unveiled in September 2015, Toyota’s Environmental Challenge 2050 consists of six goals that seek to make a game-changing contribution to some of the critical environmental issues facing the world today, including climate change, water scarcity, resource depletion, and species and habitat loss.
