We are committed to protecting and improving the environment, so we need to be sure that all aspects of our business understand what is required of them and that we work together successfully to achieve our environmental goals. As well as our own environmental plans, we of course also have to make sure we comply with environmental laws and regulations and have the right measures in place to recognise and deal with all environmental risks.
The environmental management principles we apply across our business are developed from three sources: the Toyota Earth Charter, Environmental Policy and European Environmental Action Plan. These give us a framework that helps us continually improve our performance and progress towards our environmental goals. They also support the sharing of our experience and know-how with others, to increase environmental awareness and responsibility.
