Toyota Industries Group formulated its 'Ideal state in 2050' in March 2016 and, based on this, consolidated its activities for the five years from 2016 to 2020 in its 'Sixth Environmental Action Plan', which it is currently implementing.
The Group is driving the following initiatives based on the above plan:
1. Reduction of CO2 emissions by 10% by FY2021 compared to FY2006 (Toyota Industries)
2. Reduction of the CO2 basic unit for emission by 26% by FY2021 compared to FY2006 (Global)
3. Understanding and reducing risks related to water resources at each production site
In the future, Toyota Industries Corporation will continue to respond to climate change and tackle water resource conservation as a key issue. Furthermore, the company will contribute to the realisation of a sustainable society through global environmental conservation activities.
