How ToyotA KENTUCKY IS MAKING A BETTER PLANET
Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky, Toyota’s first wholly-owned American vehicle plant and the largest in the world, is the home of the Camry, Avalon, RAV4 Hybrid, and Lexus ES 350. It’s also home to over 6,000 Toyota team members all committed to taking care of the planet.
Toyota’s environmental activities in North America are designed around FOUR important FOCUS AREAS that drive our environmental planning, strategies and actions.
We reduce CO2 emissions from our vehicles through improved fuel efficiency and the use of hybrid technology as well as electrification. In our manufacturing plants and logistics operations, we reduce CO2 emissions through innovative projects that cut energy and fuel consumption and increase our use of renewable energy.
We find ways to conserve water, especially in our manufacturing processes. Each year, we use fewer and fewer gallons to produce a vehicle, and we’re finding new ways to recycle and reuse. We concentrate on water-stressed areas of North America, such as California, Texas and Mexico, to make a little water go a long way.
REDUCING MATERIAL WASTE
We emphasize recycling at all of our locations, from the largest manufacturing site to the smallest office. We even recycle waste when we build a new facility. Each one of our team members plays a role in making sure material stays out of the trash.
Toyota’s biodiversity efforts support the unique balance of plants, animals and ecosystems. As we plan, construct and manage our facilities across North America, we minimize the disruption of natural habitats and proactively support pollinator and native species.
Tips to help you make every day Earth Day
Reduce your Carbon Footprint
Turn off a light, consider solar for your home, change all your lights to LED and make your next vehicle a hybrid.
Turn off a faucet and make sure you take care of any leaks around the house. If you absolutely need to water your plants or lawn, make it early in the day.
UP YOUR RECYCLING GAME
Refuse, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Eliminate single-use plastics whenever possible– that means reusable water bottles and grocery bags every time!
Plant native plants and trees, especially species that attract butterflies and bees.
