North American sustainability planning, strategies and actions are driven by an Environmental Action Plan, a five-year roadmap that helps achieve incremental progress towards Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050.


Let’s face it: there’s only one planet Earth. That’s why we focus on environmentally sustainable solutions in everything we do and every vehicle we make. From our North American manufacturing plants to the more than 1 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles assembled in the U.S., we are advancing toward a brighter tomorrow.


In 2015, we announced the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050 — a set of six visionary challenges intended to create a net positive impact on the planet and society. These challenges are guiding our efforts to build a better, smarter, more sustainable future. In North America, Toyota’s environmental activities are designed around four important focus areas that drive environmental plans and actions – carbon, water, materials and biodiversity.
