Newsweek named Toyota one of the world’s greenest companies, ranking number 35 in the Global 500 and number 2 in autos. Toyota jumped 57 spots since 2014!
Toyota was recognized for their commitment to sustainable practices and their development of green vehicles. Their green initiatives saved over 93 million gallons of water in North America and allowed them to reduce energy use by 22% in North American manufacturing plants.
This earth-friendly company has been at the forefront of developing energy efficient technologies, and Newsweek ranked Toyota so high due in part to the upcoming release of the Mirai hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, which releases only water vapor through its tailpipe.
“We are proud to be recognized as one of the world’s greenest companies,” said Jim Lentz, Toyota Motor North America chief executive officer. “Through continuous improvement, our global teams have made great strides in reducing our environmental impact. From hybrids to fuel cells, Toyota is at the forefront of developing energy efficient technologies. We are deeply committed to contributing to the environment, our communities, and to leading the future of sustainable mobility.”
