Abstract: In October 2015, Toyota announced the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050. We have been striving to reduce the environmental burden attributed to automobiles to as close to zero as possible, while developing measures to contribute positively to the earth and its societies with the aim of achieving a sustainable society.
This presentation provides an update on Toyota’s efforts in North America and globally. To achieve our vision, we will need support from business partners, researchers, governmental agencies and even competitors. This is an exciting time to participate in making a better future.
