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.


Environmental sustainability planning, strategies and actions are driven by a North American Environmental Action Plan. We are breaking the Challenge 2050 vision down into incremental, five-year action plans. This is how the company is working to drive change - step by step to achieve carbon neutrality and a net positive environmental impact at a global level.


Toyota has announced the Seventh Environmental Action Plan, a new five-year action plan to bring us closer to achieving the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050. Over the next five years, Toyota’s plan includes:



The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of interlinked global objectives designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." These goals, established in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly, are intended to be achieved by the year 2030.


The Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050 aligns with the Sustainable Development Goals and reflects Toyota's commitment to work with stakeholders across society in support of a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable future.





We know we can't get there alone. Our goals require new ideas, new technology and new ways of thinking. It will also take working with committed partners to help us find solutions along the way.
