ABOUT THIS REPORT
Toyota Motor North America, Inc. (TMNA) is headquartered in Plano, Texas, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC). TMC is headquartered in Japan and produces an annual environmental report, which covers TMC initiatives as well as activities of consolidated subsidiaries and affiliates around the world. TMNA data is rolled up into this report.
TMNA has been producing an annual regional environmental report covering activities in the United States, Canada and Mexico since 2002. This 2020 report covers TMNA activities under the Toyota and Lexus brands during fiscal year 2020 (April 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020) and product model years 2019 to 2021. Data presented with different dates are clearly indicated.
In 2018, TMNA discontinued operations at the Bodine Aluminum plant in St. Louis, Missouri. Data for this plant was included in the 2019 report, but is not included this year. Production at Toyota’s new assembly plant in Apaseo el Grande, Guanajuato, Mexico, began in late 2019. We will include this plant in TMNA’s consolidated environmental data (energy, GHG, water, waste, VOCs and compliance) starting next year, after it has had a full year of operation.
We listened to your comments and suggestions about last year's report and considered them in improving this report. We appreciate your feedback. You may participate in a survey found here.
