Welcome to the Data Center. Here you will find our environmental action plan targets, as well as data related to our environmental performance in the areas of Complaints and Violations, Fuel Economy, Vehicle CO2 Emissions, VOC Emissions, Energy Consumption, Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Operations, Waste Minimization, and Water Use.

Following the links provided with each data chart will take you to the relevant section of this report, where you can find additional information.

FY2012 Targets and Results
About This Chart:In this report, we describe progress against one-year targets set by operations in the following key performance areas: compliance, air emissions (VOCs), energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, waste minimization and water use. These targets are part of our environmental action plan (EAP). We are working to align key performance indicators across all North American business functions so that we can set more coordinated targets in our next EAP. Find This Chart
Complaints and Non-Compliance
About This Chart:Our North American manufacturing plants had zero violations and zero complaints in fiscal year 2012. Our Canadian logistics sites achieved their 14th year with no dangerous goods violations. Our U.S. sales and logistics company received one violation for an undeclared shipment of aerosol insect repellent (a hazardous material) from a regional sales office. The violation did not result in harm to people or the environment. Short-term countermeasures have been instituted at the regional and area offices to help prevent a recurrence, and we are in the process of implementing long-term shipping and handling process enhancements.

Cabadian Car Company Average Fuel Consumption, based on GHG Emission Regulation
Canadian Truck Company Average Fuel Consumption, based on GHG Emission Regulation
About This Chart:Fuel economy is the distance a vehicle can be driven on a certain amount of fuel, measured in the United States as miles per gallon (mpg). Fuel consumption is the quantity of fuel burned over a defined distance, and in Canada is measured as liters of fuel burned per 100 kilometers traveled (L/100 km). Toyota has been performing better than the required U.S. Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards and Canadian Car Company Average Fuel Consumption (CAFC) targets for both passenger cars and light trucks, and better than the industry average. In the United States, Toyota offers the most fuel-efficient fleet of any full-line manufacturer, while in Canada, we maintain the most fuel-efficient passenger car fleet. Find This Chart
Annual CO2 per Kilometer, Toyota U.S. Fleet
Annual CO2 per Kilometer, Toyota Canadian Fleet
About This Chart:The amount of fuel burned in a vehicle is directly related to emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas: The more fuel burned, the more CO2 emitted. CO2 emissions from Toyota's new vehicles are below that of the industry average in both the U.S. and Canada, for cars and light-duty trucks. Find This Chart
VOC Emissions
About This Chart:Toyota's North American plants measure grams VOCs emitted per square meter of vehicle surface area coated (g/m2). We missed our fiscal year target to reduce VOC emissions to 13.9 g/m2. But over the last decade we have reduced VOC emissions a total of 61 percent, from 35.0 to 13.7 g/m2. Find This Chart
Energy Consumption
About This Chart:Energy consumption refers to the amount of electricity and natural gas used to power our facilities. Toyota's North American manufacturing facilities set a target to improve energy efficiency to 7.28 MMBtus per vehicle produced. We achieved this target, thanks to kaizens implemented at a number of our plants. Find This Chart
Manufacturing CO2 Emissions
About This Chart:Energy use at Toyota's assembly plants is our main source of GHG emissions. Our fiscal year 2012 target was to reduce GHG emissions from energy consumption at our North American manufacturing plants to 0.80 metric tons CO2 per vehicle produced. This target is in line with our energy consumption target. We surpassed this target and achieved 0.78 metric tons CO2 per vehicle produced. Find This Chart
GHG Inventory Results
About This Chart:Toyota's North American GHG inventory measures GHG emissions from the consumption of electricity and natural gas at plants, logistics sites and owned and leased office space, as well as from fuel consumption by in-house trucking operations and third-party carriers, employee commuting and business travel. The methodology used to calculate emissions is based on The GHG Protocol® developed by the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. Find This Chart
Nonsaleable Waste
About This Chart:Non-saleable waste is waste that we pay to dispose (such as by incineration, landfill or converted to energy). We set a target to reduce non-saleable waste at our manufacturing plants to 17.80 kilograms per vehicle, a two percent reduction from fiscal year 2011 levels. The primary reason for missing the target is that we performed a number of "spring cleaning" and plant refurbishment activities during planned non-production times last year. These cleaning events normally would have happened over the course of a longer time period, but we took advantage of the non-production times to complete these activities early. Find This Chart
Water Use
About This Chart:Toyota's assembly plants are our biggest users of water. Our sales and logistics sites use water primarily for landscaping and sanitation; these volumes are insignificant compared to the volume of water used for cooling and painting at our assembly plants. Our manufacturing plants set a target to reduce water usage to 0.92 kilogallons per vehicle in fiscal year 2012. We exceeded this target and reduced water usage by two percent, to 0.90 kilogallons per vehicle. Find This Chart
