PLANO, Texas, Dec. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Toyota Motor North America announced the availability of its 2023 North American Environmental Sustainability Report. Covering Toyota’s activities in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, the report has been published annually since 2002. The 2023 report highlights Toyota’s environmental strategy, shows progress on contributions to the UN SDGs, reviews the company’s progress toward its four priority issues (Carbon, Water, Materials, and Biodiversity), provides data that is organized in an environmental metrics table, and, finally, offers a Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) content index with disclosures in reference to GRI standards.

This year’s report was updated and streamlined to include additional data metrics tables to help stakeholders better understand the company’s progress on its environmental sustainability goals across its operations and product lines in North America. 2023 was an important year as it marked the halfway point to the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda. The UN SDGs form the foundation of the 2030 Agenda, which is a 15-year plan to transform our world for the better.
“The 2023 report serves as a reflection of our current state, showing that we have made progress in some important and key areas, like Carbon and Biodiversity, and we expect things to accelerate as we move into the 2nd half of the 2030 Agenda,” said Kevin Butt, director of Environmental Sustainability, Toyota Motor North America. “Achieving our goals is no easy task and will require even greater collaboration and commitment from our team members, suppliers, dealers and other partners – and we are committed to taking on the challenge.”
The 2023 report is prefaced with a letter to the reader introducing them to or reminding them of Toyota’s stated mission to “produce happiness for all.” After explaining how that mission is linked to the UN SDGs as well as Toyota’s vision of “mobility for all,” the letter then highlights key SDGs where Toyota has realized significant contributions in alignment with its four priority issues, including Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation, Goal 7: Affordable and Clean Energy, Goal 12: Responsible Production and Consumption, Goal 13: Climate Action, and Goal 15: Life on Land.
Some of the highlights of the 2023 North America Environmental Sustainability Report include:
