“A major car model change every five years allows me to keep up to date in the latest technology, equipment, and building controls and always provides a challenge.”- Team Member, Engineering
When it comes to the environment, actions speak louder than words. So, every Team Member is required to understand our Toyota Environmental Policy and to put its principles to practice. To keep the environment at the forefront of thought and action, we created the acronym ECOPAK: Environmental Awareness, Compliance, Objectives, and Targets, Pollution Prevention, Audit, and Kaizen. All Team Members live up to ECOPAK every day. One visible sign: our plants send zero waste to landfill—everything is recycled or composted.
When you can build more than 500,000 vehicles every year, you would think there would be significant waste. Think again. In 2004, TMMC set a goal of sending zero waste to landfill—and met that goal in 2006 through comprehensive recycling, reusing, reducing and composting programs. We continue to set new environmental goals every year—raising the bar for manufacturing operations.
