Toyota Earns Keystone Leadership in Environment Award

Ever since Toyota took strides in environmentally-friendly innovation by revealing the Prius to the world and popularizing the hybrid class, the brand has been making efforts to be more eco-conscious in every way, from employing “greener” production processes to making their vehicles more efficient. The company’s efforts have been officially recognized by Keystone Policy Center, who recently handed Toyota the Leadership in Environment Award.

Toyota Motor North America and General Motors both recently partnered with the Wildlife Habitat Council in order to expand habitats for North American wildlife, improve biodiversity near manufacturing locations, and support the health of bees and other important pollinators. The 23rd annual Keystone Policy Center awards dinner recognized their efforts with the title, though Toyota’s collaboration with GM and the Wildlife Habitat Council is only the latest in a long line of eco-friendly advances from the company.

Today, the WHC has recognized 1,000 acres of land across nine Toyota manufacturing sites as certified “Wildlife at Work” locations. The first was Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Kentucky in 2008 when the partnership first began, but soon, many other Toyota plants across the nation followed. The Wildlife at Work locations, as well as the Keystone Leadership in Environment Award, attest to Toyota’s tradition of caring for the world around us.
