Protecting the Environment

Toyota has an incredibly rich history of environmental care.  No other forklift manufacturer, nor many companies in general, can match Toyota’s history of protecting the environment while simultaneously advancing the economy.  For example, a key aspect of Toyota’s decision-making comes from an environmental accounting process that evaluates the effectiveness of environmental activities from the perspective of cost.  Additionally, Toyota remains the first and only manufacturer to offer UL-listed, EPA and CARB-certified Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) powered forklifts.

Reducing our Carbon Footprint

Toyota forklift plant worker on lineThe production of Toyota Forklifts is a process that is centered around a culturally shared environmental responsibility.  This process has enabled the company’s manufacturing facility to implement 1,700 energy-saving measures over the past five years.  As a result, Toyota Forklifts have reduced CO2 emissions by 120,000 tons, which is the equivalent to planting roughly 45,000 trees.

The Core IC Pneumatic Forklift signifies both Toyota’s leadership and innovation.  This wildly durable forklift features an exclusive emission system that not only surpasses federal EPA emission standards but also meets the state of California’s more demanding emission standards.  Actions speak louder than words, and Toyota has developed a product that not only significantly reduces the use of environmentally harmful substances in the manufacturing process, but also increases the number of recyclable parts used.
