Toyota Named Greenest Automaker
January 9th, 2018
Last month Toyota announced that Newsweek had named Toyota “Best in Industry Global” in the automobiles category of their annual Newsweek Green Rankings – recognizing Toyota for its record of sustainability achievements and for its eco-sensitive hybrid and fuel cell vehicles.
Not only was Toyota named the worlds greenest automaker, but Newsweek again named Toyota one of the world’s greenest companies, ranking it 16th among the Global 500 greenest companies – ahead of Apple, Starbucks and Nike
Newsweek’s Newsweek Green Rankings is issued by Newsweek In partnership with Corporate Knights and HIP Investor. Using eight metrics to measure environmental performance of publicly traded companies, the ranking scores companies against their industry peers on each metric, including energy, water and waste levels.
Commenting on the prestigious award Jim Lentz, chief executive officer, Toyota Motor North America noted “Toyota is proud to be recognized by Newsweek as the world’s top green automaker and as a leader among global companies. We are continually working to develop and improve technologies for our operations and vehicles. Our aim is to reduce the impact on the environment, while maintaining affordability for our customers, and position our company as an industry leader in sustainable mobility.”
