Third place in Environmental Management Survey 2019 corporate ranking by Nikkei, Inc.

In the corporate ranking of the 22st “Environmental Management Survey,” which assesses companies’ efforts in improving both environmental measures and operational efficiency, Toyoda Gosei was ranked third in the manufacturing category. This survey by the Nikkei Shimbun has been conducted every year since 1997. Companies’ environmental management is comprehensively analyzed, and they are evaluated for their progress in improving both environmental measures, such as greenhouse gas and waste reduction, and operational efficiency. The survey this year included leading publicly traded and privately held companies (1,731 manufacturing companies, 1,318 non-manufacturing companies).

Third place in the transportation equipment sector in the WWF’s ranking of measures to combat global warming

Toyoda Gosei was ranked third in the transportation equipment sector of the “Corporate Anti-Global Warming Measures Ranking” conducted by WWF Japan (2015). WWF Japan ranks each company’s efforts using 21 indicators, including long-term vision, units of reduction, energy-saving targets, renewable energy targets, difficulty of total reduction targets, understanding and disclosure of emissions volumes of entire LC, and third-party assessments. Toyoda Gosei was recognized for its steady progress in the use of renewable energy, including the introduction of quantitative targets, an area that holds the key to energy savings and anti-global warming measures.
