The Story of Sakichi Toyoda
Sakichi Toyoda, the founder of Toyota Industries Corporation, possessed a strong ambition to contribute to society from his days as a youth. He had devoted his 63-year-long life to invention.
Based on its brief that manufacturing starts with nurturing excellent personal, Toyota Industries regards human resources development as one of its most important management issues, and thus actively provides environmental education programs and carries out enlightenment activities for its employees. Toyota industries has clarified the environmental-related knowledge and capabilities required for each job position and rank, and accordingly, is building an environmental education program. Specifically, we offer rank-based environmental education, introductory courses for environmental management and environmental audits as well as environmental product education.
In addition to these programs, we organize lectures on the environment by people from outside the company and run special features in our in-house newsletter to raise environmental awareness among employees.
