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.
When an eye to achieving a sustainable society that provides a prosperous life in harmony with the natural environment, we have devised the "Fifth Environmental Action plan" for the period from fiscal 2012 to 2016.
The "Fifth Environmental Action Plan" will promote four core themes that we have identified as its environmental priorities. These themes are considered to be essential future issues and will encompass a broad range of increasingly important environmental concerns.
(1) Constructing a low-carbon society
(2) Constructing a recycling-based society
(3) Reducing environmental risk and constructing a society in harmony with nature
(4) Promotion of environmental management

“CO2 Cancel” means to offset CO2 emissions from production activities at plant by reducing CO2 emissions through improved product efficiency on use. This concept is included as a new target in the Fifth Environmental Action Plan as one of our unique ideas on CO2 reduction.
We investigated the degree of contribution by developed product about CO2 emission improvement and established calculation formula to compensate CO2 emission at production in FY2013. Based on it, we have determined the target to achieve "CO2 Cancel" in FY2016.
Moreover, after achievement of “CO2 Cancel” we promote activity for a further high aim including the double cancellation.
