To establish a recycling-based society, we seek to minimize our resource consumption and to implement production activities that reduce the amount of unwanted substances.
In the Fifth Plan, through activities that engage our entire supply chain, we achieved eco-efficiency targets for waste generation volume both on a nonconsolidated basis and for Toyota Industries and its consolidated subsidiaries in Japan. In the Sixth Plan, we will encourage effective utilization of resources, including internal reuse of waste, to attain the designated waste generation volume target per unit of production.
