Creating a greener future in the car industry is no easy feat, but the team at Toyota are a committed bunch.
In 2015, Toyota Motor Corporation published six global environmental goals aiming to create a sustainable society by 2050. Locally, Toyota hopes to play a proactive role in New Zealand’s environmental efforts and deliver low carbon/net positive impacts by this time.
Here at Miles Toyota, we take our commitment to creating a better environment very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that we are Enviro-Mark Diamond Certified. This is the highest tier achievable in this third-party environmental grading system, and we try to raise the green bar with each new initiative we take on.
Toyota’s national retail network is the only one in the country to attain Enviro-Mark certification. The Diamond level exceeds the requirements of ISO 14001, one of the world’s most recognised environmental standards.
Toyota New Zealand’s Chief Executive Officer (June 2019) Alistair Davis, said the Enviro-Mark programme is an important part of Toyotas commitment to sustainable business practices.
“As the brand that has nearly a quarter of all vehicles on New Zealand’s roads, Toyota takes its responsibilities to customers and the environment very seriously,” says Davis.
“Our retail team attaining Enviro-Mark Diamond certification is a significant achievement and demonstrates their desire to protect New Zealand’s environment.”
We’re constantly improving, and 2019 has seen big leaps in our green efforts. One of our biggest strides ahead has been employing our very own Environmental Coordinator, Deb Smithson. Deb’s primary focus is helping Miles Toyota maintain its Diamond Certification, and to identify weaknesses and solutions for our other practices. She’s already implemented some positive changes, with many more on the way.
