Environmental Policy at Taree Toyota

Committed to the Environment

Taree Toyota and Toyota Australia are committed to the highest standard of environmental management and governance.

Toyota has an environmental management system certified to the international standard ISO 14001. Environmental strategy is set by the Environmental Committee.

Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Taree Toyota and Toyota Australia look for opportunities to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Toyota uses natural gas and electricity at its production site at Altona and at non production sites around Australia. The company monitors and reports on its energy use and greenhouse, continually looking for improvement opportunities.

Resource Usage

Taree Toyota and Toyota Australia will continue to focus on reducing waste and making the best use of resources. These include raw materials used in the vehicle manufacturing process, and water and paper used across the company. Wastes include both production and non production general waste, prescribed waste and packaging waste.

Contributing to a Low Carbon Society

Toyota Australia will develop lower emissions vehicles and work with Governments to develop appropriate standards and measures regarding vehicle emissions and pollutants.

In 2011 a Carbon Working Group was established to understand and manage the impacts of the clean energy future legislation and develop a model to ensure the financial implications of the carbon prices are considered in strategic and operational planning.

COVID-19 Update

We have put measures in place and we’re open for business.

As the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to evolve, we wanted to share with you some important information about the steps we’re taking to minimise the risk of exposure in our local community.

Our greatest priority at this time is the health and safety of all our staff members and you, our valued customers.

We’re taking extra steps to ensure our showrooms and service centres are clean and hygienic environments for everyone. These measures include increasing the frequency of cleaning and sanitisation, including high touch point areas such as handrails, counters, customer waiting areas and providing complimentary hand sanitiser in all showrooms and service centres.

We are actively following all health and travel advice issued by the Australian Government, including mandatory isolation periods for all staff members returning from international travel. We are also ensuring our staff are supported with clear health and hygiene protocol, as well as providing the information and support to all staff members who need to stay at home if they are unwell for any reason.

Here at the dealership, we remain committed to supporting all staff members and customers throughout this time. We are ready to help you.

Thank you to all our loyal customers for your continued support, and safe and happy motoring.
