With our Eco-Vehicle Assessment System (Eco-VAS) we go beyond the usual LCA by evaluating the environmental impact of our vehicles right from resource extraction through to production, use, recycling and disposal. We have been carrying out Life Cycle Assessments of our vehicles since 1997. Every new generation vehicle achieves a better environmental performance than its predecessor. Toyota’s LCA methodology was reviewed and approved by the independent body of TÜV Rheinland and has been certified to comply with ISO 14040/14044 standards.
ISO 14001 is a globally recognised certificate for businesses and organisations that meet its standards for environmental management. Our ISO system supports our commitment to continual improvement in our environmental performance. Our European Head Office & Technical Centre, 14 Parts Logistics Centres and 7 Vehicle Logistics Centres are all ISO 14001 certified. In addition, all our National Marketing and Sales Companies (NMSCs) and European Manufacturing Companies (EMCs) are certified by other national certification bodies.
