TOYOTA has initiated a number of corporate activities to make their commitment to the environment, such as the world's first mass-production and sales of hybrid vehicles, the construction of an environmental management system (including the ISO 14001 certification), and active disclosure of environment-related information. In recognition of various achievements in environmental protection and improvement, TOYOTA received the Global 500 Award from the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in 1999.
The Toyota Environmental Activities Grant Program was inaugurated in 2000, commemorating TOYOTA's receipt of the prestigious Global 500 Award, to further demonstrate TOYOTA's responsibility for the environment and sustainable development. Since then, as part of its corporate philanthropic activities, TOYOTA has been conducting the Grant Program to support environmental activities implemented by NPOs and other non-profit private groups.
