In the modern world, so many issues, including energy shortage, resource shortage, global warming, loss of biodiversity, food and water shortages, poverty, discrimination, unemployment, and aging populations, are prevalent and continue to spread globally. Against this backdrop, corporations must work to help solve these issues as members of the regions where they operate. In its Global Vision, Toyota articulates its intention to contribute to "enriching lives of communities." Toyota hopes to continue working with people in local communities to achieve this goal. Toyota's efforts will include improving product performance, making cars that are environmentally considerate throughout their entire lifecycle, creating a comfortable next-generation society together with local stakeholders by utilizing the technologies Toyota currently possesses in other fields, and enriching lives of communities through social contribution activities.
