In line with the Five Main Principles of Toyoda and the Guiding Principles at Toyota, we aim to grow with the community as we have since our founding, however these days the automobile industry and the social environment are both changing greatly. To grow sustainably within this changing world, Toyota identifies sustainability issues based on the importance for our business and the expectations of our stakeholders in order to be a trusted company.
In defining sustainability issues, we are studying the business environment Toyota is acting according to internationally-agreed standards, such as the Paris Agreement*1, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights*2, and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs*3), as well as expert advice. Thus we define issues to improve corporate value or strengthening management foundation and risk management.
Toyota checks progress on these issues periodically by discussing them in the Sustainability Meeting and the ESG Committee.
