CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Based on Toyota’s founding principle of contributing to society by making automobiles, we have been striving to the sustainable growth of society.
We set environment, traffic safety, and education as the three global priority fields for our initiatives, in addition to making social contributions through our main business.
We also hold social, cultural and other activities according to the social needs on each country or region, utilizing our resources of technology and expertise, etc.
In addition, we focus on volunteering and passing on automotive and manufacturing cultures to the next generation in order to enrich the lives of communities.
