Toyota Contributes 57,000 Trees Through Arbor Day Foundation Partnership

Thursday, April 2, 2009

IRVINE, CA — Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. (TMHU), announced today that through its support of the Arbor Day Foundation, 57,000 trees will be planted in national forests and local parks damaged by fire or other natural causes by the end of 2009. This is the culmination of the company’s environmental commitment to donate one tree for every Toyota lift truck sold in 2008 and one tree for every Toyota 8-Series lift truck sold in 2007, along with planting events held with Toyota’s dealers and associates.

“Putting an emphasis on the environment always has been an integral part of our corporate philosophy, and planting trees with the help of our customers, dealers and associates is a rewarding way to make a positive impact on our future,” said Brett Wood, president of TMHU. “Through our products, manufacturing processes and community involvement, we have strived to push forward a global environmental charter. Toyota will continue to push the boundaries of developing innovative technologies and products that are not only socially responsible, but also economically viable.”

Global Environmental Charter
Since the inception of Toyota Industries Corporation’s Environmental Action Plan in 2005, the company has implemented 1,700 energy-saving measures resulting in a CO2 emission reduction of 120,000 tons.

Toyota continues to explore a range of technologies that use existing fuels and alternative energy sources in an effort to meet the evolving needs of the material handling industry today and well into the future.

These efforts include the recent North America debut, at ProMat, of the hybrid concept lift truck that draws on the hybrid technology and vehicle components available within the Toyota Group. The hybrid concept lift truck illustrates Toyota’s proven fuel- and emission-reducing technology and its application to the material-handling industry.
