The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently conducted its Energy Star Challenge For Industry program and North American Toyota came out with a solid number of wins. A total of eight manufacturing facilities have been recognized for greatly reducing their all-together energy expenditure. From their baseline at the start of the challenge, the sites have collectively cut down their usage by nearly 24 percent.
“Thanks to the efforts of our team members, Toyota has reduced our total energy use per vehicle over the last five years as we achieved greater energy efficiency across North America,” said Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing North America Executive Vice President Steve St. Angelo. Each recognition is only issued to individual sites who are Energy Star partners. The facilities not only must comply with the EPA’s guidelines, but they must reduce their energy intensity through the program. Most recently, Toyota earned its eight Sustained Excellence Award for its North American manufacturing.
