Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) successfully sourced 87% of electricity from the renewable source of energy for its operations in Bidadi facility. This is a part of the ‘Global Environmental Challenge’ 2050 in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This contributes more than 51,000 tons of Co2 reduction.
With a key focus on its energy challenge, Toyota is swiftly moving from non-renewable to renewable sources of energy across its business operations. As electricity consumption is one of the major sources of energy in the manufacturing sector, this is a welcome move. TKM is providing its eco commitment with continuous improvements in remarkable green energy sourcing trends year-on-year. Toyota has improved the renewable source of energy consumption up to 87% from 38% back in 2016.
Mr. Masakazu Yoshimura, Managing Director – Toyota Kirloskar Motor also adds that they are proud to have achieved 100% for energy requirements in the month of Oct 2018. In addition to these efforts, TKM has also devised strategies to reduce Co2 emissions. This is possible through energy “Consumption Reduction” and “Conversion Efficiency”. Under this approach, TKM aims to improve operational efficiency by transforming energy from one form to another form. Continuous improvements contribute effectively towards maximization of green energy adoption at TKM’s manufacturing plant.
Toyota is also challenging the goal of ZERO CO₂ emissions by 2050. From fuel-efficient vehicle to developing ever better eco techniques & approaches, TKM focuses on environmentally sustainable solutions in each of its business operations and every single vehicle that is manufactured in the plant facility.
