Toyota Motor Sales (TMS) U.S.A. announced that it has achieved zero waste status at its headquarters in Torrance, Calif. Toyota attributes the accomplishment to its “Think Green!” program, which seeks creative ways to deal with waste produced by the company.
"Think Green! reduces the impact TMS headquarters has on our environment by creating resources from waste," said Bob Pitts, TMS group vice president of administrative services, in a press release. "Toyota Motor Sales is committed to its Global Earth Charter and will continue to expand initiatives to protect our environment."
According to Toyota, 80 percent of the material discarded by the 5,000 employees at TMS headquarters is recycled. The remaining material is used as fuel to generate electricity.
