Environment, Technology & Employment

Toyota is committed to manufacture technically advanced and environment friendly products. Our plant at Bidadi surrounded by a greenbelt, meets high environmental standards and has also obtained ISO 14001 certification on 26th April 2001.

Toyota has always believed that the best way to serve society is by providing automobiles that will not only make people happy, but will also be environment friendly. Wastewater at TKM is collected and purified to a level that can be used for fish ponds and rice fields.

To realise high quality vehicle production at reasonable prices, Toyota seeks the best balance between human resources and advanced robot technology. As technology constantly evolves and employees improve themselves through daily work and training programs, Toyota's production process improves.

 

For a Greener Tomorrow

 

TKM aims to create corporate eco-citizens. We follow the approach of Learn, Perform and Drive to develop the Eco-Mind of our employees.

In addition to creating awareness, we also involve our employees physically in afforestation, environment month promotion and other eco CSR activities aimed to bring a sense of ownership towards the environment.

   

The core idea of Eco-Kaizen is to continuously strive for improvement and development at workplace to minimize its impact on the environment. It not only includes improvement through innovative technology, but also step-bystep planning and optimisation of resources that results towards creating a sustainable plant and a low carbon society.

   

Green Supply Chain

Toyota Kirloskar Motor believes in bringing Cycle of Nature and Cycle of Industry together to live in harmony. Along with the growth of the company, we understand that sustaining and improving the present environment is equally important and our prime responsibility. As a part of this, TKM involves with all its stakeholders from the Design to Disposal process of the product manufactured.

Supply Chain plays a vital role in this journey towards building a Sustainable & eco friendly company. All parts and raw materials required for manufacturing an automobile are sourced from various suppliers based at different geographical locations. The environment footprint of manufacturing and transportation of parts and raw materials will always be significant. Hence to achieve environment sustainability, we need to develop a Green Supply Chain, which will have a positive impact on the environment. Realizing this, Toyota has brought out the Green Purchasing Guidelines.

 

Toyota Green Purchasing Guidelines (GPG):

“Green Purchasing Guidelines” is a Toyota Global initiative which serves as a direction to enhance supplier’s environment activities. Based on Global guidelines, TKM launched its Green Purchasing Guidelines in 2007 to its suppliers.

It is revised every 5 years to enhance the supplier eco initiatives.

During the environment month Celebration 2013 TKM launched its New Green Purchasing Guidelines.
