The Environmental Protection Agency awarded Toyota with its ninth consecutive ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award.

Online PR News – 12-April-2013 – St. Louis, MO – Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (TEMA) has just received its ninth consecutive ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This ninth successive award represents a record in the automotive industry, as no other automaker that produces vehicles in the U.S. has won this many ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year awards, reports a representative from Newbold Toyota.

In total, TEMA has 13 manufacturing facilities located in the United States. All 13 have been incredibly successful in achieving superior energy efficiency throughout the past decade. In the last ten years, all 13 North American plants have reduced energy consumption for each vehicle by 15%. This energy consumption reduction has saved enough energy to power 27,000 average American households for up to 10 years. This has also resulted in $370 million in savings for the vehicle, engine, and parts plants.

“Toyota is honored to be recognized with our ninth ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellent Award. It gives us greater motivation to identify ways to minimize our impact on the environment while helping our bottom line,” said Robin Haugen, general manager of production engineering, Plant and Environmental Engineering, Toyota. “Our team members’ commitment to reducing energy and water consumption across our operations demonstrates that when good ideas are shared, great things can happen.”

Eight North American plants in particular created a 10% decrease in energy intensity just last summer. For this, they were again recognized by the EPA during the ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry program. Collectively, energy intensity was reduced by almost 24% from the baseline.
