Toyota Motor Europe announced it reached 100% renewable electricity use across all its European operations and facilities in 2019. Toyota’s European operations include 9 manufacturing plants, 14 Parts Depots Centres, 7 Vehicle Logistics Centres, 29 National Marketing & Sales companies, TME Head Office & its branch offices, and Toyota Technical Centre, which jointly had a total electricity demand of around 500 GWh.

The 100% renewable electricity usage could be achieved across all operations through a mix of:
Encouraging renewable electricity production on Toyota sites in collaboration with local stakeholders (TPCE solar panels, TMUK solar panels, TMMF solar wall, Zeebrugge windmill, solar panels at Toyota Logistics Centre Madrid)
Purchasing of renewable electricity where available
Purchasing of European Certificates for EU countries as regulated by EU Directive 2009/28/EC
Purchasing of I-REC (“International-Renewable Electricity Certificate”) for non-EU countries as recognized by the international I-REC standard

Achieving 100% renewable electricity is contributing to the company’s targets for Challenge 2 (Lifecycle Zero CO2 Emissions) and Challenge 3 (Manufacturing Plant Zero CO2 Emissions), which aim to eliminate CO2 emissions of the entire vehicle lifecycle, including supporting operations and manufacturing plants.
