Yesterday, Toyota issued a press release announcing that it recently earned an "Energy Star Partner of the Year" award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This is the 12th year in a row that the EPA has recognized Toyota for implementing processes that help reduce total energy consumption.

Since 2002, Toyota's efforts have resulted in savings of more than 16 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity. For perspective, this number is equivalent to powering nearly one million average American homes for a whole year.

“Being named an Energy Star Partner of the Year is a tremendous honor,” said Toyota’s Plant and Environmental Engineering Group General Manager Robin Haugen. “Earning that honor twelve years in a row is testament to the dedication of our team members to reduce our carbon footprint and become an environmental leader in our industry.”
