CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY SPOTLIGHT

Making the Most out of Methane

Toyota Tsusho America is a key investor in the Merced Dairy Digester Pipeline Cluster Project, a group of 15 dairy digesters that reduces dairy farm methane emissions in California.

 

In line with TAI’s Global Carbon Neutrality Goals, the project is specifically targeted to reduce methane (CH4), a greenhouse gas that is 25 times more potent at global warming than carbon dioxide CO2.

 

Toyota Tsusho continues to be a leader in large scale recycling. These activities not only support waste reduction and resource conservation, but also produce solid economic returns for our clients. We understand that addressing environmental issues is not just a business responsibility but is essential for our society’s existence.
