Sustainability

We aim to be a reliable and responsible partner for your material handling operations. That’s why we offer transparency so you can rest assured we optimise your operation. Since 1 in 10 major injuries in European manufacturing happen with material handling equipment, and 80% of the accidents are caused by unsafe behaviour, we want to help you create a safe working environment. In 4 steps, from leadership to teaching safe behaviour, we aim to achieve zero accidents.

We maximise safety in your operations

1 in 10 major injuries in European manufacturing happen with material handling equipment, and 80% of the accidents are caused by unsafe behaviour. Therefore we want to help you create a safe working environment. In 4 steps, from leadership to teaching safe behaviour, we aim to achieve zero accidents.

Maximising safety of our employees

1. Governance in our own operation

"At Toyota, we aim to go beyond legal compliance, and achieve zero accidents, by implementing TICO's Safety Vision. In Italy, we reduced injury rates by 74% since 2007. Achieving OHSAS 18001 in 2014 was a milestone in creating a more active focus on safety by both employees and management"

2. Training of our employees

All our factories have a dedicated area for the Safety Dojo. There our employees are trained on risk assessment and safe material handling. And we’re expanding these trainings to all our local sales companies.

3. Taking countermeasures

"In our Ancenis factory, we reduced injury rates by 89% since FY13 by conducting frequent risk assessments followed up directly with the right countermeasures."

We minimise customers’ energy use and emissions

In line with TICO’s environmental action plan, we strive for a society with zero CO2 emissions by 2050. We achieve this by monitoring energy use, avoiding energy waste, and innovating in energy efficiency and zero carbon technology.

Energy-efficient workplace in our operations

1. Smarter factories

“With the implementation of ISO 50001 in our factory in Ferrara, Italy has reduced energy consumption by 9%. We needed to bring many people on board as we worked to obtain the ISO 50001 energy management system certification and this team effort continues to pay off."​​​​​​​

2. Low-carbon buildings

Our German headquarters are built with a 9.800m² photovoltaic system, while our premises in the Netherlands offer 31% lower energy consumption thanks to their A-rated building.

3. Smart service fleet

With over 3,000 service vans our service fleets use more energy than all our factories put together. In Toyota Material Handling UK, we installed GPS tracking on service vans. By being able to send the nearest technician available to customers every time, we reduced fuel consumption by 12%.
