Social Initiatives

Societies Full of Smiles

Sakichi Toyoda, the founder of the Toyota Group, wished for people to smile, and his desires continue to be expressed in our present-day activities: at Toyota, we do everything in our power to contribute to the creation of prosperous towns and societies, to put a smile on the faces of as many people as possible. In order to enrich the lives of communities, we are first of all contributing to society through car-manufacturing; we are also engaged in a variety of activities aimed at realizing a society in which all people can value each other and find happiness.

NEW: Measures to protect the Human Rights of Foreign Workers
Participation in the "Japan Platform for Migrant Workers towards Responsible and Inclusive Society"

Toyota will participate in the "Japan Platform for Migrant Workers towards Responsible and Inclusive Society" established by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
This platform aims to realize a sustainable society through the protection of the human rights of foreign workers and the improvement of their working and living environments.

Toyota, as stated in this platform's code of conduct, recognizes that there are obligations to protect the human rights of foreign workers, and to support in the development of appropriate working and living conditions throughout the supply chain.
We expect that collaboration with our platform partners will have a positive impact on the supply chain.

Toyota will continue its efforts towards the realization of decent work in its direct and indirect operations.

Contributing to Society through Sports Supporting the independence of athletes with intellectual disabilities

The mission of the Special Olympics is to continually provide opportunities for athletes with intellectual disabilities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and smile, and share their gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other athletes, and the community.

The Special Olympics hosts year-round tournaments and competitions at which athletes with intellectual disabilities can demonstrate the fruit of their training in Olympic-style sports. The fact that the Special Olympics is a plural noun indicates that, rather than having a single designated event, people from around the world continuously participate in a range of activities.

At Toyota, we endorse these activities, and it is our intention to contribute to the realization of a society in which we can all live together.
