New Meaning to Environmental Responsibility
Toyota Industries Corporation, as the parent company, has instilled a rich company doctrine of environmental stewardship in Toyota. Not many other corporations and no other lift truck manufacturer can match Toyota's history of caring for the natural environment while concurrently encouraging the economy. Environmental responsibility is an important feature of corporate decision making at Toyota and they are proud to be the first and only producer to offer UL-listed, EPA- and CARB-certified Compressed Natural Gas powered lift vehicles. Yet an added reason they remain a leader within the industry.

It features an exclusive emission system that surpasses Federal EPA emission values, and also meets California's more intricate 2010 emission standards. The finished product is a lift truck that produces 70% fewer smog forming emissions than the current Federal standards tolerate.
Furthermore in 2006, Toyota established a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, furthering their commitment to the environment. Greater than 57,000 trees have been planted in regional parks and national forests damaged by ecological causes such as fires, as a product of this partnership. 10,500 seedlings have also been circulated through Toyota Industrial Equipment's system of dealers to non-profit organizations and local customers to help sustain communities all over the U.S.
Toyota's lift vehicles provide better output, visibility, ergonomics and durability, and most notably, the industry's leading safety technology. The company's System of Active Stability, often known as "SAS", helps reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, in addition to increasing productivity levels while minimizing the likelihood of product and equipment damage.
System Active Stability senses several conditions that could lead to lateral instability and potential lateral overturn. When one of those conditions are detected, SAS immediately engages the Swing Lock Cylinder to stabilize the rear axle. This changes the lift truck's stability footprint from triangular in shape to rectangular, providing a major increase in stability which substantially reduces the likelihood of an accident from a lateral overturn. The Active Mast Function Controller or the Active Control Rear Stabilizer also assists to avoid injuries or accidents while adding stability.
The SAS systems were initially adopted on the 7-Series internal combustion lift trucks which were put on the market in 1999. These systems helped push Toyota into the lead for industry safety standards. Now, SAS is utilized on almost every new internal combustion models and is standard equipment for the new 8-Series. There are more than 100,000 SAS-equipped lift vehicles in operation, exceeding 450 million hours combined. The increased population of SAS-equipped trucks in the field, along with obligatory operator instruction, overturn fatalities across all brands have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Also, there have been an overall 35.5% reduction in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and tip overs from a lift vehicle for the same period.

The company believes in offering extensive Operator Safety Training courses to help clients meet and exceed OSHA standard 1910.178.
