Making a real change at a local level

Toyota knows that growing in harmony with the local environment and society is the only way that our business can be sustainable. As one of the world’s largest automobile companies, with operations in more than 170 countries, our aim is to become a good local corporate citizen that is admired by every one of the communities in which we operate. To achieve this goal, Toyota provides financial and practical contributions to projects that aim to improve the lives and sustainability of our communities.

In Europe, Toyota has a two-tier approach to our social contribution activities. The Toyota Fund for Europe (TFfE) operates at a pan-European level and supports projects that operate across a number of different European countries or regions. TFfE supports projects in the fields where Toyota can join the force with our stakeholders to tackle the issues using our best competence: the environment, road safety and technical education.

The second tier of assistance is offered by our local Toyota companies for projects that are aimed at the regional and national level. The criteria for this assistance are set by the local company so that they can respond directly to the specific problems and needs of their communities.

How can we help you?

Financial support is just part of the solution. At both the European and local levels we try to utilise the skills and resources of Toyota and our staff to make a real difference to your project. This involvement can take many forms but may include training, knowledge transfer, materials or even human resources.

We are always looking for new projects to support. See About us and Apply for funding to find out how we can assist your project.
