LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT (LCA)
With our Eco-Vehicle Assessment System (Eco-VAS) we go beyond the usual LCA by evaluating the environmental impact of our vehicles right from resource extraction through to production, use, recycling and disposal. We have been carrying out Life Cycle Assessments of our vehicles since 1997. Every new generation vehicle achieves a better environmental performance than its predecessor. Toyota’s LCA methodology was reviewed and approved by the independent body of TÜV Rheinland and has been certified to comply with ISO 14040/14044 standards.
