As the Worldwide Mobility Partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, we believe that
when we move, we can achieve the impossible.


"Under this Olympic and Paralympic flag, let us reaffirm the power of sport to bring people together."


President, Toyota Motor Corporation


We are wholeheartedly committed to unleashing human potential through the power of
movement, which is why we are a proud Partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Games are the world’s biggest celebration of human movement. This is where we learn the true power of sports – that sports can challenge us, inspire us and, most importantly, unify us. And as the Worldwide Mobility Partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, we share the vision to inspire people to push onward – past their finish line, past their impossible.

In an effort to bring the promise of sports to all corners of the world, we are working with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) to help aspiring Olympians and Paralympians reach their dreams regardless of their circumstances.
