New Meaning to Environmental Accountability
Toyota's parent company, Toyota Industries Corporation, has imparted an exceptional company values towards environmental management within Toyota.

Environmental accountability is a key feature of corporate decision making at Toyota and they are proud to be the first and only manufacturer to provide UL-listed, EPA- and CARB-certified Compressed Natural Gas powered lift trucks. Yet one more reason they remain a leader within the industry.
In 2006, Toyota introduced the 8-Series line. The 8-Series signifies both Toyota's innovation and leadership in the industry. It features an exclusive emission system that surpasses Federal EPA emission principles, and also meets California's more elaborate 2010 emission standards.

Toyota's lift vehicles offer improved output, visibility, ergonomics and durability, and most importantly, the industry's leading safety technology. The company's System of Active Stability, also known as "SAS", helps decrease the risk of mishaps and accidental injuries, in addition to increasing productivity levels while minimizing the potential for product and equipment damage.
System Active Stability is able to perceive conditions that could lead to lateral instability and potential lateral overturn. When any of these conditions have been detected, the SAS will immediately engage the Swing Lock Cylinder to re-stabilize the rear axle. This adjusts the lift truck's stability trajectory from triangular in shape to rectangular, offering a major increase in stability which substantially reduces the likelihood of a mishap from a lateral overturn. The Active Mast Function Controller or the Active Control Rear Stabilizer also assists to prevent injuries or accidents while adding stability.
SAS was first launched to the market on the 7-Series internal combustion models in 1999 and subsequently catapulted Toyota into the industry leader for safety. Ever since then, SAS have been built-in to the majority of Toyota's internal combustion machines. It is standard gear on the latest 8-Series. There are more than 100,000 SAS-equipped lift vehicles in action, exceeding 450 million hours combined. The increased population of SAS-equipped trucks in the field, along with mandatory operator training, overturn fatalities across all brands have decreased by 13.6% since 1999. Additionally, there has been an overall 35.5% drop in industry wide collisions, loss of control, falls and tip overs from a lift vehicle for the same period.
Toyota's uncompromising values extend far beyond the machinery itself. The company believes in providing widespread Operator Safety Training programs to help customers satisfy and exceed OSHA standard 1910.178. Training services, videos and an assortment of resources, covering a wide scope of matters-from personal safety, to OSHA regulations, to surface and cargo conditions, are available through the seller network.
Toyota has sustained a permanent existence in the United States ever since its first sale. In 2009, Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing, created its 350,000th lift truck. This fact is demonstrated by the statistic that 99% of Toyota lift trucks sold in America now are built in the United States.
