1. What are some of the other ways we’ve reduced water usage?

How else have we reduced our water usage?

Toyota’s European Head Office has strived to reduce water usage. To reach our goals we have taken several actions through the years. In 2015 we installed additional water meters to improve the monitoring process, quickly identify deviations from normal consumption, and following-up on any issues. We also linked the meters to the central Building Management System for improved supervision of water use. The same year we installed waterless urinals, followed in 2016 by upgrading the dishwashers to more water-efficient models.

Most recently we installed a system to split rainwater from domestic water. Now, instead of both types of water ending up in the city sewage system, the rainwater is recuperated for sanitary use. This saves 2,400 m³ of sanitary water per year.
