Toyota will be recognized for its promotion of energy management among manufacturing industries and for continued support of the ENERGY STAR program.

For more than two decades, American consumers and businesses have continued to save energy and protect the environment through the Energy Star program. In 2012 alone, Americans, with the help of Energy Star, saved $24 billion on their energy bills and prevented greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 41 million vehicles. To date, more than 1.3 million new homes and nearly 20,000 office buildings, schools, and hospitals have earned the Energy Star. Since 2000, more than four billion Energy Star certified products have been sold.
