Environmental Policy at Brighton Toyota

Brighton Toyota are making the switch to hybrid electric for a brighter future with focus on our next generations to come.

Our goal by 2020 is to reduce overall emissions as a dealership and continue to use sustainable and renewable processes day-to-day, to ensure our vehicles are producing minimal co2 emissions and that we provide education programs to our staff and local community on the importance of making these changes.

Green wall in the showroom

“According to recent studies, indoor environments may be as much as 10 times more polluted than outdoor environments. The plants used in green walls can absorb and clean pollutants from the air; through photosynthesis, they take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen.” [Source]

Brighton Toyota’s showroom now features a large 9 square meter green wall with the goal of brightening our showroom space while offering benefits as mentioned above to our guests, staff and the environment.
