Toyota’s ‘Empact’ Addresses Sustainability in Underserved Communities

Toyota North America ranked No. 4 on The Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2022.


Toyota announced the launch of “Empact,” a new vision to aid the transition of underserved communities to a future of electrified mobility.

Empact was inspired by the combination of “environmental impact” and “empowering action.” Together, the project represents the company’s mission to move toward carbon neutrality and to design a more equitable and inclusive deployment strategy among underserved communities.

With Empact, Toyota will focus on three main areas: access to charging, providing affordable mobility solutions and reducing carbon emissions.

“Our vision will be our guide as we work with local and state officials to identify communities where Empact might help address issues related to EV charging access and affordability,” said Christopher Reynolds, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, Corporate Resources, Toyota Motor North America. “Providing EV charging solutions will empower consumers to make decisions that will not only have a positive impact on the environment but accelerate the adoption of electrified vehicles as well.”
