Under the slogan of "Achieving Tomorrow’s Standards" Toyota City is taking on the challenge of realising an "SDGs Future City Toyota" where everyone can enjoy life in a spiritually rich way. The "Tomorrow’s Standards" that Toyota City is aiming for refers to things that will be taken for granted in the future, when we will be approaching a sustainable society. Its future-oriented concept is truly a back-casting idea. Toyota City is promoting advanced efforts to realise this goal. Toyota has received various designations from the Japanese government, including "Eco-Model City" and "SDGs Future City," and has promoted advanced environmental and energy-related initiatives with the cooperation of government financial support and deregulation. Our goal is to create a comfortable, low-carbon lifestyle that is easy, comfortable and without waste. And since the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, Toyota City's efforts have clearly taken the SDGs into account, and the philosophy of sustainable urban development has become part of the foundation of the city's policy. The city’s vision for the future is "Connect and achieve a fun city to live in, Toyota". We aim to create a society in which every citizen can enjoy their lives by deepening connections between people, people and regions, people and nature, and by creating diverse values and possibilities while recognising and making the most of one another's efforts. Another characteristic of Toyota City is that all stakeholders, including citizens, private companies and other organisations, are connecting and cooperating with one another to take concrete actions toward achieving the SDGs.
