Toyota joins Audubon in conservation corporate-NGO partnership
The Audubon Society, a US based environmental conservation group, received its largest grant ever, $20 million, from Toyota, to fund conservation projects, train environmental leaders and boost volunteerism.
The carmaker use this partnership to engage its workers and business partners in order to promote conservation through the new TogetherGreen program.
“Toyota employees have already been energized by participation in volunteer activities at Audubon’s Mitchell Lake Center in San Antonio, Texas,” Patricia Salas Pineda Toyota Motor North America’s group vice president, said in a statement. Up to 200 future green leaders could receive training to combat tomorrow’s conservation challenges, and dozens of projects each year will receive funding to conserve water, land or energy. Also, the interactive TogetherGreen website encourages people of all ages to take action and become involved.
