HYBRID DRIVE

Lexus Hybrid Drive: Intelligently combining a petrol engine with an electric motor.

360° APPROACH

360 approach

LEXUS' ENVIRONMENTAL EFFORTS HAVE GROWN OUT OF A GENUINE RESPECT AND CONCERN FOR THE EARTH'S ENVIRONMENT. WORK THROUGH THE 4-STEP PROCESS TO LEARN HOW LEXUS REDUCES ITS NEGATIVE IMPACT ON THE WORLD AROUND IT

AIM: ZERO EMISSIONS

At Lexus we believe it is our responsibility to lead the industry’s response to the environmental challenge. We believe that environmental sustainability is the single biggest challenge facing our industry and our society this century. Our response affects not only our products but every aspect of our business and every person in it.

Guided by a clear vision of sustainable mobility, we are:

  • Pioneering ground-breaking environmental technologies such as hybrid cars
  • Reducing the environmental impact of all our operations
  • Minimising the natural resources we use in manufacture and maximising recycling and reuse
  • Working with local communities to improve the quality of the environment

We call this our 360° approach to environmental leadership. We strive to achieve zero emissions, with zero waste across every part of our business. We believe that given the time and skills - and through Kaizen (the Japanese word for ‘continuous improvement’) - this is possible. We believe that the growth and success of Lexus depend on it.

STEP ONE

PRODUCT AND DESIGN DEVELOPMENT

TO ACHIEVE LOWER ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO PLAN AND MEASURE PROGRESS. SO WE UTILISE 'LIFE CYCLE THINKING', A COMPREHENSIVE PROCESS OF CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT WHICH TAKES INTO ACCOUNT ALL OF THE RESOURCES CONSUMED AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH PRESSURES ASSOCIATED WITH OUR PRODUCTS.

We are pioneering the use of high-recovery materials, and researching and using parts that are easy to recycle at the end of their usable life to help easy recycling and recovery. Even the least visible parts of a Lexus are designed with this in mind: recycled bumpers are being used to make trim for the luggage compartment and recycled, shredded soundproofing material is used for the silencer behind the dashboard.

Car door trims are now made with the stem of kenaf – a member of the hibiscus family – rather than the woodchips previously used.

Kenaf absorbs between two and five times as much CO2 than other plants and is mixed with old waste bumpers from car repair shops to make door trim that is lighter, has better sound-proofing and uses material that doesn’t deplete forests.

WE HAVE DEVELOPED INFINITELY RECYCLABLE PLASTIC - USED IN ALL OUR VEHICLES AND NOW AVAILABLE TO ALL CAR MANUFACTURERS.

STEP TWO - PRODUCTION

STEP THREE - LOGISTICS

LEXUS' ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS RANGE FROM THE GATHERING AND TRANSPORTING OF RAW MATERIALS TO THE PROCESSING AND ASSEMBLY OF VEHICLE PARTS, AND FROM THE PROCESSES AT OUR CENTRE SHOWROOMS TO THE HANDLING OF MATERIALS AT THE END OF A VEHICLE'S LIFE

However we have managed to reduce our logistics miles by 3,057 miles a year, which has enabled a saving of 1,020 tonnes of CO2. This has been achieved by planning our transport routes carefully and by doubling the payload per truck.

STEP FOUR - RECYCLING END OF LIFE VEHICLES

THE END OF LIFE VEHICLE DIRECTIVE SEEKS TO PREVENT AND LIMIT WASTE, IMPROVE REUSE, RECYCLING AND THE RECOVERY OF END OF LIFE VEHICLES

step4

Lexus endorses the Directive's requirements and as part of the implementation has introduced a policy of free take-back for all qualifying Lexus vehicles.

At Lexus we work on a global scale to minimise the impact of our operations on the environment. In choosing a business partner for End of Life Vehicle recovery and recycling, it was essential that the highest standards were demonstrated, ensuring Lexus owners are given a responsible, reliable and efficient service for the final disposal of their vehicles.

Working alongside our recycling partner, Autogreen, we are encouraging our customers to recycle responsibly, so plastics, engine oils and metals can be handled and reused cleanly and safely. In return, you will be rewarded with a guaranteed price for your old vehicle with a BACS transfer direct to your bank account from Autogreen.
