Toyota partners the Singapore Environment Council to recognise efforts of young environmental journalists in Asia

Toyota is pleased to partner the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) for the 2015 Asian Environmental Journalism Awards (AEJA). As a sponsor for the AEJA, Toyota will present the SEC-Toyota Young Environmental Journalist of the Year Award to recognise the contributions made by outstanding young environmental journalists across Asia.

“Toyota advocates the cause for environmental protection and aligns strongly with the Singapore Environment Council’s vision of recognising the outstanding body of journalistic work contributed by young journalists. The SEC-Toyota Young Environmental Journalist of the Year Award was chosen as it represents Toyota’s commitment, not only to the environment, but also towards educating the youth about environmental issues. For this cause, we have been running CSR programmes in the region including the Toyota Eco Youth Programme” said Kaye Lim, General Manager, Public Affairs Department, Toyota.

“As Toyota is a leading car manufacturer with a strong emphasis on environmentally-friendly practices, we are happy to have their support to raise awareness of regional environmental issues, inspire and educate society and nurture a culture that is aligned with sustainable development concepts,” said Mr Edwin Seah, Executive Director, SEC.

Toyota currently undertakes a wide range of CSR programs in Asia covering the domains of education, environment, road safety, arts and culture, community services, health and sports. For over 50 years, Toyota has been partnering with local communities and their governments as they have achieved economic progress. Some of the environmental initiatives undertaken by Toyota recently include the Toyota Adopt-A-Forest Project, Stop Global Warming Project, and the Toyota School Environment Program.
