£11m Toyota centre awarded excellent BREEAM status

Toyota has good green credentials with its new centre in Enfield. A new centre for Toyota has been awarded excellent level BREEAM accreditation, the first the car manufacturer has achieved in the UK.

The energy efficient building, which was constructed in Enfield, cost £11 million, but is designed to help reduce the impact the company has on the environment.

Simon Boxall, of Toyota, said: "We are immensely proud that our new centre has obtained the BREEAM Excellent certification, it is the highest recognition for what we have achieved at Enfield in terms of reducing our environmental footprint."

Extensive use of natural light, a bio-mass boiler and a rainwater collection system all add to the green credentials of the facility.

Constant monitoring of the amount of energy consumed helps to make sure that the building is meeting its targets and being as efficient as possible.

Founded in 1937 by Kiichiro Toyoda, the Japanese car company now employs in excess of 300,000 people worldwide.ADNFCR-3216-ID-801275975-ADNFCR
