Toyota dealers cut power use – save over $125,000

Toyota dealers around New Zealand have been saving power and money as part of environmental projects they have undertaken to meet Enviro-Mark Gold certification, saving more than $125,000 in the process.

Since 2008, all 64 Toyota dealers from Whangarei through to Invercargill have been part of a nationwide drive to improve resource efficiency and save on business costs.
There has been a combined nationwide saving of 11.7 percent, with consumption dropping by 795,000 kWh.

Although Toyota sales have risen by 26 percent since 2010, the increase in dealership business activity has not hindered power saving initiatives.

If the dealer network was still consuming power at 2008 levels it would be costing $127,266 more than what was paid last year, based on an average commercial electricity cost of 16 cents per kWh.

“The financial savings that accompany environmental projects is a bonus for our dealers, and should encourage other businesses to see how they can save money from improving their efficiency,” said Alistair Davis, Toyota New Zealand’s Managing Director, who is also the chairman of the Sustainable Business Council.

Toyota New Zealand is pleased to announce their commitment to the TVNZ home renovation hit series, Our First Home, for a second season.

“Following a successful debut in 2015, the multi-night series follows three new families putting everything on the line to help their children onto the property ladder. It returns to TV ONE on February 14.”

“Our First Home is a great opportunity to grow and support the best of Kiwi life,” says Toyota New Zealand General Manager of Marketing, Andrew Davis.

“Buying and renovating your first home is becoming an increasingly privileged rite of passage for young New Zealanders and we are really excited to team up with TVNZ once again to support the next round of Our First Home contestants.”

Competing as three teams of Kiwi families, parents will use their equity to buy, renovate and sell a home with their adult children.

The concept of family and supporting young Kiwis is aligned to Toyota values of working together and working hard to achieve your dreams. Being involved with Our First Home for a second season is a natural fit.
