Toro launches platform to help guide sustainability strategies
Toro has launched its Sustainability Endures platform, which will strengthen the company's strategic focus on sustainability and its long-standing commitment to making a positive impact financially, socially and environmentally worldwide.
In fiscal 2019, Toro enhanced its focus on sustainability by establishing a cross-functional sustainability leadership team to further develop and implement an enterprise-wide sustainability strategy.
"Sustainability is not a new concept for The Toro Company," said Richard Olson, chairman and CEO of The Toro Company. "It is deeply rooted in our purpose and is the foundation of our strategic business priorities of accelerating profitable growth, driving productivity and operational excellence, and empowering our people. We believe sustainability practices and guiding principles rest at the core of creating long-term value and positive change in the markets we support and in the communities we serve around the world."
Sustainability Endures introduces four strategic pillars - People, Products, Process and Planning - that help define and guide The Toro Company's sustainability strategies and execution of those strategies. Through these pillars, The Toro Company is focusing on environmental, social and governance areas that it believes are most material to the company and where it can make a meaningful impact, including health and safety, diversity, equity and inclusion, water conservation, product innovation and operational efficiency.
