Furthermore Toyota has for decades pursued cost containment strategies for continuously improving productivity and reducing waste of materials. This was done for profit reasons yet is is also good for the environment. Every saving of raw materials means that less natural resource are used to make cars.
Lately Toyota also developed a hybrid car. This is a bad idea on the whole but it is probably the least bad way the environmental movement's agenda could be furthered.
So Toyota is eco-friendly, profitable and produces good cars. Why are American politicians not begging Toyota to take over American companies and introduce better management? Instead they ignore Toyota and praise incompetent wasteful companies that produce inferior cars.
