Derby City Council has partnered with Toyota as it works towards the future of its transport system. The local authority's main goal is to design environment-friendly solutions to attain net zero-carbon emissions in the near future.
The T-DREAM (Toyota-Derby Revolution in Energy and Access to Mobility) partnership will focus on exploring how people can work together to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in Debry while boosting the local economy.
Richard Kenworthy, the managing director of Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK, said: “The signing of the collaboration agreement allows Toyota the opportunity to explore mobility products and solutions to support Derby city in achieving its climate agenda.
“Toyota’s ambition is to be a mobility company. We want to be able to propose sustainable mobility products and services to a wide variety of stakeholders with a strong focus on hydrogen and the role that it can play in transforming society.
“Derby City’s goals are very much in line with our own and this partnership agreement reinforces that collaboration going forward.”
City council chief executive Paul Simpson said: “Our ambition is to support thriving economies, build sustainably, and create stronger urban communities.
“Covid-19 has demonstrated what is possible when we work together; creating an environment to deepen and extend our relationships.
“It is vital to our recovery to reach beyond organisational boundaries and across sectors, as well as local and national boundaries, to build partnerships.
“This agreement signals a shared vision for deeper collaboration and creates a strategic partnership built on shared exploration and learning to support thriving economies, build sustainability, and create stronger urban communities.”
