In The Spotlight
Universal access, electrified technologies including fuel cell technology, automated driving, mobility as a service, connected mobility, and TPS-based transportation support are among the technologies and services that will give officials, athletes and spectators an experience of tomorrow's "mobility for all" and support the sustainable and smooth operation of "the most innovative Games in history."
July 23, 2018―TOKYO, Japan―With two years to go until the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, Toyota today outlined the mobility concept that will become the basis for its Tokyo 2020 Games activities, organized around three main pillars : (1) Mobility for all; (2) Sustainability, centering on the realization of a hydrogen society, with the environment and safety as core principles; and (3) Transportation support of staff, media and athletes between Games venues using a Toyota Production System (TPS)-based system.
Toyota believes that giving unprecedented access to people including those with impairments brings the notion of mobility back to its most fundamental meaning: the freedom to move.
In collaboration with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, the company would like to help make Tokyo, the first host city to welcome both the Olympic and the Paralympic Games for the second time, a global showcase for "Mobility for All," contributing to making those Games the most innovative in history.
"The freedom of being mobile is at the heart of being able to participate in society," said Toyota President Akio Toyoda. "If someone wants to take on a challenge and moving is what is preventing them from doing so, Toyota would like to help tackle that problem. We want mobility to be a possibility, not an obstacle. By being involved with the Olympics, the Paralympics and the Special Olympics Games, I hope that Toyota will come to respect everyone's uniqueness and embrace diversity. Once that is realized, we will finally be able to take a step closer to our goal of "mobility for all" and ensure, like athletes show us every day, that being mobile equals having a chance to make one's dreams come true."
Toyota became the first worldwide mobility partner of the IOC and the IPC in 2015 with the aim to contribute to "creating a peaceful society without discrimination through sports" and "a commitment to creating a sustainable society through mobility". Additionally, from last year, Toyota launched its first global corporate initiative, "Start Your Impossible," to bring people together and contribute to a society where all people can challenge what is possible. The product categories covered by the Toyota sponsorship are: vehicles, mobility services and certain transportation and mobility support products (including robots). At Tokyo 2020, Toyota's support will be deployed in three main areas:
- "Mobility for All"
Taking on the challenge to provide the freedom to move to everyone including those with impairments through the Tokyo 2020 games, Toyota will:
- Showcase the future of automated driving as the ultimate "mobility for all", demonstrating how automated vehicles could one day offer the freedom to move everyone. Verification testing and demonstrations using SAE Level 4* automation, where all driving functions are performed by the vehicle in certain well-defined areas of operation, will take place in the Tokyo Water Front City and Haneda areas in Tokyo;
- Introduce a new type of moving experience through a demonstration of "TOYOTA Concept-i," a car that recognizes drivers' emotions and preferences and can make conversation using artificial intelligence (AI);
- CES2018 design model
- Support transportation services for athletes and affiliated guests around the Athlete's Village with e-Palette, the next generation battery electric vehicle specially designed for Mobility as a Service (MaaS);
- CES2018 design model
- Provide its existing assistive vehicles lineup, WelCab, as well as new personal mobility devices and support for last-mile mobility needs.
Toyota also hopes its new JPN Taxi, introduced in October 2017, will be popular around Tokyo to welcome visitors from around the world, including people using wheelchairs.
- Provide personal mobility solutions such as the Toyota i-ROAD as well as a standing-riding device to support working staff at the Games, such as security officers.
- Sustainability, with the environment and safety as core principles, centered on the realization of a hydrogen society
Toyota plans to contribute to sustainable Games by providing a fleet of over 3,000 passenger vehicles for official use and others, equipped with the latest environmental and safety technologies to minimize environmental burden and traffic accidents.
- In order to make Tokyo 2020 a turning point in realizing a hydrogen society, Toyota will support the Games and their legacy with a large number of zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) such as the Mirai sedan for official use. In addition, the Fuel Cell Bus "Sora," as well as Fuel Cell forklifts made and sold by Toyota Industries Corporation, will help support the Games.
- In addition to FCEV, the latest Hybrid Electric / Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV / PHEV) from the Toyota and Lexus line-ups, as well as new Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV), will mainly compose the rest of the fleet. In total, the company and the Games' organisers aim to achieve the lowest emissions target level of any official vehicle fleet used at the Olympic and Paralympic Games with the use of these official vehicles.
- Vehicles for official use will be equipped with the latest active safety technology packages such as Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) and Lexus Safety System+ (LSS+), as well as Parking Support Brake (PKSB), a technology to help prevent collisions that primarily occur in parking lots and garages.
- In addition to official vehicles above, some vehicles will feature Highway Teammate, an automated driving safety function that allows hands-off driving on highways (SAE Level 2* automation).
- Games official transportation support using the Toyota Production System
It is estimated that 15 million visitors will join Tokyo's 15 million citizens during the Games period. While the Tokyo Metropolitan Area will surely live up to its reputation as one of the most efficient cities for urban mobility, Toyota will support the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee to help ensure a safe and effective transportation between venues for those using the official fleet. To do this, the company will provide the knowledge it has garnered over years of experience applying the Toyota Production System.
- Toyota will also support the movement of official staff and athletes to and from events with the latest information and connected technologies, such as vehicle Data Communication Modules connected to its Mobility Service Platform, to provide safe, secure, and smooth transportation of people and freight during the games.
- Toyota will also support on-the-ground vehicle dispatching and transportation operations from an efficiency standpoint.
Cities around the world currently face challenges surrounding mobility, having to solve issues ranging from traffic congestion to air pollution, traffic accidents, and access for people with impairments. Starting from Tokyo 2020 and through Beijing 2022 and Paris 2024, Toyota is hoping to help tackle these challenges in collaboration with stakeholders around the world, and contribute to creating legacy to realize a sustainable mobility society.
Toyota will disclose more of its plans and contributions, including those related to new mobility products and solutions, moving forward between now and Tokyo 2020.

LONDON, July 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
EFRA Committee calls for Government action to tackle cruel fur sales
An Inquiry by the Environment Food and Rural Affairs Committee, launched in response to investigations by Humane Society International UK and media partners, published its report today calling on Government to hold a public consultation to consider whether to ban the import and sale of animal fur in the UK, post-Brexit. The report, welcomed by HSI UK which leads the #FurFreeBritain campaign, also calls on the Government to introduce a new mandatory fur and animal product labelling regime to enable consumers to make informed buying choices.
In response to the Committee's question 'Should the UK ban fur?', HSI UK presented detailed evidence of the inherent cruelty of fur farming and trapping, as well as the 'moral inconsistency' between the UK's ban on fur farming and the importation of fur, described by the charity as 'outsourcing cruelty'. Despite UK-wide bans of fur farming on ethical grounds since 2003, and EU bans on the sale of cat and dog fur (2007) and seal fur (2010), the UK still allows the import and sale of fur from a range of other species such as fox, rabbit, mink, coyote, racoon dog, and chinchilla. The vast majority of these animals are factory-farmed in battery cage systems in countries such as China, Poland and Finland. According to the most recent trade statistics from HMRC, in the last year* the UK imported almost £75 million of animal fur (£74,154,873). It's a double standard that HSI UK hopes to see outlawed.
HSI UK Executive Director Claire Bass said "The UK was the first country in the world to ban fur farming, after the British public, politicians and veterinary experts concluded that it is an inhumane and completely unnecessary industry. So it is total double standard for us to still be importing and selling fur from animals still suffering the same conditions we banned here. The UK Government has the opportunity to blaze a trail as the first country to ban the sale of all animal fur, so we are delighted that EFRA Committee members are pressing government to launch a public consultation to help inform and build that case. Our #FurFreeBritain campaign already has the support of the British public, veterinary experts, as well as an ever-growing list of retailers and designers who see that the future of fashion is fur-free. With innovation in textiles offering high quality humane alternatives to real fur, the fur trade's days are clearly numbered, but it can't end quickly enough for the hundreds of millions of animals trapped and tormented in tiny cages. A UK ban would be a major nail in the coffin of this morally bankrupt industry."
The EFRA report is extremely critical of the mis-sale of real animal fur as fake fur, a scandal exposed by HSI UK, and urges decisive action from retailers and Trading Standards to ensure that consumers are not sold 'fake faux fur'. Evidence presented to the Committee by HSI UK underlined deficiencies in the current labelling laws, including that there is no legal requirement to use the specific word "fur" on items containing real fur. Evidence submitted by HSI UK showed the Committee numerous examples of real fur being sold as fake fur on the UK high street and online, commonly containing labels such as '100% acrylic'. The Committee acknowledged the extent of the problem, stating that 'the current labelling system is confusing, not-fit-for purpose, and with a high degree of non-compliance. It is also not being enforced.' The report recommends that a new labelling law should ensure that items containing fur should list the species, country of origin and method of production.
HSI's campaign for a fur import ban was also discussed in Parliament on June 4th in a Westminster Hall debate at which 32 MPs from across the political spectrum passionately spoke out in favour of banning fur imports from the United Kingdom, calling the fur trade "vile", "loathsome" and the "grimmest of human activities". Some of the fur ban's most vocal political advocates include, Kerry McCarthy, Sir Roger Gale, Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell MP, Tim Loughton, Daniel Zeichner, Caroline Lucas, Maria Eagle and Zac Goldsmith.
The campaign has also garnered strong celebrity support; 31 of the country's biggest celebrities - including Dame Judi Dench, Ricky Gervais, Alesha Dixon, Paloma Faith, Evanna Lynch, sent a letter to the Prime Minister calling for a fur import ban. The full letter and list of signatories can be read here.
And last month, Environment Secretary Michael Gove received a letter from 50 vets and animal experts speaking out against cruel fur farming. The full letter and list of signees can be read here.
- More than 130 million animals suffer each year in the global fur trade, the majority reared in terrible conditions on fur factory farms. This number does not include rabbits, whose numbers (in the hundreds of millions) are not reported by the fur trade.
- There is no legal requirement to use the specific word "fur" on items containing real fur. EU regulations require items defined as "textile products" that contain animal fur to carry the confusing wording "contains non-textile parts of animal origin" however this does not clearly tell consumers that it means 'real animal fur,' and in practice this wording requirement is rarely adhered to at all, as evidenced in our report 'Mislabelled and misleading'. Products sold online are exempt even from the above confusing wording requirement, and footwear or non-garment accessories such as handbags and keychains are also excluded.
- Around the world in countries such as the U.S., France, Poland and China, wild species are kept in small, barren battery cages for their entire lives before being killed by gassing or electrocution.
- Wild animals such as coyotes fair no better - they can languish in agony in cruel traps for hours or even days before dying from dehydration, starvation or attacks by predators, or being shot or crushed to death when the trapper returns.
- A 2018 YouGov poll commissioned by HSI UK shows that more than two-thirds of the British public support a UK fur import ban, with only 8% opposed to the idea.
In recent times there has been a fast-growing list of designers banning fur - Gucci, Versace, Michael Kors, Donna Karan and Jimmy Choo - who join those with long-standing fur bans, such as Hugo Boss, Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, and Vivienne Westwood. * ( April 2017 - March 2018 inclusive)

LOS ANGELES, July 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) and world-renowned greenhouse tomato and cucumber producer, Houweling's Tomatoes, today announced the installation of a new greenhouse thermal curtain system at Houweling's facility in Camarillo, California. The thermal curtain system is designed to reduce heat loss at night, functioning as a thermal barrier between the plants and the roof of the greenhouse, and is estimated to save the grower more than 225,000 therms per year, the equivalent of removing more than 250 cars from California roads. The system also works to reduce the volume of air that requires heating inside the greenhouse, and will provide the customer with approximately $80,000 in annual energy cost savings. The new greenhouse energy efficiency upgrade was purchased in part with a $176,000 rebate check through SoCalGas' Energy Efficiency Rebates for Businesses (EERB) program. To date, the utility has supported Houweling's Tomatoes energy efficiency efforts with more than $725,000 in rebate funding for energy- and cost-saving technologies.
Photos of the facility and the new energy-efficient upgrade are available here.
"Energy efficiency innovations, like these thermal curtains, help our customers save on energy costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change," said Rasha Prince, director of commercial and industrial services at SoCalGas. "Houweling's is a true leader in sustainability and partnerships like this can go a long way toward achieving California's climate goals, while supporting great industries and good jobs across the state."
"SoCalGas' energy efficiency rebate programs have been instrumental to the success of our business," said Casey Houweling, owner and chairman of Houweling's Tomatoes. "SoCalGas has been a dedicated partner to Houweling's, not only in helping us move forward with projects we otherwise may not have been able to, but in helping us create the most efficient greenhouse operation in the country."
Through SoCalGas' EERB program, commercial, industrial, and agricultural customers of the utility can apply for energy efficiency rebates on qualifying energy-efficient, natural gas-fired equipment and improvements for the business, like commercial grade dishwashers, ovens, clothes washers, space-heating and other boilers, water heaters, steam traps, and other energy-saving equipment, that help offset a portion of the cost up to $1,000,000 per customer, per year.
SoCalGas has been a long-time energy efficiency partner of Houweling's Tomatoes, working together on many projects. In 2011, the utility helped the greenhouse leader fund the installation of the first-ever cogeneration power system in the United States that uses combined heat and power technology to capture traditionally wasted CO2, heat, and water for use within the greenhouse, while large natural gas-powered engines produce enough electricity to power the full operation and 8,800 local homes. In total, the new 13.2-megawatt system saves Houweling's over 14,000 gallons of water every day, and has diverted more than 21,000 tons of CO2 emissions – the equivalent of taking 4,000 cars off the road – by converting it into fertilizer.
Energy efficiency programs and rebates are just one way SoCalGas helps business and residential customers keep their energy bills affordable. Since 1990, the utility's energy efficiency and rebate programs have reduced emissions equal to taking almost 700,000 cars off the road and have saved SoCalGas customers more than $670 million in utility bill costs. Moreover, because of energy efficiency measures and new innovative technology, business and homes account for only about 7.5 percent of greenhouse gas emissions statewide, according to the California Air Resources Board. SoCalGas offers more than 90 energy efficiency programs that deliver close to $161 million in annual cost savings directly to its customers.
SoCalGas is a leader in researching and developing new technologies that improve energy efficiency, reduce emissions, and keep bills affordable for customers. The utility is working to increase the production and use of renewable natural gas, or biogas, which turns methane emissions into a source of clean energy to fuel homes and businesses. Decarbonizing natural gas pipelines with renewable natural gas will help California obtain deep greenhouse gas reductions at the lowest overall cost while preserving energy choice for residents and businesses alike. Learn more about the environmental and cost-saving benefits of renewable natural gas by viewing the utility's latest video, Digesting the Facts About Renewable Natural Gas, on SoCalGas' YouTube Channel.
Natural gas is the most affordable, reliable, clean, and increasingly renewable energy choice for home and water heating and cooking in Southern California and is used by more than 90 percent of residents in the region. According to the American Gas Association (AGA), households that use natural gas for water and space heating, cooking and clothes drying save an average of $874 per year compared to homes using electricity for those applications.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, SoCalGas® is the largest natural gas distribution utility in the United States. SoCalGas delivers affordable, reliable, clean and increasingly renewable natural gas service to 21.7 million customers across 22,000 square miles of Central and Southern California, where more than 90 percent of residents use natural gas for heating, hot water, cooking, drying clothes or other uses. Natural gas delivered through the company's pipelines also plays a key role in providing electricity to Californians—about 60 percent of electric power generated in the state comes from gas-fired power plants.
SoCalGas is committed to investing in its natural gas system infrastructure, while keeping bills affordable for our customers. From 2013 through 2017, the company spent nearly $6 billion to upgrade and modernize its natural gas system to enhance safety and reliability. The company is also committed to being a leader in the region's clean energy future, and is working to accelerate the use of renewable natural gas from dairy farms, landfills and wastewater treatment plants and the development of renewable energy storage technologies. SoCalGas is a subsidiary of Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE), a Fortune 500 energy services holding company based in San Diego.

DUBLIN, July 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Automotive Paints Market by Type, Resin, Technology, Paint Equipment, Texture, Content, ICE & EVs, Refinish, and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The automotive paints market is estimated to be USD 8.74 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 10.65 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 2.88% from 2018 to 2025.
The demand for automotive paints is driven by the increasing demand for vehicles; whereas, technologies and R&D investments are influenced by government regulations.
However, advancements in automotive safety technologies have resulted in the reduced number of accidents, which, in turn, is a restraint for the automotive refinish paints market.
Waterborne technology is estimated to have the largest share in automotive paints market, by technology
The major advantage of waterborne paint is its low toxicity and flammability due to lower VOC levels. Paints based on this technology have excellent adhesion and greater heat resistance compared to solvent-based paints.
Owing to stringent emission regulations such as Regulation, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH), countries in Europe are reducing the use of solvent-borne paints and have shifted towards eco-friendly waterborne paints.
North America and Europe are estimated to showcase the largest usage rate for waterborne paints and are projected to grow at a steady pace over the forecast period.
Developing markets such as India and China are also switching to water-based paints, thus increasing the demand for waterborne paints over the forecast period.
Asia Oceania to dominate the automotive paints market
The automotive industry in the Asia Oceania region has been dynamic over the past few years and has seen an increase in the annual production of passenger and commercial vehicles. As a result, in the recent years, Asia Oceania has emerged as a hub for automobile production.
As compared to the region's substantial population, the vehicle ownership is low, making Asia Oceania an attractive market for global manufacturers. With the increasing vehicle production, the demand for paint will also increase, making increasing vehicle production the single biggest driver of the Asia Oceania automotive paints market.
Currently, due to the lack of strict VOC regulations, the usage of waterborne paints is lower than that in the western countries. This situation, however, is expected to change in the future and the demand for waterborne coating is projected to increase.
These factors combined, Asia Oceania is projected to be the largest automotive paint market over the forecast period.
