Sustainability Commitment

Change How The World Works

Our world is continuously created by the hard work of people. The parks that bring generations together. The sports grounds that host epic rivalries. The infrastructure that revitalizes communities.

At The Toro Company, we believe that changing how we all work can change our world. That’s why we create high-performing products with a lower impact on the planet. It’s why we create jobs that support communities, and services that connect them. We develop innovative, efficient and reliable solutions that empower our customers to achieve more with fewer resources – less water, fuel and waste.

By changing how we work, together we can enrich our communities, landscapes and world.

For over a century, we have embraced our responsibility of being good stewards of the land. Sustainability is not merely a concept for The Toro Company but rather woven into our everyday operations, shaping how we approach the industries and communities we support and innovate our market-leading products. Our teams have accomplished a great deal and we are making steady progress on our journey.
