Themed "Greentech for Growth", the IGEM2012 aims to help push the rapid adoption of green technology to deliver a double impact of sustainable economic growth as well as to address the environmental and energy security issues. As part of Toyota Global Vision commitment, UMW Toyota Motor is in support of this effort to lead the way to the future of mobility enriching lives around the world and respect for the planet with the safest and most responsible ways of moving people.

The idea of participating in this international exhibition is to showcase and create public awareness for consumers and public awareness on Toyota’s world renowned Toyota Full Hybrid System technology. Apart from strongly supporting the Malaysian government’s positive stance towards the environment, it provides opportunity for visitors to learn more about the development story behind the Toyota Hybrid System technology, how it works, and its class-leading benefits, which lead to conservation of the environment. The Toyota Hybrid System was displayed through videos, display panels and other exhibition materials.

The IGEM 2012 brings the dynamism of renewable energy, energy efficiency and green transportation for adoption and start-ups, while providing an essential platform to launch, feature and showcase innovative eco products, green technologies and services. It is indeed a must-attend event for green product buyers and sellers to interact, transact and forge new partnerships and cross border collaboration.
