When asked if this campaign is in response to the Toyota Recalls, Leadership can honestly claim: Photo courtesy of http://www.flickr.com/photos/diadsie/ "Yes in part: how does a company show it wishes to repair a relationship? However we do spend more than this each year on scholarships for achievement in just the U.S. At the same time, this latest recall has been beneficial to us; it has made us reflect even more on what is really important to us as a company, and it’s not just advancements and innovations, even the green ones we are so proud of."
