TMP is the FIRST automotive company in the Philippines to be awarded the ISO 14001 Certification for its
Environmental Management System, adopting a set of standards and requirements established by the International
Organization for Standardization for Environmental Management.
One of the features of the Environmental Management System is TMP's Waste WAter Treatment Plant (WWTP) which can treat
840 cubic meter of industrial and sanitary waste water per day. This P140M investment ensures that only clean and safe
water goes into the water system of Laguna. Furthermore, the WWTP features a Greenroof, which reduces heat from the sun
permeating through the roof, consequently reducing electricity consumption of air conditioning units.
Another is the use of solar power in TMP's Manufacturing Plant through Solatubes. This is a natural lighting technology,
reducing lighting electricity requirement by 50%. The concentrated light from the capture device offers luminance during
daylight with no energy cost. Also, Solar panels are utilized to supply power to TMP's sports facility and employee's
