I wouldn't be surprised if carbon trading wasn't at the back of it somewhere. All very large companies are either under pressure, or feel the need, to reduce their 'carbon footprint'. As a manufacturer of carbon producing motor cars, Toyota have a greater need than most to be seen to be doing something about it.

>I found this article on the BBC. It seems Tesco are shipping their goods to Scotland using rail now too.
It also got a longish slot on the Today programme this morning. It's an interesting move.

I'm not a sub-editor but, have I missed something in this paragraph:-

"The project is expected to generate £3m of environmental benefits over as many years, according to ministers."

I read that as saying the project is going save £3m in 3m years or one pound a year. I've been backwards through the article but probably because I am looking, I can't find another time period reference.
