Honda recently released its global Environmental Annual Report that summarizes the company’s environmental goals and where they are in terms of achieving those CO2 emissions reductions.
See the complete report here.
Here are some of the highlights:
- A 15.2% reduction in CO2 emissions from automobiles (the goal is 30% by 2020)
- A 27.4 reduction from motorcycles (goal of 30% by 2020)
- 14.7% reduction from power products (same goal as above)
- There has been a 50.1% reduction in use of ‘substances of concern’
Kudos to Honda for putting its environmental goals out for the world to see so they can be held accountable. By the looks of things it looks like Honda is on schedule to achieve it’s environmental goals and make a big difference in the world!
Honda is proving to the world that it is dedicated to reducing its CO2 emissions all over the world. Honda is going to invest more than $49 million to build a wind farm in Brazil; Honda’s goal is to reduce overall emissions by 30% by the year 2020 (compared to levels in the year 2000).
According to this article, “The proposed wind power plant will employ nine wind power turbine units and is expected to generate around 85,000MW of electricity annually, and will become operational by the end of September 2014.”
Honda is establishing a new subsidiary, Honda Energy do Brasil, which is doing all it can to minimize its own footprint while decreasing Honda’s overall carbon footprint.
“Wind power generation has proven to be very effective in reducing CO2 emissions,” said Honda Energy do Brasil president Carlos Eigi. ”Through the utilization of renewable energy, Honda will continue to be proactive in pursuing environmental conservation activities in Brazil.”
We love to see Honda’s dedication to environmentally products and processes, especially with stories that show it’s a global effort and not one that we can see in the United States.
