Striving for Zero Environmental Impact

At Honda, we take great care to consider the environmental impact of everything we do, and everything we make. By 2040, Honda will sell 100% zero emission electrified vehicles in North America.

Securing a Carbon-Free Future through Virtual Power

Tackling CO2 emissions is the biggest challenge that our society faces today. That’s why we’ve entered into long-term virtual power purchase agreements for renewable wind and solar power that will cover more than 60% of the electricity that Honda uses in North America. Learn how we’ll achieve a carbon-free future with our new wind and solar power investments.

Sustainable Manufacturing

The biggest environmental impact from vehicles, other than driving them, is from building them. Honda decreases its CO2 generation by reducing energy usage, increasing energy efficiency of processes and using renewable energy. Some examples of these efforts include the installation of LED lighting and lighting controls, replacing aging equipment with more energy efficient equipment, managing usage on weekends and between shifts. Honda has decreased it CO2 emissions by 8.8% and plans to use 100% renewable energy at its manufacturing plants by 2030.

Smaller Footprint, Bigger Savings

At Honda, we continuously strive to develop the next cutting-edge vehicle to deliver us to a carbon-free future. Ensuring a cleaner planet tomorrow includes optimizing the driver experience today. Honda SmartCharge™ helps drivers reduce their environmental footprint and save money by tailoring the charging process to the driver’s daily schedule. SmartCharge™ allows the driver to refuel when electricity demand is low and the availability of renewable energy is high.
