Honda recently shared the brand’s 12th annual North American Environmental Report (NAER) with consumers. This document shares how the brand’s practices in several key areas impact the planet as well as address the environmental processes measured. Back in 1992, Honda served as a leader in the auto industry by creating its own Environmental Statement, and remains committed to finding solutions to improve the manufacturing and sales of Honda vehicles in an environmentally-conscious way.

A few highlights from this year’s annual North American Environmental Report:

  • Development of a recycling program for service parts that include wheels, catalytic converters, engines, and nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries
  • Increases in fuel economy with reduced tailpipe emissions for new Honda vehicles, including a decrease in CO2 emissions of a substantial 6.6% for Acura and Honda vehicles from the previous year
  • Decrease in total manufacturing waste, including a drop in solid waste per vehicle produced at 4.9% from the previous year and a total landfill waste decrease of a whopping 92% from the 2001 baseline year

Honda continues to show a commitment to a cleaner, greener automotive industry. Wonder what the brand has in mind for the future? The report also states that the brand aims for making electric or hybrid vehicles meet two-thirds of its global sales by 2030 as well as halving its total company CO2 emissions levels by 2050, measured against the baseline of the fiscal year 2000.
