GM Sustainability


If a vehicle’s sustainability is important to you, then stop by SouthTowne Motors to test drive one of our GM models. GM’s 2014 Sustainability Report shows that the auto manufacturer leads in several areas.

GM’s Leading Ways

GM is the Number One automaker for voluntary carbon reductions. Though the government requires reductions, GM does it voluntarily and goes beyond the requirements. GM is also the Number One auto manufacturer with clean energy patents. It has the most of any organization since 2002.

Furthermore, GM has 122 landfill-free facilities – it is the automotive industry leader in landfill-free facilities. Seventy of its facilities meet the voluntary U.S. EPA ENERGY STAR Challenge for the industry. Additionally, 40 of this auto manufacturer’s sites around the world are certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council; and the solar footprint at 18 of its facilities are equal to the size of 104 football fields.

Customer Service and Better Communities

GM uses improved mobility to build better communities and to better serve its customers. This approach to sustainability is part of what makes GM exceptional. In 2014, GM received eight segment awards in the J.D Power 2014 Vehicle Dependability Study – more than any automaker in 2014.

Six of GM’s U.S. models deliver an EPA-estimated 40 mpg* on the highway – or better than 40 mpg. These vehicle are all Chevrolet models and include the Cruze, Cruze Eco, Sonic5, Sonic, Spark BEV and the Volt. The new 2015 Volt can travel an average of 1,000 miles between fueling as long as it is regularly charged.

GM doesn’t just do things to better itself, it also took part in local education initiatives. These initiatives mostly focused on STEM education, including the first Robotics Competition for high school students. 170 of GM’s facilities took part in this project.
