GM Teams with EPA to Address Climate Concerns
GM is joining the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Climate Leaders Partnership, a new, voluntary program that seeks to reduce corporate-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. As part of the program, partners inventory their GHG emissions to track progress toward their reduction goal. “Working with the EPA through Climate Leaders is a way for GM to demonstrate our commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and is an excellent example of a collaborative public-private partnership,” said Elizabeth Lowery, GM vice president, environment and energy. Under the partnership, GM has agreed to submit a company-wide inventory of GHG emissions annually, and enter into discussions with the EPA to develop a U.S. corporate-wide reduction goal to be achieved over five years.
