"This week, Honda reaffirmed our commitment to reducing the total life-cycle environmental impact of our operations in North America in a big way, highlighted by the announcement of a $210 million investment in an advanced painting system at Honda’s Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio, which will eliminate water use and significantly reduce levels of CO2 emissions and volatile organic compounds.

This Honda "Green Path" approach is captured in the latest of Honda’s environmental video series tracing Honda’s efforts at each product stage—from design and production to transportation and sales. It features our two wind turbines at Honda Transmission Manufacturing and our support in designing the automax railcar for vehicle shipping. Honda's latest environmental initiatives include a new compressed natural gas fueling station in Ohio and a 1-megawatt rooftop solar array at our Parts Distribution Center in Connecticut.

As the first automaker to voluntarily declare CO2 emissions reductions on a global basis in 2006, Honda has established an aggressive GHG emissions reduction target that will require significant improvements in the efficiency of our products and operations, coupled with the deployment of significant amounts of renewable energy.

We're motivated by the challenge before us, and in the spirit of transparency, look forward to sharing our progress with stakeholders as we continue down our 'Green Path'.”
