1. Achieve carbon neutrality for all corporate products and activities
2. 100% renewable energy use (zero energy from fossil waste)
3. Circularity of resources (100% use of sustainable materials)
Resource recycling will play an important role in Honda’s efforts to achieve zero environmental impact. The company seeks to create a closed-loop, circular economy that maximizes the useful life of materials in Honda products.
By developing systems to recover materials from its products when they reach the end of their useful life, Honda can reuse, repurpose, retrofit and recycle them into new products and promote the circular economy .
All of Honda’s manufacturing plants in North America throw almost no waste into landfills, and these plants also recycle 92% of the waste from their respective facilities. In addition, 99% of waste from Honda’s 12 US parts storage and distribution centers was recycled.
Honda reduced its total CO2 emissions by 29.5% due to Honda’s virtual power purchase agreement with the Boiling Springs Wind Farm in Oklahoma and lower vehicle production at Honda facilities.
More than 500 Honda suppliers in North America report their CO2 emissions to Honda and work to reduce their carbon footprint. Established in 2019, Honda’s Supplier Green Excellence Program aims to reduce and eliminate greenhouse gas emissions throughout Honda’s entire value chain, helping to contribute to the company’s goal of carbon neutrality.
Honda’s suppliers use the Manufacturing 2030 Energy Management System to track key environmental data, including CO2 emissions, and identify new opportunities for reductions. Honda helps its suppliers achieve corporate energy goals and reduce energy costs.
In spring 2022, Honda and the Honda USA Foundation awarded $2 million in grants to 49 organizations in support of conservation initiatives and environmental education.
Honda is committed to addressing global environmental and energy issues by striving to achieve carbon neutrality for all corporate products and activities by 2050. America and around the world by 2040.

Wants to cover electricity. This allows the remaining carbon-intensive grid-supplied electricity to fully offset the electricity used in its automotive manufacturing operations. Honda also promotes environmentally responsible business practices with its suppliers and retail dealer partners in North America.
