Honda Shows Its Greener Side
Did you know that 10 of the 12 different Honda model ranges, 10 carry a ULEV (Ultra-Low-Emission Vehicle), PZEV (Partial-Zero-Emission Vehicle), or AT-PZEV (Advanced Technology Partial-Zero-Emission Vehicle) sticker? Well, it didn't happen by accident. Honda has been committed to the environment before "green" was anything but a color.
You don't need to take our word for it, either. The Carbon Disclosure Project, an independent non-profit, has recently released their 2011 Global 500 Report, which includes two telling indexes related to CO2 governance: the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) and the Carbon Performance Leadership Index (CPLI). Both indexes rate different companies worldwide.
The CDLI pays particularly close attention to corporate strategies and jurisdictions regarding the disclosure of climate information. The index featured only 52 companies, automotive and not. Honda ranked highest among all leading Japanese companies.
The CPLI featured an even more exclusive collection of companies, 29 to be exact. Again, Honda shone bright.
Shortly after the indexes were released, Honda issued a press release, acknowledging not only the proactive efforts which led to such distinctions, but humbly professing the company has a lot more work to do ahead. "In June, this year, Honda announced the Honda Environmental Vision: Realizing 'the Joy and Freedom of Mobility' and 'a Sustainable Society where People Can Enjoy Life'," they explained in the release." Toward the realization of this vision, Honda also introduced a global environmental slogan - 'Blue Skies for Our Children'. Honda will continue its company-wide efforts to realize it environmental vision."1
