General Motors is willing to spend a significant amount of money to clean up eight million metric tons worth of carbon footprint.
The $40 million is to be spread over a three to five year period, which will consist of programs such as harvesting methane from local landfills (that can be used as a clean energy source) or providing solar panels to schools.
Along with contributing to the collective good of society, it should be noted that The General has decreased its factory emissions by 60 percent since 1990 and has seen a 35 percent decrease in water usage as of last year on a global scale. What’s more, 90 percent of the company’s waste is recycled and nearly half of its assembly plants worldwide operate landfill-free. Now, give the video a watch and sound off your thoughts in the comments. We just wish that Chevrolet wouldn’t get all of the credit.
